Meet Our Chef – 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.

Tim focuses on producing amazing dishes using ethically produced, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients. Over the last 15 years, Tim has worked in a variety of exciting roles across a wide range of restaurants and was the author of The River Cottage Handbook on Game.

Tim has been working on an unusual challenge for chefs, to produce recipes featuring whole or diced pheasant breast that can be made simply, using ingredients likely to be donated to food banks / soup kitchen and day centres by the cooks there. So, no fancy equipment, simple non-complicated recipes that will best present the game in familiar ways to people in need.  If you are a chef and would like to donate your recipe please contact us on HERE.

Please see below for our latest donated recipes all beautifully photographed by James Murphy.
