On his return he trained at the Tante Marie Culinary Academy, where his talents came to the attention of a leading London event caterer. He spent the next few years honing his skills cooking for major events, private clients and multi-national corporate customers before establishing Kalm Kitchen with his partner Jen in 2006. His focus has always been to bring the standards demanded by International clients to every Kalm Kitchen event, however large or small.
