With all indications pointing to a career in finance, Chef Kochan felt unsatisfied and drawn to an entirely different field. He began studying and in three short years completed a second degree in Culinary Management, rose to the rank of Sous Chef at Marigold Kitchen and subsequently purchased the business along with Chef Tim Lanza. 

He has since been working with Lanza and Krajewski to develop increasingly intricate menus at Marigold Kitchen.

Chef Tim Lanza

Having worked in medicine and studied marketing, Chef Lanza found himself drawn to the allure of the fine dining industry. While completing his degree, Lanza quickly earned the prestigious title of Chef de Cuisine.

Now, having partnered with coworker Chef Andrew Kochan, Chef Lanza is carrying on the tradition of excellence that Marigold Kitchen has long upheld.
