About Jonathan Richardson

After leaving school in 1990 in Barnsley south Yorkshire, I headed off to catering college in Sheffield where I began a progressive career, which took me to the dizzy height’s of “Le Manoir Aux Quat Saisons, Oxford” world acclaimed chef, Raymond Blanc’s flagship hotel, where I soon learned the discipline of the kitchen and the focus and dedication it takes to be at the top of the career ladder.

After a few years of diverse kitchens - hotels, schools, pubs, restaurants, private residences and large scale outside caterers I now focus on private catering to you in your home.

With 25 years of working as a chef, I can pass on this knowledge on the plate!

What they say

  • “ Thank you so much for the amazing lunches delivered for my husband's birthday. We usually go out for a meal, but couldn't this time. It just needed heating up and voila, a first class meal. Also thank you for having a gluten free option (the chocolate brownie was lush). ”

  • “ In this strange and surreal time people are being so kind. Today myself and Neil were treated to a roast dinner and pudding from Jonathan’s catering from some lovely neighbours. It was Delish. Thank you so much Liz and family. We loved it.

    We will be telling everyone about this fantastic service, and we will be ordering for our parents and son and his girlfriend in the near future. ”

  • “ Lovely roast dinner, and the sticky toffee pudding is insane! Would highly recommend. ”

  • “ Hi Jonathan, thanks for a great night and great food. The service on the night was excellent. Thanks again and you will be doing our event it again next year and maybe other events for us ”

    George - Client

  • “ Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making a very special birthday surprise luncheon party into an event that surpassed even my wildest dreams. The food was exquisitely presented and absolutely delicious, you had so many compliments and these guys fine dine all the time in cities around the globe, believe me. The tables looked fabulous and the service second to none. Please extend my thanks to all those who helped you make this happen too. Theyoung ladies did a sterling job yesterday. Even the sun shone down on the occasion ”

    Debs - Client

  • “ Hey Jonathan. Wanted to say a huge thank you for your efforts throughout our wedding planning. You offered so much more than just food on the day. Your advice and experience helped refine the marquee, logistics, bar and so much more and nothing was too much trouble. Stressful time as it is, having suppliers like yourself who seemingly nothing is too much trouble is a god send ”

    Dan - Client

  • “ Jonathan thank you so much for everything it was a great success on all levels ”

    Kirsty - Client
  • “ The meal you prepared for us was absolutely delicious. Each course was so beautifully plated up and made your mouth water. The Salmon was delicious and just that bit different with the beetroot. The fillet was mouthwatering, cooked to perfection and the vegetables so elegant but so tasty. The puddings were a triumph with everyone having their favourites ”

    Joey and Paul - Client

  • “ Jonathan, to you and to your team for such a lovely evening - fab food and great service. You really helped make the event memorable. It was terrific!”
