Jo's Mission Statement

"Truly great food needs total commitment, both to the quality of the ingredients and the way in which it is prepared, and I have that commitment. I am passionate about what I do and how I do it, about the freshness and seasonality of locally sourced produce, and about giving clients lots of choice that is affordable and value for money.

I chose the name for my business after a guest in my house said: 'There's no better place to be than Jo's Kitchen when you want great food'. That seemed like a good place for me to start, and I would like to offer everyone the chance to enjoy the quality and variety of the cooking that takes place in my own kitchen."

Jo's Kitchen Pop-up restaurants offer the same great food and high values as Jo provides in all her private catering. Look out for a pop-up near you!

What better way is there to mark an occasion than by sharing food and drink with family, friends or business associates? If you are entertaining you want to spend as much time with your guests as possible, so whatever the occasion, Jo's Kitchen can offer you a client lunch that's worth talking about, a splendid buffet for a party, a delicious dinner to wow your friends, or any special occasion that will be memorable for the creativity of the menu.

  • Menus tailored to suit each client's requirements from casual to formal
  • Jo and her clients plan all the details together from a wide range of dishes
  • Choice, freshness and flexibility are the starting point of every occasion
  • Cookery lessons on demand adapted to suit any age group

    "A huge part of our magical and perfect wedding day was down to Jo, her team and the food. So many guests were blown away saying it was the best wedding food ever. Jo listened to exactly what we wanted – asking what our favourite foods were, and working them into an eclectic menu that wowed every step of the way, from canapes to dessert. Nothing was too much trouble, and every detail was taken care of. We honestly couldn’t recommend Jo and her team enough. Thank you for playing such a huge part in our magical wedding."

    Our clients have included high profile organisations, charities and individuals, and the catering has always proved successful and has drawn praise from them.

    I would highly recommend J Lawrence for her originality, attention to detail, and the delicious food she prepares."

    "Jo and her team catered for our daughters christening weekend and what a feast we had! It was all delicious.  Jo swept into our kitchen and with minimal fuss produced a formal dinner completed with canapés for 20 and a buffet lunch the following day.  It was such a treat to not have to think about cooking and really enjoy the event.  They even tided up and left the kitchen sparkling. The food really was fantastic.  One guest declared they were the best canapés she had ever eaten and another still talks about Jo's coronation chicken.  Jo seemed to think of everything and the food catered for all ages.  The children couldn't get enough of the buttermilk chicken and sticky sausages.  Can't recommend her more highly and will definitely be using Jo's Kitchen again."

    "Hi Jo... First of all thank you so much for the fabulous food.... Looking back to the taster evening everything you said was delivered to the exact same high standard and we both were so impressed. It takes great skill to deliver such high quality when dealing with large numbers and this was noticed by both of us and the guests.

    Every single person we spoke to was very impressed and one of my ushers who married last year said the beef was so good they wish they had used you to cater for them. Hope your well."

    "Amazing, amazing, amazing!! Couldn't have wished for anything more! Thank you so much for making our wedding perfect.

Look forward to eating you food again one day! "
