Chef change at Halcyon uptown

Halcyon, Flavors from the Earth has a new executive chef: James Stouffer, former kitchen manager, is taking over the role at the uptown restaurant that's part of The Mother Earth Group (which includes Fern and Something Classic). The concept will remain the same, according to the company's president, Jill Marcus, who noted previous executive chef Marc Jacksina (still listed on the Halcyon website at this time) "is an extremely talented and passionate chef. We wish him nothing but success."

I'll update on Jacksina's plans as soon as possible. The co-founder of Lulu in Plaza-Midwood, he's also cooked at the former Andrew Blair's and Kaffe Frappe in Charlotte and has cooked at the James Beard House for Halcyon.

This just in. Dennys gets a new shift leader. He recently got promoted from assistant shift leader.

Actually her post is important to those in the industry as well as those who are very much interested in food and the food scene. As Charlotte continues trying to transition from a chain driven town to a chef driven town, these posts support that. Thanks Helen.
