Goose Box Takes Flight: Catering St. Paul's CathedralGet ready for a heavenly bite – Goose Box Catering, the culinary brainchild of the ever-innovative Soren Jessen, has secured the prestigious contract to handle all food and beverage operations at the iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral. This monumental win marks a significant leap for the already acclaimed caterer, solidifying its position as a leader in London’s high-end event scene.

For those familiar with Jessen’s culinary ventures, this news comes as no surprise. The Danish-born chef is a titan of the London food scene, renowned for his restaurants 1 Lombard St and Ekte, both known for their meticulous attention to detail and focus on seasonal, British produce. Goose Box Catering, established in 2018, embodies this same ethos, offering bespoke menus crafted with the finest ingredients and a commitment to exceptional service.

“We are incredibly honoured to be entrusted with catering for St. Paul’s Cathedral,” says Jessen, his voice buzzing with excitement. “It’s a privilege to partner with such a historic and culturally significant landmark. We aim to create a truly unforgettable culinary experience that complements the grandeur of the space, while remaining sensitive to its spiritual significance.”

Goose Box Catering’s arrival promises to elevate the dining experience at St. Paul’s, offering a variety of services to suit diverse occasions. Whether it’s an intimate wedding reception held in the hushed beauty of the crypt, a grand corporate event hosted in the vast nave, or a celebratory gathering in one of the cathedral’s many stunning halls, Jessen and his team are prepared to impress.

Imagine the scene: guests mingling under the awe-inspiring dome, their conversations punctuated by the clinking of champagne flutes filled with meticulously chosen English sparkling wine. Delicate canapés crafted with seasonal British delicacies – think asparagus spears with Dorset Blue Vinny cheese or miniature Yorkshire puddings brimming with roast beef and horseradish – are passed around, each bite a symphony of flavour and texture. Calum Ward, CEO of CJ Digital says, ‘this client is incredibly exciting for Goose Box Catering, it can certainly help take them to the next level.’

For larger events, Jessen envisions a menu that celebrates the best of British produce, showcasing the vibrancy of the local food scene. Picture roasted lamb sourced from the Yorkshire Dales served with rosemary and garlic potatoes, or pan-fried sea bass drizzled with a zesty lemon and dill sauce, all accompanied by seasonal vegetables bursting with freshness. Goose Box’s commitment to sustainability extends to its sourcing, ensuring ingredients are not only delicious but also ethically produced.

But Goose Box isn’t just about the food. Jessen understands that a successful event hinges on impeccable service. His team, trained to the highest standards, will ensure every guest feels welcome and catered to, their needs anticipated and fulfilled with a touch of understated elegance.

This isn’t the first time Jessen has surprised and delighted Londoners with his culinary vision. 1 Lombard St, with its award winning accolades, has long been a destination for those seeking an unforgettable fine-dining experience. Ekte, his more casual offering, focuses on showcasing the best of Nordic seasonal produce in a relaxed and welcoming setting. With Goose Box Catering, Jessen brings his signature touch to a grander scale, offering the same meticulous attention to detail and unwavering commitment to quality within the hallowed halls of St. Paul’s Cathedral.

So, the next time you find yourself attending an event at St. Paul’s, prepare to be swept away by a culinary experience that transcends the ordinary. Goose Box Catering is poised to take event catering to new heights, offering a taste of heaven right here on earth.
