Jess’s 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 unique Brooklyn-based catering company, Hearth & Table is dedicated to using only locally sourced provisions. Through our signature cocktails, creative appetizers, and satisfying rustic entrees we deliver innovative, indulgent home cooking for you and your guests with the guarantee of both abundance and enjoyment. Our commitment to your vision, whether you’re hosting a cocktail party for fifty, or an intimate sit-down dinner for two, 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.
To make our catered events most affordable, Hearth & Table has developed relationships with local merchants who meet our high standards for quality—but who are willing to work with us to keep costs low. We base our menu prices on the ingredients used as well as the services requested. Please email for pricing.
As a catering company that prides itself on the quality of our food, the sense of community we build, and our focus on creating new and memorable experiences, it only made sense for Hearth & Table to start a personal food delivery service. You’ll find our delivered food is an extension of our home cooking, with the same menus and fresh, quality ingredients we serve to our family and friends. We are here to please you, and are able and very willing to work within any dietary restrictions or preferences you may have. Hearth & Table purchases all the food, cooks it, packages it and delivers it right to your home. Simply reheat the meals and enjoy the time you’ve saved. Please email to request further menus and pricing.
Trattoria da Vincenzo was inspired by Il Nonno, the Grandfather who owned the land we lived on when we were students in Amelia, Italy one summer. The bungalow we stayed in was called Vincent’s House. Vincenzo worked on the farm and stopped by our bungalow each day to give us the homemade wine he made from grapes he grew himself. He would always ask me as I was on my way to town, “Jessica, te piace il mio vino?” I would respond by telling him that I loved his wine!
There were not many restaurants in Amelia. Hardly any of the locals went out to eat. They believed the best restaurants in town were their kitchens…and they were right. Therefore, when it came to dining, most of the other students in Amelia did not have a lot of options. Since I love to cook, I opened up a tiny restaurant, Trattoria da Vincenzo, right in my bungalow where they could have dinner every Friday night. The dinners were a hit and became very popular in our little town, creating lifelong friendships. I knew that Trattoria da Vincenzo would have to cross the Atlantic and make a home for itself right here in Brooklyn.
This is an experience you won’t want to miss!
As an serious cook myself I am very particular about what I serve my guests. I’ve had many catered meals over the years that were less than spectacular. All that changed when I tried Jess’s food. She uses the best ingredients, prepares everything perfectly, and is inventive in all the right ways. Jess catered a lunch for me several months ago for about 15 guests. People are still talking about how great everything was. I could eat her food every day.

From the day we met her, we knew Jess was our dream wedding caterer. She’s open to ideas and absorbs everything you say. Jess is warm, generous, funny, smart, an extremely hard worker, a fantastic cook, fluent in Spanish (a plus in our case), and above all, a great listener–a skill just as important in a caterer as being an ace in the kitchen.

I wanted to surprise my wife, who is quite the discriminating foodie, with an amazing dining experience. Jess organized a meal for 10 friends that was more amazing than I could have imagined. Not only was the delicious, but the presentation of the courses, wine pairing, and intimate setting around a family style table made it one of the most memorable gifts I have ever been able to offer my wife. I could not be more happy with Jess and her catering.
