Hero Profile » About Jim Rogers
Jim Rogers caught the restaurant bug at age 13, starting as a dishwasher, with aspirations of becoming a restaurant chef. He started at a small bistro in Newburyport, MA in 1980. This inspired the quest for a culinary degree, and eventually led him to work his way up in the restaurant ranks. Jim traveled around the country learning culinary skills and techniques until connecting with Joe Faro at Joseph's Pasta. Jim served as Executive VP Chief & VP of Operations for ten years before Jim and Joe made a move to open Tuscan Kitchen in Salem, New Hampshire where Joe believes the culmination of all of his culinary experiences lie.
