Founded in 2013 by Lucy Carr-Ellison and Jemima Jones, Tart London began as a catering business for shoots to feed some of the most influential names in the fashion industry including Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Cara Delevingne, Gisele Bundchen and Eddie Redmayne. In February 2016, Lucy and Jemima were made regular food columnists for London’s Evening Standard Magazine, published weekly. April 2018 will see the release of their first cookbook, published by Penguin.
Unrivalled, the Tart London team has become the most sought-after and trusted choice caterers, counting Mert and Marcus, British, American and Paris Vogue, Love Magazine, Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent, Mulberry and Stella McCartney among their loyal clients.
Using seasonal ingredients and sustainably sourced produce from local farms, Tart London is unique in all aspects of their approach. Working with each individual client on a specialized, tailor-made menu, Lucy and Jemima bring passion and excitement to their work, making everything on location using fresh ingredients. This is healthy food, but not slavishly so; it is both delicious and fun, as well as beautifully presented, with great attention to colour and variety.
The pair met whilst living in New York (working on the other side of the camera in roles including fashion photography, production and modelling) and bonded over their mutual enthusiasm and love for hearty, authentic food. They are constantly discovering ingredients and creating new recipes. Both Lucy and Jemima share a love of travel, citing international trips as well as British towns and local farms, as a source of inspiration for their beautiful and vibrant dishes.
