Chef Tim brings an enormous amount of experience with the farm-to-table culinary philosophy and will be working closely with many of the area farms in Central Maine to build a repertoire of simple cooking that lets the true flavors of every dish shine through.

Some of his early employment has been at renowned establishments such as The Farmington Country Club Farmington, CT. as the Saucier Chef circa 1990, The Whitman House,  Avon, CT. Garde Manger Chef circa 1993. He also mastered his Italian Culinary skills by working for Icon Chef Armando Boccia at Restorante de Armando’s in Hancock, Maine.

Chef Tim excitedly noted, “Every experience has taught me so much and given me so many more unique experiences that I can pass on to all the wonderful people I have the privilege to cook for. I look forward to working with Snow Pond and cooking for all of their amazing guests throughout the year.”

“We are excited to welcome Chef Tim to Snow Pond Center for the Arts. Chef Tim is extremely talented and has an impressive culinary background. We are confident that all our guests will love what he brings to the table,” commented John Wiggin, Snow Pond’s Executive Director.
