Meet The Founders
About Chef Tim
Another product of the prestigious Cornwall Catering College, Tim is very much part of a strong culinary heritage that boasts a reputation for excellent food.
The Cornish peninsula is surrounded by a sea of well-stocked fish and is often associated with great celebrity chefs. Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver, John Torode and Nathan Outlaw have all made their mark on the region.
After graduating in 1984, Tim moved to London and worked for the RAF club in Piccadilly, under the guidance of celebrated, Gibraltar head chef, Lionel Artisani.
Tim progressed to be second in command at De Beers, in the City of London, working as Sous-chef before starting a family and embarking on his outside catering project in Cambridge.
Although Tim was becoming nationally renowned with a reputation for main courses, he focused on buffets and cricket teas, with seasonal, outdoor banquets thrown in to add versatility to his already expanding repertoire of culinary skills.
With an aptitude for handling pressure and busy kitchens, Tim became the Executive Chef at Marriott Hotels. Here he led a team of 14 chefs, covering a multitude of hotels within the chain.
The Marriott chain then launched a marketing campaign consisting of fine dining menus within its hotels. With Tim at the helm, he stayed with Marriott Hotels for a further two years before moving into contract catering with ESS (compass group).
His role as ESS was to preside over 5 kitchens across 2 RAF bases, including summer balls for 1000 people, fine dining in the Officer's Mess, and menu creation for the other units.
Tim has also set up and coordinated a trendy street food trailer called 'Tim's Kitchen' - a mouth-watering mix of burgers and slow pulled pork.
Always aware of emerging tastes and trends in the culinary world, Tim witnessed the evolution of street food whilst working in London. He quickly responded with a revolutionary initiative that eventually gripped the nation.
In July 2016, Tim's reputation followed him to the East Midlands where he would eventually team up with local chef, Craig Floate.
