Fun Facts!

Marc Wegman started cooking at 14 years old, mostly out of necessity because his parents didn't cook, and he and his 4 brothers had to eat. Born and raised in New Orleans, his heritage naturally drew him to Cajun cuisine, and he became curious about different ways to prepare food and how to play with various flavors. This childhood hobby led him to pursuing a culinary degree from Delgado Tech and ultimately landed him in one of the most famous restaurants in all of New Orleans. Marc spent a decade in the 80s and 90s with the Brennan Family Restaurants, namely Commanders Palace, Mr. B's, and Brennans New Orleans. Marc worked as a Sous Chef for Chefs Paul Prudhomme, Emeril Lagasse, Jamie Shannon, and more, many of whom he lists as his role models. Learning from the best of New Orleans, Marc developed a passion for food and the restaurant business that would serve him well later in life.
