Tim Maddams

Vale House Kitchen are delighted to have Tim teaching a wide variety of courses covering game, butchery, fish and vegetarian cookery.
Tim is a chef, food writer and cookery teacher living in the south west of England.
Food is ‘in the blood’ as some say, as Tim’s grandfather was a master butcher and restaurateur. His parents followed suit, running various successful catering ventures during Tim’s childhood in Wiltshire. There, he also spent a lot of time on his aunt and uncle’s farm, gleaning a close understanding of farming and fostering a love of the great British countryside, wild food and quality produce which would form the cornerstone of his culinary ethos and later, his career.
