About the Table of Zekki

Tim Zekki is a chef and foodie. Tim has spent many years as a chef in Italian restaurants, and later specialising in tapas and mediterranean food, with a particular interest in the food of his homeland, Cyprus.

In December 2007 Tim set up a deli in South West London. Within seven months customers had voted Tim onto the shortlist of Gary Rhodes’ Local Food Hero 2008 on TV. Tim was one of the 5 London finalists.

In 2010 Tim opened a second deli in Twickenham’s picturesque Church Street. At the end of 2011 Tim sold both deli businesses in order to concentrate on what he loves best – cooking.

In 2013 Tim opened a pop up restaurant, The Lop Eared Pig in an old tractor barn in a farm in Buckinghamshire, and guest cheffed at the successful pop up, Temperance in the old town of Chesham. He’s now popping up in several locations in the area with his new pop up restaurant,  Duende, and outside catering for parties and events.
