Jess Hayden Mattheus is the Founder and Head Chef of Hearth & Table, a Brooklyn-based catering company, dedicated to using locally sourced and seasonal provisions. Jess’s passion towards food, and the act of breaking bread comes from her youth. The greatest gift her parents gave her was growing up in a bilingual and bi-cultural home where life revolved around the kitchen table.
Her inspiration for her catering company, Hearth & Table, is to bring us, as a culture and a society back to the table. To Jess a table is a landmark for family and friends to gather, to share food and experiences. The symbol of the table is a place where we create dialogue, discussion and most importantly a place where we can create memories and laughter. Everyone understands the concept of breaking bread, her hope is that Hearth & Table will help everyone experience it.
As a boutique Brooklyn-based catering company, Hearth & Table is dedicated to using locally sourced provisions. Through our signature cocktails, our creative appetizers, and satisfying rustic entrees we deliver innovative, indulgent cooking for you and your guests with the guarantee of both abundance and enjoyment. Our commitment is to “Your Vision” whether you are hosting a cocktail party for fifty, a corporate event for 200, an intimate sit-down dinner or feeding your employees a nourishing lunch, we will create an experience that matches your concept. Using seasonal menus inspired by the Mediterranean waters as well as the coasts of Latin America, we promise a truly special, intimate dining occasion you will never forget.
