Allow us to introduce ourselves

Inspired by a vision to elevate event catering to a whole new level, we launched Kalm Kitchen in 2008.

Today, we’re still a family-run business with a commitment to outstanding customer service at our heart. Since our very first event over 10 years ago, we have established a reputation for an inventive approach to food and meticulous attention to detail.

Every one in our dedicated team shares this passion of challenging perceptions and exceeding expectations.

In return we offer a fun, friendly place to work and a generous benefits package. Interested in joining our team? Do drop us a line.

Sacha Barnett-Reddy

It's fair to say Head Chef Sacha knows his stuff, he's worked in catering for over 40 years! He can turn his hand to all kinds of dishes, and always puts his heart and soul into it. Sacha's food heaven is anything highly skilled and classic. GIve him Beef Wellington followed by Chocolate Fondant and he's a happy man!
