Burnt Lemon Chefs is led by James Peck.  James began his career as a military chef, serving nine years in the British Army, working in seven different countries. His early intensive training and experience gave him the skills to create delicious and nutritious plates of food in highly pressurised working environments with sometimes limited resources. Military chefs are renowned for their skill, flexibility and creativity. James is no exception – his role saw him cooking for both soldiers and royalty. Since leaving the army James has gone on to lead kitchens working as a Head Chef in award-winning restaurants in both London and Northamptonshire. His accreditations and accolades are broad and include two AA Rosettes.

James was also awarded the title of runner-up in the Carlsberg Northamptonshire Food and Drink awards ‘ Chef of the Year ’ 2017 / 2018 category and was a finalist in the 2018 / 2019 awards.

  • We have decided to go with Burnt Lemon for our wedding breakfast. From the offset Burnt Lemon have provided an incredibly professional and passionate service. We have since decided on a menu and had our taster session, the food was cooked to a very high standard and tasted as good as their photos make out!! We cant wait to have these guys cook at our wedding are sure our guests will share our thoughts on the company.
  • Really fantastic - totally focussed on building the kind of menu we wanted, and then more than delivered against it. Made our event really special, were a pleasure to have around and left the kitchen sparkling! Couldn’t recommend them more highly. Thank you!
  • I cannot recommend Burnt Lemon Catering enough! James came to our home last night and catered for our dinner party of six. The food was to die for! The starter was the perfect opener for the evening with James home made onion Bajis one of my favourites. We then had 42 day aged Beef short rib for main that just melted in your mouth, I can easily say this is the best beef I have ever tasted. Dessert was chocolate heaven with the diy hot chocolate mousse that had everyone excited to tuck in. James presentation was on point and his service was extremely professional. To top the evening off James cleared the tables and tidied up and was off leaving us with a kitchen that you wouldn’t even know he was in. We will be booking Burnt Lemon Catering again very soon and will be recommending them to anyone that is looking for a wonderful evening of fine dining and service.
