J and J Kitchen are a Harrogate based outside catering business, established two years ago. We work from home and are proud to have been awarded 5 stars for the national “scores on the doors” system of food safety. We have many years experience in the hospitality industry.
We provide catering services for both private events, including birthday parties, weddings, christenings and funerals, and for businesses, including working lunches, special events, launches and promotions.
Apart from our lovely home made food, what sets us apart from other outside catering services is that we can use our extensive experience to help manage your event on the day, freeing you to enjoy your guests and reduce any stress you may be feeling.

Fresh Crudités With Dips
We know how important your event is to you and we will always do our best to give you perfect, friendly and efficient service every time.
Once you have let us know your requirements and chosen your menu, you will have nothing else to worry about; we will keep you informed in a timely manner to reassure you that all is well.
J and J Kitchen have created classic and contemporary menus to choose from; we provide canapés, finger and fork buffets, salads, sandwiches, desserts and cakes.
Almost all of our dishes are homemade in our own kitchen from the very beginning to the very end, ensuring freshness, purity of ingredients and good quality.
The very few items that are bought in are carefully selected for quality and freshness
We met prior to my family reunion event to iron out the finer details but Jane had already supplied so much information and options that I knew exactly what we were going for before she even came round. This gave me so much comfort as organising any event can be a stressful and time consuming project.

J&J Kitchen provided outside catering services to us for twelve people during a residential training course held between 24 & 26 June 2015. Two, two-course evening meals and a range of sweet and savoury food provided for lunchtime all received excellent feedback from those attending the course.

It's been a while, I know, since I blogged. There's no excuse, except being busy and tired just at the moment when I ought to be blogging.
But anyway, here I am....!!! I have had another good summer of events to cater for with the usual mix of celebrations, weddings, birthday parties, funeral teas and buffets, plus some working lunches from time to time. I am getting a lot of my bookings from word of mouth now - thank you so much to all my past clients who have been kind enough to do this.
All my events have been really enjoyable and my small team of helpers are getting ever more proficient and capable, which is great and I am eternally grateful to them.
What I cannot ask my lovely helpers to do however (as it would be way, way beyond the call of duty!!!) is remake cakes at the eleventh hour. Rarely does this happen, thankfully, but when it does it is down to me to get baking again, even if it is late in the evening. I never, ever regret it, if it is called for; I couldn't live with my conscience if I provided food I wasn't totally happy with, even though it is so frustrating to have to start again. One evening last week I found myself teetering on the edge of dissatisfaction with some cakes I had made - shall I or shan't I? Of course I should - off I went to the supermarket, out came the baking equipment and into the oven went cakes no 2. My husband wisely did not question me when he saw the process being repeated!!! But I was so happy with my decision, out came two beautiful new cakes and a happy caterer loaded up the following morning and set off to the venue!
By the way, this isn't a photo of the doomed cakes or the sparkling new ones - it's a honey and fig cake I was trying out - delicious!
