Jesse Kempner Chef

Graduating from Leith's School of Food and Wine in 2016, I am a professionally trained chef, working in private households and restaurants based predominantly in Oxfordshire. I take huge pride in the quality and dignity of the food I create. Everything from the produce to the presentation is.... In an effort to consistently create high quality, great tasting food, seasonality and ethical sourcing is at the heart of all the menus I create.

I love experimenting and learning about new ingredients and cooking techniques. As this is not always possible in the workplace, I hold regular supper clubs (or pop-up restaurants) in aid of local charities to give me a platform to design my own menus as well as give people the opportunity to also try something new.


Having noticed a fast growing appetite in London for pop up restaurants, last summer I decided it was time to give the 'shire a taste of what its neighbour was experiencing. My aim every month is to design an exciting and seasonal three course menu and raise money for a local charity as well as support my near by independent producers. As much as possible I source my vegetables from Sandy Lane Farm, Tiddington and my meat from Meat Masters, Oxford or Newitts Butchery, Thame.

So far they have been a great success and over £2000 has been raised and given to Restore Mental Health, Asylum Welcome, The British Heart Foundation and The Game Keepers Welfare Trust.


If you have any enquiries, are thinking of hosting a dinner party, or are a local charity interested in a supper club, please do not hesitate to contact me!
