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.
The company name derives from Jessica’s love for and heritage of Seattle Washington USA, where Jessica enjoyed Pike Place market abundance of seasonal produce, and support of local small businesses.

“To Jessica and Team Bear Claw
Thank you so much for the work you put into the lead up and the delivery of everything involved in our wedding day. It was truly exceptional in every sense and we, along with our guests, were looked after incredibly well throughout the entire day. So many of our guests commented on how blown away they were by the catering- both the taste and the presentation. Our meal was one of my favourite parts of the day, and all of your team worked so hard to make it perfect for us. I could go on and on, but suffice to say the hugest amount of thanks and appreciation from Matt and myself. Having such a key part of the day exceed our expectations is truly something we will remember long into the future”
