Tim Hughes-Chef de Cuisine


Tim is the resident expert when it comes to seafood and wine and has over 16 years in the food industry. His father was a chef and Tim began learning his way around a kitchen at the tender age of 7—you might say that the love of preparing good food is just part of his DNA. There’s no one who loves sharing recipes more than Tim, and he has a million of them! The customers have loved learning the proper way to prepare seafood from Tim—just ask him and he’ll be happy to share! Tim also offers cooking classes to our customers from time to time.

Chef Twillia Glover

After 18 years as a chef in Providence, Rhode Island Chef Twillia finally made her way back to her Alabama home. We were fortunate enough to find her to work her magic in the Land & Sea Café. Twillia’s Southern roots have inspired her to add a down—home comfort twist to classic French training. She is passionate about sustainable local and organic farming. Twilla attended the Culinary Institute of America in both Hyde Park, New York and Napa Valley California.

OUR MISSION: To help our customers live healthier, happier lives by providing the freshest, most flavorful seafood and meat available.
