Tim Bartleet runs his own catering company, Blue Egg Catering from his home in Smarden, Kent. He set up his business in 2014 after a 30-year career in the hospitality industry. Companies he has worked for include The Savoy Group, Langans Group, Rules, The Ark and Ampersand. His last role was as General Manager at the Naval and Military Club in St James’ for Ampersand. He also managed the catering contract at the Honourable Artillery Company in the City of London.
Tim attended the Champagne Academy Course in 1998. The most memorable part of the Course for him was a vertical tasting in the tasting lab of Taittinger and being asked his opinion of three different vintages of Comte de Champagne. The week was amazing and seeing this year’s candidates out in Reims, he was reminded just how fortunate we all are.
His father Giles Bartleet was Chairman in 1977 so this is the first son to follow on in the chair. One of his earliest memories is of his parents going off to Champagne Academy events and having a wonderful time.
