Cookie Corner

Introducing our all-new food stall – cookie corner! At Kalm Kitchen, we’re always working on new ways to wow at weddings and events. So, this season we’re launching a treat-laden tribute to everyone’s favourite sweet bite. This gorgeous cookie corner stall hosts a display of three different flavoured cookies. There’s double chocolate chip, oatmeal and raisin and delectable toffee chocolate chip.

Event & Styling Manager, Pete Holder was responsible for bringing this concept to life. He says, ‘Cookies are a real home comfort, but we’ve elevated them to a new level here. This station is versatile enough for your whole day, whether that’s to start the event as a pre-ceremony treat, to round off your evening, or as favours for your guests to take home, for instance.’

Dessert Tables

The days of a cake being the only sweet centrepiece at a wedding celebration have long gone. Instead, we’re increasingly being asked to create spectacular dessert tables. This wonderful spread of sweet treats gives guests the opportunity to graze long into the night. And they look amazing too. Brides magazine has picked up on this trend, and features some of our creations on their website. Have a look here to see a couple of the spectaculars we created.

Gold Luxe

Some of our other highlights include this beautiful Autumnal-themed Gold Luxe Patisserie Bar for Kat and Angus’s wedding. The line-up included Banana Mess, Chocolate Mess and Blackberry and Blueberry Cheesecake. These mini marvels were decorated with gold leaf for a luxurious feel, while vivid purple hydrangeas and golden stands completed the opulent display.

Kalm Kitchen Boutique Patisserie

Boutique Chic

Thily and Wain opted for an exotic-flavoured Patisserie Boutique at their celebrations at Fetcham Park. Laden with sweet treats and adorned with the prettiest pastel-toned flowers courtesy of Fairy Nuff, it achieved the luxurious wow factor that Thily and Wain had dreamed of. The display included Sparkling Elderflower Jelly, Mango & Raspberry Panna Cotta, and Coconut Tapioca and Papaya Tart.

Kalm Kitchen Eton Mess Bar

Summer sensation

A dessert table is also a great opportunity to find new ways to present traditional concepts. What could sum up the British Summer more than our interactive Eton Mess stand featuring an array of meringues, ripe, scarlet-coloured fruits, cream, wildflower & elderflower jelly, pink rhubarb compote and honeycomb. A help-yourself display invites everyone to get up from the table, graze, get involved, and lose any sense of formality.

Grazing stations

We know you want the food at your celebration to have originality, impact, and loads of style. So, welcome to the grazing station – an all-new eating experience.

Think multiple layers laden with sweet sensations. For instance, macarons, mouthwatering brownies and freshly sliced seasonal fruit, paired with honeycomb-drizzled cheeses and meats. Then add in an array of various baked breads and crackers. ‘From a visual perspective, the concept of a grazing stall or station works so well, creating a dramatic centrepiece at any celebration,’ says Kalm Kitchen’s Jen Middlehurst. ‘But the real treat is coming up with amazing combinations of flavours and individual elements. The end result makes the most of seasonal ingredients and sublime sweet and savoury pairings.’

There’s no doubt, grazing tables add a spectacular look to your proceedings. And we promise your guests will be tempted to tuck in!

Grazing Tables

We’re super excited to introduce our all-new grazing table. It takes the idea of eating, mingling and creating magical displays to a whole new level. We’ve fallen in love with this new way of eating. And what’s more, it ensures the food at your celebration has originality, impact, and loads of style!

Pair it with cheeses and meats drizzled with honeycomb, and serve alongside an  array of various baked breads and crackers. ‘From a visual perspective, the concept of a grazing table works so well, creating a dramatic centrepiece at any celebration,’ says Kalm Kitchen’s Jen Middlehurst. ‘But the real treat is coming up with amazing combinations of flavours and individual elements, which make the most of seasonal ingredients and truly sublime sweet and savoury pairings.’

Share the love

Special occasions are all about laughing, celebrating and spending time together, and as we all know, gathering everyone around the table can often provide the biggest talking point of all. Kalm Kitchen founder Jen says, ‘There’s something really fun and interactive about food that everyone shares between them. It’s a great, informal way to encourage everyone to chat and get stuck in. The best part of these relaxed feasts is that they always look amazing, and taste completely delicious too!’ Dreaming up and presenting spectacular platters of sharing food is one of our favourite tasks at Kalm Kitchen. Here are some of our recent dishes just made for diving into!

Starting in style

Well, they say you eat with your eyes – so feast your eyes on this! Possibly the prettiest starter we’ve ever created, this glorious display of Beetroot Hummus, Hummus, Sun blushed Cherry Tomatoes, Roasted Figs, Beetroot and Feta salad, Tabbouleh, Spiced Nuts, Olives, Burrata, Grana Padana, Parma Ham, Lamb Koftas, Pea and Broad Bean Crostini, Isle of Wight Tomato Crostini and Assorted Crackers provided the perfect symphony of flavours, and honestly tasted every bit as beautiful as it looked.

Carve at the table

How to supercharge a simple roast into the star of the show? How about a whole piece of locally-sourced meat, cooked to perfection and carved straight onto your plate! For total luxury, a fillet of tender beef is presented on a board alongside thyme, slow-roasted shallots and a scattering of pretty, edible flowers. Our butterflied Leg of Lamb is served up with seasonal vegetables such as asparagus, kale or a mountain of succulent peas in the pod. All that’s left is for someone to step up and do the honours with the carving knife!

Summer Sensation

Our bold, floral Summer Berry Pavolvas are adorned with lashings of cream, the ripest seasonal fruits and finished off with edible flowers. Designed to be sliced at the table, someone in each group is nominated to be server – at this recent wedding each one came complete with chef’s hat and detachable moustache! Fun, smiles, and an absolute slice of summer.

Sweet dreams

Could you imagine anything more indulgent than layers of brownie, custard, cream, chocolate sauce, chocolate shards, popping candy, cocoa nibs, chocolate soil, chocolate shavings and salted caramel. Sliced into utterly decadent servings, our Carve at the Table Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie Pavlova is the dessert of dreams! Alternatively, our signature Millefeuille is elegant, abundant, generous, messy, indulgent all at the same time – it’s a bit of a challenge to whoever takes the first slice, but once those glorious layers are all mingled there’s no shortage of takers for the last one!
