Holland-Toll joined Lark Creek as executive chef in August 2007. She previously worked under Jan Birnbaum at the now-defunct Catahoula in Calistoga, and in S.F. at Fifth Floor and Acme Chophouse. The chef told SFoodie by email that it would take a little time for Ducca's menu to reflect her influence. In late April, Corbo announced his intentions to leave Ducca, reportedly for an unnamed restaurant set to open in the fall.
