excited to share our journey with you.

our story

IMG_8407.JPG

Our story is one of love, culinary expertise, and the pursuit of a dream. We are a family-owned and operated company, founded by husband and wife duo, Chef David Kullman and Gabriela Kullman. Our journey began over a decade ago when David started his culinary career, honing his skills in various culinary roles. In 2018, fueled by our shared passion for exquisite food and hospitality, we embarked on a weekend venture, catering for friends and family. It was the first step towards realizing a dream that had always burned brightly within us: to be full-time caterers. With unwavering determination, we worked diligently to transform that dream into a reality. Finally, in 2021, Kullman Catering became our full-time career, marking the culmination of years of dedication and hard work.

a note from the chef

With a passion for culinary arts sparked at the young age of 15, I plunged into the world of flavors by enrolling in the high school culinary program. A journey that began with interning at Lido Restaurant and progressed to working under the guidance of Chef Darcy Letourno on Catalina Island, where I orchestrated daily feasts for 100-300 people.

Post Catalina island, I honed my skills on the demanding line of Ember Restaurant, learning the art of high-end cuisine. Seeking versatility, I embraced the challenge of being a chef at Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant, perfecting the craft of large-scale, industrial-scale food service. Juggling this with weekends dedicated to catering events along the central coast, and working as a cook at the incredible Spoon Trade restaurant where I learned the importance of having a kind and gracious leader at the helm of any food service organization. Within the catering world I swiftly ascended to the role of a site chef, where I found my true calling in food and event production. 

Venturing beyond borders, I dedicated a year to volunteering at an orphanage in Belize, orchestrating daily culinary symphonies for over 50 individuals. Navigating local markets, I infused creativity into dishes while managing a tight budget.

Dreaming of a culinary empire, I synthesized the best from each experience, birthing a company from scratch. Now, with a fusion of expertise and creativity, I'm ready to craft the event of your dreams. Let the culinary journey begin!

words from the event manager

My journey in the industry began in 2018 as a banquet manager alongside my husband at a family friends wedding. Balancing multiple jobs at once, an educator to young children and a caregiver for the elderly, sharpened my organizational and administrative skills. I integrated my love for caring for others into our company, emphasizing client connections and a fervor for events. With a natural knack for efficient organization and management, I alleviate the stress of event planning for my clients. The meaningful connections I developed from catering fueled the creation of our sister company, Revel Events Collective, a wedding and event planning service. I’m thrilled to embark on this journey with you and I’m committed to going above and beyond for you and your guests.
