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.
