We are thrilled to introduce to you CVC’s newest Executive Chef, Tim Goddu. Tim comes to us after many years of experience in all aspects of the kitchen. Most recently, Tim served as the Executive Sous Chef at Rudy’s of the Cape in Cape Elizabeth, ME. Tim’s love for cooking sort of “fell into his lap” in 2000. After snagging a job as a dishwasher at a banquet hall in Holyoke, MA, Tim instantly fell in love with the excitement of the kitchen. After just five months washing dishes, he mustered up the courage to speak to the Executive Chef, asking to work in another part of the kitchen. He was quickly given a prep cook job, and knew that this was what he wanted to do for his career. Over the next several years, he was given the opportunity to work with a number of amazing chefs, working his way up the culinary ladder.
Following high school, Tim attended culinary school at Newbury College in Brookline, MA. He graduated in May of 2009 and quickly jumped into the culinary world. Tim spent time on the line cooking at The Country Club in Brookline and at Sel de La Terre in Boston. He then spent some time at Fenway Park, working at the State Street Pavilion, the Royal Rooters Club (a private club for Red Sox season ticket holders), and as Sous Chef on the Budweiser Roof Deck, a favorite of fans attending home games.
While working at Fenway Park, and various other jobs, Tim had the pleasure of cooking for numerous people: David Ortiz, Tim Wakefield, Jason Varitek, Mike Lowell, Dustin Pedroia, Jon Lester, Terry Francona, Robert Craft, Jason Biggs, Anna Kendrick, Mark and Donny Wahlberg, and so many more.
On becoming a part of our team, Tim said, “CVC has opened up a new level for me. They have given me the opportunity to showcase my talent with my name as well as the title of Executive Chef. I am very grateful and excited to be a part of the team and even more so to see where we can go together. It’s a new challenge that I very much look forward to.”
Tim loves working with the fresh flavors that rotate with the seasons and loves the challenge of “spur of the moment creation.” Generally, he enjoys cooking American-style, but has very strong French and Italian influences.
