Chef Karl Tyler Catering and Events offers a range of bespoke options for all dining experiences, functions and events.
The company is owned and run by Chef Karl Tyler and his partner, Kat Galvin.
Karl is originally from Leicestershire. He is a formally trained chef with over a decade of experience working within restaurant & hotel settings including Michelin Star & Rosette rated establishments across the East Midlands and Australia. He has recently been in a development chef role at a well-known national company and contributed to the production of a variety of products across the UK.
Kat is originally from Canada and attended university there to study events planning and management. Her background is in the retail and hospitality industry with experience in marketing, promotions and front of house management.
Chef Karl Tyler Catering and Events was created about a year ago and ran on a part time basis until recently. The demand for bookings was so great that Karl left his development chef role to run the company full time since February. Kat came on board in April and works full time as events manager and social media and marketing manager.
Chef Karl Tyler Catering and Events provides private chef services and dinner party catering in your home or holiday accommodation for 2- 100 people, as well as catering for weddings, corporate functions and special events.
Each menu is specifically created for your event. We offer sample menus as part of the consultation process so that clients have an idea of what we are able to provide, but we put together a completely bespoke and personalised menu for each and every booking.
We offer 3-6 course sit down meals, canapes and champagne receptions, sharing boards, BBQs, wine pairing options, corporate lunches and Christmas parties to name a few.
We work with a range of trusted suppliers and can provide linen, crockery, equipment, champagne, wines and a mobile bar upon request. We have a team of qualified and dedicated wait staff available too if required.
We tailor every dining experience to your event theme, flavour preferences, food intolerances or dietary requirements and as such, we are one of the few catering companies in the East Midlands to successfully provide a completely bespoke service.
We only use the freshest locally sourced ingredients and this quality is apparent in the food we serve. We have had only positive reviews from past clients and come highly recommended.
Along with our premium food offerings, we pride ourselves on being approachable and friendly. We always make time to answer any questions. We are welcoming and personable at every event always ensuring that each guest has a positive and memorable experience.
As well as our catering and events services, we have recently launched a range of premium artisan brownies which are baked by Chef Karl Tyler. The brownies are hand crafted using high quality chocolate and local ingredients and are available in several decadent flavours, as well as gluten-free and vegan varieties.
We currently sell the brownies at The Park Market which is a specialty artisan food market and by pre-order only. We are in the process of sourcing other premium cafes to partner with and setting up an online shop which will be linked to our website in the next few months.
