Private Chef

Fancy organising a get together for friends or family?

Look no further, SJ catering is here to help.

Private Chef Hire Suffolk.

Whether you have a group of friends around and split the cost, or maybe a family treat, SJ catering can make your day or evening an enjoyable one not to forget. The menu will be decided with yourself from a list of suggestions or you may even have a recipe you would like me to try on your behalf. Once we have chosen the courses, cost per head, venue and date, all you need to do is entertain your guests by being there whilst we cook, serve and clean up, leaving you to relax within in your own surroundings without the need of checking on the oven!!

We can cover most of East Anglia, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex including Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds and  Haverhill. Please give us a call or send us an email to find out if we can cover your location.

Please see our sample menus in the menu tab.
