About Tim Nugent, Executive Pastry Chef
A graduate of New England Culinary Institute, Tim has both sweet and savory sides when it comes to cooking. His career began in Monterey, California, where he was executive chef of Fresh Cream Restaurant. He eventually headed to San Francisco and landed at Acquerello, where he continued to work on the savory side. Around the same time, he offered to do pastry as a favor to a friend, and the rest is history. From Zuni Café to Campton Place to Café Rouge (with stints at The Wine Spectator and Liberty Café, as well as the opening of Arlequin Café), his sweet creations have earned consistently high praise. Tim has also appeared on Bay Café, a Bay Area cooking show, and taught local cooking classes. He has a passion for seasonal ingredients grown locally, from which he creates truly memorable desserts. Rustic, simple and delicious are always his goals. Tim has been at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel for two years, making his mark with some of the greatest sweets around.
