Meet The Team...

David Tomberlin
My lifelong love of great food and entertaining is part of my experience growing up in the South. Eating and socializing were a big part of our tradition, and I had the good fortune to be surrounded by great cooks and lots of natural, locally grown food. To this day I recall picking pecans and figs in my grandmother’s yard and helping her transform them into delicious pies, preserves and rich, flavorful snacks.

Even as a child, I loved to explore the kitchen and all its wonders. Just as many other aspiring cooks at the time, I learned from Julia Child on television and would then experiment with different foods and recipes, including the Crunchy Adirondack Granola offered today. As soon as I was on my own, I expanded my culinary skills and continued to surround myself with people who were passionate about food and entertaining.

While living in Atlanta, my circle of friends hosted dinners nearly every night of the week. We tested new recipes on each other and had great fun in the process. Several friends worked for an Atlanta-based cooking show host and another owned a catering business. Helping out wherever possible, I realized how much I loved working with food and helping people have a good time.

And so after twenty years in the corporate world, mostly in real estate, I decided it was time for a change. It’s only natural I chose to follow my dream of working with food and entertaining.
Russ Cronin, Jr.
Russ has an attachment to the Adirondacks that goes back three generations, when his family settled in Tupper Lake.

A rich family history of culinary service in the region (he learned much of this from his mother and grandmother) forms the basis for his love of food and entertaining.

Russ spent 35 years in Banking and Corporate Finance before returning to Tupper Lake in 2014. He handles the finances for our growing business, and on many nights and weekends you’ll find him ensuring our guests have an enjoyable dining experience.
