What I Do
“Jessica’s creations are delectably inventive and deliciously tasty….once you’ve tasted them we can guarantee you’ll be a devotee” (OK Magazine)
Brighton Bakes, launched almost 10 years ago, is my bespoke baking and catering service. I like nothing more than coming to a client’s home or venue, and giving them a taste of Brighton, a taste of my home kitchen.
My first cookbook Brighton Bakes, is described by the Guardian as a “luscious compendium“ and Olive magazine as “a colourful pick me up in cookbook form”. Read more national reviews here, and for more info about the book click here.
I enjoy food styling for catalogue shoots, and have produced the edibles for the last three Steamer Trading Summer and Winter catalogues. I’m a recommended caterer for a number of wedding and hospitality venues in Brighton such as The Plotting Parlour, Fabrica, The Basement and the Brunswick Square Hotel. I work closely with the 1930s tea salon Metrodeco and accommodation providers Beatnik Productions on their bookings and events.
I’m a trusted personal chef to celebrities and event organisers alike, and enjoy demonstrating at food festivals up and down the country. Read more about me here.
I love the idea of juxtaposing history and a fresh modern attitude, and I always try to do this with my food.
