Helpful equipment unboxing, first cook, and review vidoes.

As a former executive chef, Tim helped to nurture Richmond’s fast growing food scene. He racked up a heap of four-star reviews and consequently earned himself the title of Richmond Magazine’s “Best New Chef” in 2011. In 2012, Tim received a nomination from the same publication for “Chef of the Year”.

His culinary career took him from Richmond to Tuscany, and back again. While studying at the prestigious Culinary Institute of Florence Tim learned the finer points of from-scratch pasta and hand-made charcuterie. His time spent at the CIF was offset by a stint moonlighting at the nearby Ristorante Ricchi. This establishment was largely considered one of best restaurants in Florence.
