Ellis Catering has been trading for 15 years. During this time we have catered for over 1500 weddings and hundreds of private functions. These ranged from dinner parties for 10 guests to substantial canapé parties for 500 guests. Head Chef Nicholas Ellis's passion for food began at Boodles Gentlemen's Club in St James, London. Under the guidance of Mr Keith Podmore (Academie Culinaire de France), he studied for 5 years as an apprentice, learning the foundation of his cooking skills. He went on to gain experience in restaurants in Spain and France. On his return he spent 3 years at the Michelin-starred Connaught Hotel, Mayfair under the Executive Head Chef Michel Bourdin (Hon D. Lit OMN CMA). Michel, alongside Albert Roux, was one of the founder members of The Academie Culinaire de France. Nicholas worked his way up from 2nd Commis to Chef de partie, the youngest to do so in the hotel's 100 year history. It was here that he had the opportunity to cook for HM the Queen. He also cooked with some of the best chefs in the world including Joel Robuchon, Pierre Orsi, Gerard Boyet and Phillipe Braun. Nicholas uses his knowledge of high quality cuisine to make your event truly memorable, whether it is a dinner party for four guests or a wedding for a hundred.
