Tim counts his main influences as his American heritage along with his love for regional Japanese cooking, but a passion for food science and modernist cuisine creeps in there too. A rather eclectic mix, but somehow it just works.

Since winning in 2011, Tim has carved out his dream career in food, working as a freelance chef, food writer and consultant. This varied role has seen him work with the likes of big brands, Google and Unilever, as well as hosting stages at food festivals and events throughout the country. He is also a regular presenter on Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube and Drinks Tube, as well as a staple of the Radio 4 food panel show The Kitchen Cabinet.

But Tim’s proudest moment has to be the launch of his first cookery book Nanban: Japanese Soul Food and the opening of his acclaimed restaurant of the same name, in the heart of Brixton.
