Tim Maddams

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.

So sorry I meant to leave a review ages ago! I really enjoyed the Tapas and Tails with the Tuscan chicken liver pate on 12/6 and will be making it again this weekend. I also intend to pick some more elderflowers before they all go! I would like to take part in another class in the future but in the meantime, I wish you best wishes with all your classes. Thank you!

All went very well, really enjoyed the experience. Great recipe - as with the chicken livers recipe, I will definitely use again.

It was great - the sound quality was much better than last week. Good fun and Tim, as always, was very entertaining and made everyone feel welcome and included. Such a great way to round off a week (although not sure what one of those is at the moment!) ...
