"Mark's dining is always a treat. A cookbook of his rock & roll friends and international recipes spun from his travels make a wondrous contribution to a palate of the pantry. Viva Chef Bego!"
“I love that my friend Mark Bego has published a cookbook that includes recipes from some of my favorite stars! He even asked me for a couple. I can’t wait to get cookin’! I love it, and you will, too.”
“Wow! What a wonderful, wonderful project. The photos just jump off the pages at you and make you want to run into the kitchen and start cooking. Eat Like a Rock Star gave me a warm feeling!”
“Mark Bego has outdone himself once again, with this stellar collection of rock star recipes. After I got him to taste my Caprese Bruschetta with my manly Minestrone, followed by a couple of my signature Hollywood Cocktails, he is now convinced that although I may live in a cowboy hat and boots with chaps, I definitely left the old ‘chuck wagon grub’ far behind years ago. Kudos, Bego. Cook it up and rock on! Let's eat!”
—Randy Jones, the original Cowboy of the Village People
"Eat Like a Rock Star [is] the perfect project. Cornering his high profile friends to dish out and share their beloved favorites and recipes, Bego dove in to play cook, photographer, writer, and taste tester. . . . Thanks to Bego, even if you can’t sing like a rock star, you sure can eat like one."
