About JP Dining
My name is Elliot Johnson-Paul, I am a young passionate chef with a hunger and desire for success at the highest level. Growing up I loved to help my mum as and when I could in the kitchen. This soon turned into a passion to become a Chef with the drive to develop and refine my skills to the uppermost conceivable level.
I gained a job at the prestigious Petersham Hotel at the age of 15, this provided me with a taste of what was to come. Having worked every possible hour at the hotel I could, I learnt of the opportunity to try to win a scholarship at Bournemouth and Poole College on the Specialised Chef Scholarship programme. As it happens I won the last place.
This presented me with the opportunity to learn my trade at Intercontinental Hotel on Park Lane. Having spent a combined 3 years plying my trade at the hotel and learning my skills at college I graduated with a distinction in both cookery and pastry. I felt the time was right for my next challenge, this brought me the doorway of Claridges. Having really learnt how to cook at the highest level I left to pursue a slightly different path. My next decision led me to taking the plunge and branching out on my own, setting up my business- JP Dining.
Running my own business has opened many a door and presented me with fabulous opportunities to showcase my skills and passion, cooking for the likes of David Cameron, Theresa May, the owners of Taittinger and famous footballer John Terry. My business provides restaurant quality food eaten within the comfort of your home and my services range from small dinner parties 8 in number, to sit down wedding breakfasts and everything in between. At JP Dining we thrive on providing you a services that will leave a lasting imprint on your taste buds.
People who love to eat good food and entertain. Sit back relax and enjoy being a guest in your own home.
A really happy occasion with great food
The menu suggested by Elliot for our 50th wedding anniversary family party (20 adults, 10 children and 2 babies) was perfect. The food on the day was delicious - carefully prepared and thoughtfully served. Everyone commented on the high quality of the cooking and the helpful attentive service provided by the whole team. Altogether a happy and most enjoyable occasion.
JP Dinning catered our company celebration party for about 500 guests. We requested a BBQ with no processed meats. JP dinning prepared fresh food at the venue, Elliot catered for all the necessary dietary requirements. Not only was the food delicious and exactly what we wanted, Elliot and his team were extremely professional and courteous to our guests. They smiled and went the extra mile, which made our guests feel even better about the time they were having at our event. Their clean-up was perfection, JP dining exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use them again in the future! They are great value and we definitely got everything we paid for along with great lasting memories of our celebration event. Elliot was fantastic
Elliot made organising a party a real joy.
Elliot was a pleasure to work with, many excellent ideas and his menu was executed with professionalism. His team was also very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend using Elliot for your next event.
Amazing team, would highly recommend!
PERFECT! Elliot was a dream to work with, made the process of planning my Mums birthday party at our home so easy. We discussed all details prior to our event and always felt that Elliot understood our flavours & tastes exactly. On the day, Elliot & his team took time to know us & took care of our guests flawlessly, which made the process so enjoyable & can't thank them enough. They level of detail in their service during the planning as well as on the day matched that of our family perfectly which really put me at ease. Our guests were AMAZED with the food & service, which was the main prioroty for us. Elliot takes the time to make you feel like family & looked after us the same. We'd welcome Elliot & his team into our home in a heartbeat.
Very professional, friendly service.
Elliot and his team - Jack and Sophie - provided a wonderful dinner for 14 for my sister-in-law's 50th birthday. Elliot is incredibly easy to work with, very well-organised, and clearly talented. They pitched service perfectly, and were professional, friendly, engaged and unobtrusive. As for the food - it was genuinely top restaurant quality. We are all still discussing which canapé was the most fantastic - they were all so good we still haven't reached a consensus! I would recommend JP catering without reservation, and would most certainly use them again myself.
Fantastic Service and Food
We shall definitely use this service again and we would highly recommend JP Dining!!
Premier Service. Excellent food.
A great success. The service and food was of excellent standard
Brilliant organization. All guests were very well looked after.
Five Stars from start to finish.
From Elliot's initial telephone call, to us waving him off at the end of a very successful evening - the whole process could not have been smoother. We were celebrating my husband's birthday with a sit down meal for 12 and the food could not have received higher praise from our friends. From the delicious canapés to the steaks all individually cooked to everyone's liking to the assiette of desserts. Elliot even made an individual meal for my gluten free friend. Elliot and his team were simply superb and we are already thinking about our next event with him.
Really excellent service - went over & above.
Elliott and his team were super professional from the moment they arrived and we instantly relaxed knowing the evening was safely in their hands. I think for the first time ever, we were actually able to enjoy a party for a large number of guests at our house. Elliott and his team went well above the call of duty in every respect. They anticipated our needs at every turn and everything happened smoothly while we were left free to mingle with our guests. We received many many compliments on the food and the service was polished and professional from the set up to the clear up.
We also enjoyed the leftovers they carefully packed in our fridge; they tasted even better the next day ;)
We would highly recommend these caterers.
We were organising a corporate event at our property so we needed professional caterers that worked to precision timing. I can say that Elliot and his team exceeded expectations. They are a very polite, well organised and well mannered bunch who helped make the night go smoothly. Elliot's communication with us before, during and after the event was exceptional. We all enjoyed ourselves and cannot thank Elliot and his team enough for his professional service throughout the night!
