About Our Chef:

My name is Terry Coughlan and I am a chef...

   A little about my history. I grew up in Indiana and my father is from Ireland. I met my wife while traveling the country after high school. We currently live in Hillsborough with our two children and have been here the last 15 years.

    My wife grew up on a farm outside rural Kinston NC. I have been trying to learn southern food and traditions by utilizing local products whenever possible. Vivian Howard from the Chef and the Farmer restaurant there has been a major influence in recent years. I organized farm to table events as the Executive Chef at Whole Foods in Durham and Chapel Hill for nine years. More recently I learned whole hog, wood fired, NC BBQ as the Executive Chef at the Pit in Durham and Raleigh. 

   When I heard a local bar in Hillsborough was looking for a Chef to open a food truck downtown it felt like the perfect opportunity. Hillsborough is home and I have always dreamed of giving back to the community some of my culinary vision. Fork in the Roof is quality gastro pub, comfort food with influences from all classic American street food. We are featuring local products whenever possible and developing relationships with farmers and the downtown business community. Come check us out and let us know what you think! 

Sincerely,Chef Terry Coughlan
