Andy Marchant’s passion for food started with his family’s wholesale produce business. Being around fresh foods at an early age led him to appreciate quality ingredients which always inspired great meals. With a culinary career spanning over 35 years, Chef Andy has worked in the best restaurants of Charleston SC, The Park Hotel in Charlotte NC, and eventually opening The Restaurant at Cinnamon Hill in 1988. After eleven years of owning his own restaurant, Marchant would become the executive chef for Tronco’s Catering, the South Carolina Governor’s Mansion and many other professional kitchens. In early 2022, the chef decided to bring back the concept of his former restaurant, Cinnamon Hill, by founding Cinnamon Hill Kitchen. Andy married Rhonda Ralston in 1993 and is the proud dad to three children, Aulston, Dillon and Mary Elle.
