About me

I'm Jelena and the proud owner of an exciting new venture -
- a London based Catering Company
THE ORIGINAL MENU
So while I COOK
you can come EAT and EXPLORE
Originally from Latvia and living in London with my beautiful family. I quit my job in Global Marketing for a career in food.
Why food?
I've eaten my way around many cities and countries through my love of traveling. There's an excitement and enjoyment in eating new foods and cuisines, but also in absorbing new techniques.

I love to get the best of all the beautiful ingredients available to us. I've put together these skills to create new taste sensations to offer my clients.
