The Seven Sins of Tim Stamp

Head Chef, Ye Olde Bell
Tim Stamp
Tim Stamp is Head Chef at Ye Olde Bell Hotel and Spa, located in the village of Barnby Moor on the borders of Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

He oversees the AA Rosette Restaurant Bar 1650, which offers elegant, refined dining and St Leger Bistro-by-the-Bar, which features more traditional dishes served with a modern twist.

Chef Stamp had a passion for cooking from an early age and never had any doubt what job he wanted to do. After working as a pot washer when he was a teenager he decided he wanted to move into the kitchen as a chef.

He started a catering apprenticeship scheme at a hotel in Stafford and after completing this he then had a stint at The Garth Hotel before moving to Ardencote Manor in Warwickshire, where he worked for two years. He then moved to the prestigious Peacock at Rowsley where he honed his skills before joining Ye Olde Bell.
 
Wrath - What makes you angry about the hospitality industry?
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
Although I love my job, and wouldn’t want to do anything else, the long hours make it difficult. I have a young son and it’s hard being away from my baby boy as much as I am.
 
Greed - If all your food fantasies came true what would be on your Plate?
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
Slow braised lamb, roasted carrots, maple cured bacon, goats cheese.
 
Sloth - What do you do to unwind?
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
After a long day in the kitchen I love watching late night telly followed by a nice relaxing bath.
 
Pride - What are you most proud of?
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
I am constantly pushing myself professionally and there’s so much I want to achieve. But honestly nothing has made me prouder than the day my little boy was born. He continues to make me proud every day.
 
Lust - Is there anything that you are still lusting to achieve?
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
I am constantly pushing myself and I don’t think any chef should rest on their laurels. I always want to make sure I’m succeeding at the highest level of culinary excellence so that’s what I push to achieve.
 
Envy - who are you most envious of?
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
I don’t feel much envy towards people. I have people I admire, and seeing what they have achieved makes me aspire to achieve that for myself too.
 
Gluttony - have you ever over indulged? 
Tim Stamp Seven Sins
Every Friday night on warm chocolate brownies – yum!
