Sam Stachon grew up farming. In Michigan, Sam preserved vegetables, tapped maple trees for syrup and raised animals. He attended culinary school at Johnson & Wales in Charlotte, and opened King's Kitchen with the Noble Restaurant Group. Hickory, NC called him, and now he's the executive chef at one of the hottest restaurants in the NC foothills. We can't wait to see what happens when two farmers at heart -- Krenz and Stachon -- fire up the kitchen!
