About Mark Leslie


Mark Leslie

Recently seen on NBC's Today Show, Mark Leslie loves to cook for anyone with an appetite, vacations in Italy every year and lives to eat his way through every plate of pasta and cone of gelato placed before him. 

His first book, Beyond the Pasta: Recipes, Language & Life with an Italian Family, tells of his life in Italy while cooking with an Italian grandmother.  He shares his food experiences on his blog at www.beyondthepasta.com

A Chicago-area native and "Yankee" by birth, Mark has lived in Alabama for over 24 years, and celebrates the fact that he started life eating farina, progressed to grits, and finally arrived at polenta. Buonissimo!

Mr. Leslie is a regular guest of WSFA 12 News' Alabama Live!
