FABULOUS FOOD and MEMORABLE EVENTS since 1994

Officially founded by Julie Whales (then Abbs) in April 1994, Julie Abbs Catering delighted a broad range of clients with sumptuous and decadent home-cooked food for Weddings, Drinks Parties, Private Dining and Shoot Lunches.

Now under the direction of her son Tristram, the passion for excellent flavour, home-cooked food and event decadence hasn’t faded in over 20 years. Our skills refined, our team bigger and our expectations set even higher; our aim is to work with our clients to create truly exceptional events and memorable culinary experiences to cherish for a lifetime.

Nowhere is this testament more fitting than on your Wedding Day. Catering throughout Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambridgeshire we can offer a truly bespoke service, tailored to your exact needs.

Aside from Weddings, we are proud to cater for some of the regions most prestigious businesses and organisations. We have been honoured in supporting various charities such as the EACH, Big C, East Anglia Air Ambulance with charity balls, drinks parties & audiences across the counties. We have also had the pleasure in working with the EDP and Archant on their Norfolk Food & Drink Awards, Business Awards & Tourism Awards.

We have also been privileged enough to work alongside Houghton Hall, involved in some of their world-class art exhibitions, including James Turrell: Lightscape, Richard Long: Earth Sky and Damien Hirst, Colour Space & Outdoor Sculptures. Most recently we also collaborated to host de Gournay, the Chinoiserie design house for the launch of their new signature wallpaper, ‘Houghton’. You can read the Tatler article here.

We continue to strive for excellence in all of our events, providing a cocktail of excellent seasonal and local produce with over 20 years of experience ensuring the very best service throughout the planning process and ultimately, the event itself.
