Meet Jason - Your Chef

Jason is a talented professional Chef who's passion for food started at a young age. As part of a large family he often helped his mother around the kitchen, and on leaving school he decided to follow a career in cooking. He has travelled the world extensively, and enjoys working (and eating!) in some amazing restaurants. 

Jason says his  culinary influences are as diverse as Yotam Ottolenghi, to Jamie Oliver! Whilst living in Australia he worked for Bill Granger in Sydney, where he enjoyed the fresh and clean flavours of the Southern Hemisphere and Bill's inspirational cooking. On moving back to York he has gained a reputation as a talent of his own.

We think this 5 star review captures him in in a nutshell, “The food is absolutely delicious, with just the right blend of simplicity and artistry…Jason Brannan toils with calm efficiency, sending out a parade of splendid dishes”.

Jason now has a young family of his own, and has worked with us since 2012. He is proud to have cooked for over 100 weddings held at York Maze, with not one having the same menu!! Jason is passionate about working with you to create the menu you want. From Brazilian Feijoada or a simple Hog roast, the choice is yours.

Jason also manages our catering operations when we are open as a visitor attraction, catering for up to 4,000 people in a day! So cooking for 150 of your guests doesn't faze him! He will look forward to sitting down with you and helping you create a bespoke menu for your wedding, that will be truly memorable for everyone.

What our couples say...

"We had our wedding here in April this year and couldn’t have asked for a better day! The whole day was so relaxed! Vikki, Jason and the whole team were amazing!!The food was incredible(& plentiful) Jason helped us decide what we wanted and did a wonderful job, and Vikki kept the whole day moving on seamlessly! If either of us thought we needed something she appeared as if by magic! The venue is beautiful and caters to everybody. Every guest commented on how brilliant they thought the day was and that is all we could hope for! If your looking for somewhere that isn’t your typical hotel wedding you need to see this place!!"

/ Hannah and Richard - June 2018

"I can't even begin to explain how AMAZING these guys are...I know there's loads of people behind the scenes but Vikki and Jason made our day so enjoyable and stress free. From our first meeting 18 months ago I was constantly in contact and they always had time for me and were happy to help me however they could. We got married 16th June here and it was the most perfect day EVER. Anything and everything we wanted they made sure it happened. Nothing was too much trouble. It was so relaxed... So much fun .. Exactly how we wanted it...I can't recommend them and this place enough. The food is out of this world and everything is so well presented and looked fab. It's such a beautiful venue and we enjoyed decorating it exactly how we wanted it. Not many places give you this freedom. All our guests have said it was best day ever and we all just wanna do it again. Defo be re-booking in 10 years or so to renew our vows!!"

/ Anna and Jack - June 2018

"Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending one of The Amazing Wedding Companies weddings at York Maze! From start to to finish, the team worked tirelessly to ensure that every tiny detail was taken care off, ensuring one incredible day! From the hosting, the food, the staff and the venue itself, it really did make our friends wedding one to remember!!"

/ Matt - Wedding Guest - June 2018

"I would just like to thank all the staff at York Maze for making Becki and Greigs wedding so special. Parents could relax knowing their children were entertained and safe. Special thanks to the lovely coordinator who was very professional and efficient whilst being flexible and creative with ideas. The food was delicious and served beautifully. We have been bombarded with compliments on an unforgettable weekend and we will treasure all the memories forever."

/ Christine - Mother of the bride - May 2017

"We originally stumbled across this unique venue when looking for places for a friend’s wedding. A couple of years down the line we were engaged and knew instantly that York Maze was a top contender - we even put our deposit down 2 years before the wedding day! Finding a venue with such flexibility and inspiration for creativity is hard to find and with us wanting to really put our own stamp on the day, it ticked all the boxes. Deciding on our menu was easy and Jason was brilliant at advising us. Overall I couldn't have wished for a better venue. Thank you for all your help."

/ Jonny and Verity - May 2017

"Our wedding day is one we will always treasure and that is largely down to your hard work, professionalism and easy going attitudes. As it was our special day we might be a little biased, but we have had numerous comments from our guests about how great York Maze was, the food, the venue and all the staff. We thought the food was exceptional. We really appreciated how relaxed you were about the schedule, how you guided us through the day and how easy you made it for us. We can't speak highly enough of you. Thank you!"

/ Tim and Jenny - May 2017

"We would like to thank each and every person for making our wedding so special. Vikki, you made us feel so comfortable and made everything run so smoothly. You give us 150%, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Jason, the food was amazing and every one of our guests commented on how great it was. You are such a great team and we are so grateful for all the effort and attention to detail that was given. Thank you so very much again and we feel we have made some friends in the process."
