Consider yourself a foodie? Want an epic catering team to feed your guests the feast of their life? I think you’re going to love Bear Claw Catering. Founder Jessica is not just experienced at working amongst some of the most well known chefs, she is also Cordon Bleu trained, and will take a vested interest in your big day, offering her knowledge at every point you need it. And just wait ’til you see the food… I’m dreaming about it. “I adore cooking and eating food, hosting celebrations, decorating tablescape’s and creating formal feasts, it’s what I do best, along with the incredible Bear Claw team” Jessica De Jong, Bear Claw Catering’s Founder Bear Claw was set up by Jessica De Jong in 2015. Having completed her Cordon Bleu training, Jessica moved to the capital, and became involved in larger events, leading her to work alongside the likes of Jamie Oliver, Michele Roux Jr and Raymond Blanc at the well known Taste of London festivals. This gave her the inspiration she needed to start Bear Claw Catering.
