About Me

I am happiest
Eating british food at a kitchen table while cooking.
Dietary requirements

I'd rather eat: Ethically sourced food
I am a private chef, writer, cookery teacher and presenter living in Devon. I’ve been into food from an early age, spending much of my childhood on the family farm in Wiltshire, gleaning a close understanding of farming and fostering a love of the great British countryside, wild food and quality produce which forms the cornerstone of how I think about food today. Over the course of my career, I’ve had the privilege to work with such culinary luminaries as Fergus Henderson, Alistair Little, Marco Pierre White and Mark Hix, as well as a stint managing VIP catering for the Ferrari F1 team in Europe. A return to my roots saw me lead the team at River Cottage Axminster, where I regularly appeared alongside Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on both the River Cottage series on Channel 4 and the Fish Fight campaign. I continue to indulge my interest in broadcasting with occasional appearances on various foodie shows, such as Channel 4's Sunday Brunch and BBC Food and Drink.

Chef shed seasonal dining

Tim was chatty and a great host, knowing when to leave his guests and knowing when to engage. The food was inventive and tasty, we loved the nibbles served on platters while we enjoyed the sun and champagne! We would recommend this evening, but beware if you visit this venue in the colder months, it is very open and you will need plenty of blankets!

Tim cooked a wonderful meal in truly unique surroundings. Loved the chef's shed (and the pigs liver!).

Tim Maddams was of course a brilliant chef, but also charming and funny. The food was superb, the company fantastic - met lots of great new people - and the surroundings absolutely magical. Special shout-out to Mixology for the stunning cocktails, too!
