Fogo Island Inn has named one of its founding Kitchen team members, Timothy Charles, as its new executive chef. Originally from Prospect Village, N.S., Charles moved to Fogo Island in 2012 to assist with opening the inn and developing its culinary program as a sous chef. He has since deepened his knowledge and mastery, contributing through different roles, and he will now lead the kitchen team in his new position as executive chef.

His deep personal interest in Fogo Island — the place, community, and history — as well as his respect for local eating traditions and practices, make Tim well suited to drive the ongoing evolution of Fogo Island Inn’s culinary program,” says a spokesperson for the inn.
