THE PHAT ON THE SKINNY SQUAD.

 
  LANNY “MEXICUTIONER” LANCARTE   Executive Tastemaker  The brain behind Righteous Foods came from this guy, but this place wasn’t opened with huge big brains, it was opened with teamwork and enough passion to fill a cannoli. He is a cook by trade and in his spare time he likes to enter as many bike races as possible. He has an unbelievable losing streak that he hopes to keep in tact. His real passion involves sliding down snow covered mountains strapped into a plank as well as beating his wife at every sport that they engage in.

  AMBER "GET SHIT DONE" SCHMITT   Empowered for our People  Amber arrived at Righteous with a bang requesting a meeting with Lanny and then explaining what her new position would be and how she was going to do it.  So here it is - she runs our social media, community relations, catering and drop off services, and anything else she can get her organic hands on.  Amber is also our resident fitness guru (don't tell Melissa that) so you might see her running, practicing yoga, spinning, strength training or kicking your ass on the jiu jitsu mat.  Amber is here for a short bit before pursuing her masters degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Southern California.

  SALVADOR “MUCHO PELIGROSO” PATLAN   Captain Cook  Chava worked his way up the ladder at Lanny’s Alta Cocina in all nine years of its existence and he and Lanny communicate via telepathy.  This skill was learned as a result of being side by side for over 15 years and a constant pain in each others ass - and getting shit done, fast.  He can pretty much cook anything.  His left-brain is big.  He can twist and turn any dish or anything for that matter and make into a masterpiece.  During the renovation his attention to detail helped create the planters, shelves and much of the wooden plate ware at Righteous.  If you can break it Chava can fix it, build it, sand it, and send it.  Chava likes to explore the areas mountain bike trails in his spare time, which he claims are ant hills in comparison to his home dirt in Irapuato, Guanajuato.

  SARAH "JUST EAT IT" HENKLE   Health Nut  Sarah graces or dining room with a deep background in nutrition.  She received her bachelors of dietetics at K-State and her postgraduate dietetic internship at University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center.  So when "Sarah Says" things on our social media it has some substance.  Sarah is a force at Righteous and when she speaks SOME people listen but usually people ask her to stop talking.  Also she really likes ice cream and we forgive her for being the wrong kind of purple in the big 12.

  GABRIEL “COOL HAND CUKE” BENJAMIN   Plate Waxer  Since Gabe landed in our kitchen he has made an enormous impact.  His passion for food and the art of the food is unparalleled.  His resume is deep and he could cook or run just about any kitchen but Righteous feels like home to Gabe and we feel like he has always been in our house.  Gabe is taller than Esteban, more fit than Chava and has bigger glasses than Lanny, making us the most balanced kitchen in the West.  Gabe hails from the Texas Gulf Coast and surfing is in his blood, so from time to time he is no where to be found on long weekend.  Hang Ten Surfers and Surfettes.

  ESTEBAN “SOY MEXICANO” PATLAN   Kitchen Assassin  Estirs has worked with Lanny for 15 years and now shows everyone how things get done in the kitchen.  He rolls pasta faster and with more style than any Italian, he makes cheese that will make you want to slap your grandmother, he’s an avid sausage stuffer, he makes love to desserts and can probably find a way to make something off your shoe taste good.  In his spare time he enjoys belting norteno corridos and driving his brother Chava to a different level of crazy.   He too hails from the hills of Irapuato, Guanajuato and the local mountain bike trails do not pose enough challenge for this little man with the BIGGEST personality.
