The party was a big success, Lance was very happy with everything.
The food was delicious and the cocktail bar was a very popular mingle area. The family dining room was a perfect room for it.
Staff were great, very smiley and professional and great at navigating the crowded rooms. Thank you!

I wanted to write to say the biggest ever thank you for everything you did to make my 40th birthday celebrations such a huge success.

The canapés surpassed all my expectations, they were incredible and all the guests have complimented the food in their thank you letters! I’m so pleased we went with the Japanese theme!
In addition to the delicious food - the cocktails were fabulous, the staff were friendly and attentive and everyone remained calm & positive despite the rain!
You guys were amazing to deal with from start to finish - you make a great team! Thank you so so much, I really wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone.

I appreciate this week is a busy one for you...and I’m honestly not expecting a response until you return from your honeymoon - but I have another enquiry which I hoped you could help me with.

I had many comments last night about the excellent food and service, and again this morning. I’ve been mentioning Pure Indulgence and I’ll also send an email to the PTA to tell them what a huge success it was and to recommend you for other parties.

Pure Indulgence were absolutely fantastic catering for my mother's 70th party. During the planning process, they responded to all my queries promptly and made excellent suggestions with regards to the food and drink menu and assisted with the practical elements as well. On the day Jonty and Victoria and their team produced such delicious food with impeccable service throughout, and then tidied up and left everything spick and span. I would not hesitate to recommend them for future events, really fantastic and delicious!

Thank you SO much for the most beautifully presented and tasting lunch yesterday for our anniversary. It really was outstanding and everyone commented on how fantastic it all was.

The sea bream was exquisite and such an original flavour, the beef just melted in your mouth and the pudding was simply to die for!!

All in all an outstanding success!

Thank you so much for your help on Saturday night – the food was excellent, the drinks seemed very popular (can’t remember!) and overall the service was seamless and very unobtrusive – all round perfect.

Thank you for making Saturday evening so perfect. I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received on both the food and waiting staff. The pad thai was particularly popular - I gather people were hovering near the kitchen when you were cooking it to ensure they didn't miss out (unfortunately I wasn't wise to that trick, so didn't get to try it).

There is no reason why you should have been aware of it, but quite a few of our guests work in the hotel, catering and travel industry, including all my family. So, as I'm sure you'll appreciate, they take particular notice of food and service and they had only good things to say.

On a personal note, I cannot tell you how reassuring it was when Victoria arrived, asked me to go through a few things with her, then just took over. At that point, I suddenly began to relax and just look forward to enjoying myself.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and I really hope you get further bookings as a result of Saturday. I'm already trying to think of a reason for another party so that we can use you again! Just to be totally clear, all my feedback is honest and heartfelt; had we had any negative observations, I would have let you know.

I look forward to our paths crossing again.

Thank you for last week - the quality of the canapés, the professionalism (and warmth) of the service exceeded all expectations, and unquestionably you were was one of the highlights of the evening given the numerous compliments we've since received.
I have no doubt I'll be in touch later this year, perhaps my company's Summer or Christmas party.

Good morning Victoria,

It was lovely to meet you both yesterday and please give our huge thanks to the chefs - everyone was raving about the food apparently, so very well done.

I’m sure that tonight will be an equal triumph!

I look forward to seeing you later.

Kind regards,

Rachel

I really can't thank you and Victoria enough. As I'm sure you were made aware (as everyone commented!), the food was all absolutely delicious - possibly the best-pulled pork I've ever had. (Am kicking myself I forgot to bring some with me to work for lunch!)
Victoria was also incredible - so professional, knew exactly what she was doing (far more than me!) and a complete pleasure to have around.
And you both coped incredibly well in a small space with children running around your ankles!
Having you both there totally transformed the day for me and my husband - we were able to really enjoy it ourselves rather than having to worry about whether people were being looked after and having a nice time.
So thank you so, so much - I certainly hope to use you again and will be recommending!
With huge thanks,
Claudia

We were looking to host a thank you event for 25 staff, and wanted something that was a bit different from the usual rolls and sandwiches. We also wanted food that represented the diversity of culture that makes up our workforce. Jonty and his team, put together a considered, and exciting variety of dishes. Food arrived on time, and portion size and quality was excellent. A particular highlight was the chocolate brownie with salted pistachio cream. Prices were extremely competitive, and I would have no hesitation in using Pure Indulgence catering again in the future

Pure Indulgence always go the extra mile by taking the time to cook their food on-site using the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Everyone loves the food and service every time and is always surprised by the innovative menus and attention to detail. Highly recommend them!

Pure Indulgence recently assisted us with the catering for a large party (small festival!) in Sussex, for 250 people. Jonty took time to fully understand our brief, using his experience and skill to tailor the ingredients and presentation to our specific demands. He even set up a tasting session prior to the event to sample various options, giving us full confidence in what was to be masterfully created on the night itself. Our guests were extremely grateful for such a show-stopping performance, which provided more than enough fuel for an evening full of great memories.
Thanks Jonty!

When you invite almost 30 people for an event in your house you definitely need extra help. Even less than this is a lot of work and in the end of the day if you do all by yourself you don't have fun at all. My husband and I moved to London 1 year ago and we really like to have people around. We're having a baby now and we hired Pure Indulgence for our baby shower. I'm a pastry chef so high quality ingredients and service is priority here. We decided for the finger foods/canapes cause we wanted something more relaxed for family and friends. Chef Jonty gave us some options and we loved every single thing. The food and presentation makes a huge difference, and they definitely delivered that. Service was great, the girls were very polite, prompt and helpful. I didn't have to climb upstairs to leave the coats and gifts...
So if you want to have something unique, with good quality and great service at home you just cantact them and they will take care of your event.
Thank you and see you guys soon!

Organised a party for my husband and it couldn't have gone better. The food was excellent and Jonty was wonderfully efficient and lovely to have around. The staff too were extremely friendly and well presented. I'd use him again without a doubt; still thinking about those arancini balls! Thank you Pure Indulgence!

Work history from Pure Indulgence Catering

Work History

Founder and Head Chef

Pure Indulgence Catering

From 2009 to present.

Jonty Franks founded Pure Indulgence Catering in 2009 after training at Leith's and then working alongside the UK's top chefs at London restaurants. His own distinctive style has been inspired by his world travels, travelling the globe for culinary inspiration. Through his epicurean escapades - throughout Scandinavia, the Americas, Central and Southeast Asia and the Far East - Jonty has learned how to create elegant dishes that reveal new flavours with every mouthful. Whilst his distant travels provide him with fresh ideas, they all exist within the context of his upbringing in Surrey and his longstanding affinities for familiar nearby favourites - Scottish seafood, French produce and Italian herbs. He also finds inspiration from the palates of his clients and eagerly composes menus based on their preferences. Always mindful of sustainability, Jonty endeavours to use locally sourced and seasonal produce whenever possible and over the years has built strong relationships with trusted suppliers, thus ensuring the quality and provenance of his food. Jonty’s pleasure and passion relies upon sharing what he has learned with others and he relishes every opportunity to do so, whatever the occasion or event. Accompanied by his team of passionate, highly trained Chefs and waiting staff, Jonty always delivers exceptional service and an unforgettable catering experience.

Projects

POP UP RESTAURANT - FISH FOR THE FUTURE - HIGHLIGHT SUSAINABLE FISHING

Together with Moxon’s Fishmonger in London we created a five course menu, which included Artic char from Dorset, a sweet freshwater fish cooked in a native American style on seasoned wood, Colchester rock oysters shucked and served three ways, a deeply flavourful crustacean bisque, and a kelp infused palate cleanser.

ACTION AGAINST HUNGER - CHARITY POP UP - "WASTE NOT, WANT NOT"

Waste Not, Want Not' was an evening celebrating fresh, underused produce. Supporting the charity Action Against Hunger www.actionagainsthunger.org.uk. Myself and Jane Montgomery created a feast of culinary delights. We worked together to put a modern twist on hidden British produce which are rarely used today. Guests were treated to a five course feast, taking them on a journey of exquisite dishes, gaining valuable knowledge on how to utilise these ingredients in their own kitchens.

POP UP RESTAURANT - PUTNEY BRIDGE - ROMEO & JULIET

A candlelit intimate pop up set up under the arches of Putney Bridge. 9 courses were inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet
