Breakfast workspace launch

What: Breakfast Launch | Where: Owen Isherwood, Guildford | When: September 2023

This September, Owen Isherwood showcased a new workspace at White Lion House in Guildford. Marking the occasion with a breakfast launch, Kalm Kitchen provided a beautiful breakfast spread for businesses to graze on while they toured the new space.

Owen Isherwood launch

The purpose-built office environment is set right in the heart of the town and the company wanted a clean line grazing station to align with the light and architectural building. We set up a smart 360 bar, centred in the middle of the building. Crittall windows flooded the space with light and made this a sunny-filled setting to host a delicious breakfast display.

Breakfast highlights included granola pots, mini pastries and honey bundt cake, plus a selection of avocado, smoked salmon or soft-boiled eggs in mini brioche rolls. We topped off this tasty display with green smoothies, juice and plenty of coffee.

The morning was a great success and our client Owen Isherwood shared these kind words:

“Kalm Kitchen were extremely professional throughout, especially as the booking was on relatively short notice. The event ran smoothly, and the service/food was impeccable. Highly recommend it for any corporate events where you are looking to impress.”

Nocturne Music Festival

What: Nocturne Music Festival | Where: Blenheim Palace | When: June 2023

Kalm Kitchen were delighted to cater for VIP guests at the Nocturne Music Festival this summer. Held at Blenheim Palace, Nocturne is a unique music and dining experience that immerses guests in the world-famous surroundings of Sir Winston Churchill’s birthplace.

Nocturne Music Festival

Attendees of the four evening spectaculars were treated to a drinks reception, delicious food and a prime seat at performances. Artists including Lionel Richie, Gregory Porter and Emeli Sandé headed the line-up.

The evening began with guests gathering in the Great Court, where we served up arrival drinks of Prosecco, Pear Collins, bottled beer and sparkling elderflower. Proceedings then moved onto the magnificent Long Library, which was the ideal place to set the scene for such a special evening. We dressed the tables with Chalk Urbane tablecloths alongside vintage green hemstitch napkins. A modern and stylish way to showcase the iconic surroundings.

Music & dining

Pre-laid starters paved the way for a choice of either a meat or plant-based menu, which we rotated between the evenings for anyone lucky enough to attend more than once. Highlights of the menu were treacle and soy cured salmon with a celeriac remoulade and a balsamic glazed beef short rib. The plant-based menu included a cauliflower panna cotta and summer squash arancini. For dessert, a crowd-pleasing toffee apple cheesecake likewise went down a treat!

After the show, guests enjoyed post-concert drinks in the Saloon – a fine setting to wrap up a spectacular evening. All-in-all this was an unforgettable dining experience in exceptionally grand surroundings. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Ferrari launch

What: Ferrari Roma Spider launch| When: July 2023 | Where: Somerley House

Somerley House was the spectacular destination for the Ferrari Roma Spider launch event, hosted by Meridien Modena. Nestled within the New Forest on over 7,000 acres of land, Somerley Estate was designed by architect Samuel Wyatt. Featuring a grand picture gallery, this was the focal point of mingling as the first of the VIP guests arrived.

Ferrari launch Somerley House

This extra special car preview deserved an extra special menu. We had the pleasure of conjuring up canapés, bowl food and patisserie desserts to mark this wonderful, celebratory evening. While a first wave of canapés including scallop tartare, deviled chicken bun and cider braised pulled pork croquettes was circulated, guests enjoyed an Italian-themed line-up of drinks. Limoncello, Italian wines, Peronis, negronis and espresso martinis were all served up in luxurious glassware. Meanwhile, clean line seating and a bar were provided by the client to match in with the sleek lines of the evening’s main star – the Roma Spider.

Food fit for Ferrari!

Other crowd-pleasing bites on the menu included a selection of five bowl foods, which  included herb crushed tuna loin and a seasonally themed green summer salad with white asparagus, courgettes, feves, peas and goat’s curd. After everyone had finished gathering in the library, guests walked through the garden to the bottom lawn. This was the destination for the car unveiling where everyone got first look at the supercar up close and personal.

To round off the evening in fitting style, we circulated a sweet selection of three desserts in glass patisserie pots: Rhubarb mousse, chocolate fudge pieces and a buttermilk & rosemary pannacotta.

What an evening – Forza Ferrari!

Micklefield Hall Tasting Evening

What: Tasting Evening | When: Wednesday 12th February 2020 | Where: Micklefield Hall

This February Kalm Kitchen worked alongside Micklefield Hall to conjure up the latest of our regular tasting evenings. The intimate evening – offered to all couples planning their wedding at the Hertfordshire venue – is a showcase for our menus. But it also gives couples a chance to gather plenty of creative inspiration and imagine how their plans in this special space will come to life.

Micklefield Hall tasting Kalm Kitchen

Our team was there to provide advice and get the creative ball rolling for our brides and grooms. This includes all the important touches – such as food, flowers and photography. Meanwhile our couples are free to ask questions and get inspiration on how to make the most of the beautiful venue.

Creative collaborations

This time we teamed up with talented creative Lou Paper, who provided the gorgeous, hand-finished details. Personalised place cards were placed on dusky pink linens and demonstrated how a simple colour palette can weave a theme throughout a wedding day.

Andrew Flemming styled the venue with some incredible blooms. Potted plants and succulents were used to dress the table, interspersed with some early seasonal spring bulbs. As well as table decorations and floral details to show off the food, he created stunning wall and ceiling displays.

Music for the evening came courtesy of The Collective Band – a group of talented and experienced session musicians who are masters at making an event come to life. And finally, photographer Jack Ladenburg captured the proceedings on camera for us.

Food and drink inspiration

At Kalm Kitchen, we relish the opportunity to serve up long-established favourite dishes as well as new concepts on our menu. We kicked off the evening with a tasty selection of canapés, featuring treats such as

  • Monkfish bites with coriander and onion seed crème fraiche
  • Marinated lamb skewers with minted yoghurt
  • Pork belly on creamy apple dauphinoise, with crackling and apple sauce

Also on the menu was our much-loved Mediterranean Platter. Seared Scallops on sweetcorn purée with toasted corn and Parma ham, and Onion and goats cheese tatin with charred goat’s cheese were other highlights.

For dessert it was our Colonial Patisserie Bar. This new take on a much-loved dessert choice showed how imaginative styling can give your food the wow factor. Alongside the Patisserie Bar was our delicious sharing dessert – Summer Berry Pavlova. A feast for the eyes and also packed with bright, summery flavours.

Our happy couples left with plenty of new inspiration for their wedding plans and it was great to hear back afterwards. They told us that not only had the evening been hugely enjoyable, it had also got them even more excited for their wedding days.

For further wedding menu inspiration, talk to one of our team at Kalm Kitchen. Get in touch at or call us on 01483 813360.

Miss Bush Bridal launch

What: Anna Kara launch event | When: February 2020 | Where: Miss Bush Bridal, Ripley

In celebration of its exciting new designer, Anna Kara, Miss Bush Bridal in Ripley held a wonderful welcome launch this February. Kalm Kitchen was delighted to take part in this evening of beautiful styling, good food, music, and of course, fabulous fashion.

Miss Bush Bridal Anna Kara launch

The Anna Kara bridal launch party was a celebration of bohemian, relaxed style with a twist of Polish inspiration as a nod to the brand’s heritage. It’s been quite a few years since Kalm Kitchen catered an event at The Chapel (in fact we worked on Miss Bush Bridals’ first ever Chapel event in 2014!) and we loved being back. We were tasked to come up with a menu that reflected the designer’s eastern European roots. As designer Anna Kara is from Krakow and all of the dresses are handmade in Poland, we opted for canapés and cocktails with a Polish-inspired theme. Our team put together a mouthwatering menu of treats, which included the following:

In addition, we created two inviting grazing plates, which stood on display close to the chapel entrance and were just as beautiful as they were delicious. The savoury tray included beetroot hummus with goats’ cream and honey, basil and cashew nut pesto, sweet potato and flatleaf mini falafels. The abundant platter also included salted pretzels, Norbury Blue and Sussex Charmer cheese, pickled baby garden vegetables, homemade oat cakes, black olive ficelle and bilberries, decorated with pretty wildflowers. The sweet version featured brownies, macaroons, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, edible flowers, passionfruit, kiwi, and grapefruit. We also put together a special cocktail for the evening; the Polish Mule, using Belvedere Vodka, elderflower syrup and sparkling ginger beer.

Partying in style

A truly spectacular floral display by Wild Renata Flowers added to the bohemian spirit. Sumptuous florals in shades of muted purple and pink, antique yellows next to velvety deep red, and wild foliage in a rich dark green and burgundy transformed the chapel’s signature arch. Guests were not only treated to a fantastic fashion presentation, but also a relaxed party atmosphere with tunes from Spin Sisters and fun Photobooth from Boomerang Booth.
