Tim Anderson is a freelance chef, food writer, and consultant based in London. Tim’s cooking is primarily informed by his American heritage and his love for regional Japanese food, but it also draws on a personal history of worldwide culinary tourism and a keen interest in food science and modernist cuisine. Millions watched Tim emerge victorious on BBC1’s MasterChef in 2011, and he has since enjoyed an exciting career in the world of food. Working as a freelance chef and consultant, he has had the pleasure and privilege of working for a diverse range of clients including Google, Unilever, BrewDog, Oral-B, Citroën, Twinings, KitchenAid, and the Japanese National Tourism Organization. Currently, he is spending most of his time cooking in various venues at his pop-up southern Japanese restaurant, Nanban, while looking for permanent premises. His first cookery book, Nanban: Japanese Soul Food, is due out from Square Peg in September 2014.
