Palmers Culinary Team


Chef Tina Marzolini

Tina Marzolini made her culinary debut at Palmers. Having just graduated from Newbury College in Brookline, Tina joined John in the Palmers kitchen in 1998. Tina was influenced early on by Graham Kerr, TV’S Galloping Gourmet and, with her Italian heritage and passion for sautéing, Tina adds a delicious touch to the menu as well as a steadiness and grace to the kitchen. She has made public appearances over the years at The Taste of Andover and other local charity events.

Chef/Owner John Ingalls

Chef John Ingalls has been cooking since childhood and graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in 1977. He carved out his place in Boston’s restaurant scene back in the 80’s when after stints in the city and on Marthas Vineyard, he established Palmers Restaurant on the waterfront in Swampscott in 1988. In 1995 the restaurant moved to its current 18 Elm Street location in Andover and the rest is history.
