Meet Chef Lance

Chef Lance began his culinary career in the early 1990’s, at a resort in northern Michigan called Marsh Ridge. He was quickly taken under the wing of Chef Lynn Allen, who led him to enter his apprenticeship with the American Culinary Federation to formalize his education and knowledge of restaurant and resort style cuisine. 

Chef Lance went on to earn his stripes as Lead Line Chef, Banquet Production, and later Sous Chef at the Otsego Club Golf and Ski resort in Otsego, Michigan, where he held oversight and menu design of 5 restaurants and satellite operations for five years. 

In 2004, he took on the role of Executive Chef of well-known Sarasota, Florida restaurant, Mama Leone’s. There he maintained oversight of both front and back of house operations and had free reign to create the menu and beverage inspirations for six years.  


His accolades there include: 
- Restaurant of the year four times over from the Sarasota Herald Tribune
- Florida Kids’ Choice award for all-natural scratch cooking, 2009

Chef Lance has been a resident of Northwest Arkansas since 2018, serving as an Executive Corporate Chef and a Personal Chef, and is ready to bring his Classic Italian Cuisine to Fayetteville.
