Qualifying in 1984 at Cornwall College, Tim Carr studied general catering before moving to London when he was 18. From here, Tim worked for The RAF club in Piccadilly under Gibraltar Head Chef Lionel Artisani for a couple of years.​​ He then moved on to work for De Beers Diamonds in the city of London as a Sous Chef. ​​

Tim married and went on to have a small family before deciding to change career and joined the Prison Service, which he stayed in for 13 years. During this time he set up an outside catering company in Cambridgeshire, which he ran along side his prison service career. At this time, Tim focused on doing buffets and cricket teas, with the odd delicious BBQ thrown in for good measure.

No Tougher Gig Than A Prison!

Tim left the prison service and relaunched his cheffing path as a Head Chef in a small hotel in Cambridgeshire, from there he decided to push himself and applied for a position as an Executive Chef with Marriott Hotels, this he got and led a team of 14 chefs.

The hotel launched a fine dining menu with Tim at the helm, he stayed with Marriott for 2 years before moving into contract catering with ESS (compass group). His role was to look after 5 kitchens across 2 RAF bases. This included summer balls for 1000 people, fine dining in the Officer's Mess, and menu creation for the other units.

Tim also set up and ran a street food trailer called Tim's Kitchen, which was an exciting mix of burgers and slow pulled pork. After being made redundant in July 2016 and having worked for various agencies in and around Nottingham, Tim was welcomed with open arms back onto their books, giving him the kick start he needed to go it alone!
