Mark Scarbrough is the writer in the Bruce
and Mark duo. A former academic, he's sometimes snarky because he's ridiculously innocent in the marrow. He reads Dante for fun and hangs out in art museums on sunny afternoons. He's a bemused Texan in snow drifts, a dumbfounded progressive, and a self-confessed culinary snob. He still teaches literature on the side and leads raucous book groups at Connecticut libraries.
Together, Bruce and Mark have written a shelf of cookbooks. They also pen a column called "Sundays in the Kitchen with Bruce and Mark" on weightwatchers.com. To put it bluntly, Bruce is olive oil; Mark, butter. Bruce wants a Christmas tree; Mark writes the haggadah for Passover. (It makes for interesting times.) They've contributed to most of the big food magazines and have been guests on many of the national morning shows.
Bruce and Mark are experts for Fine Cooking
