About Us

Meet the dream team of catering

Yes, we've won a lot of awards, but the way we see it, we're really only as good as our last event. It's our mission to take care of people, especially through great food and service. We've got the talent, creativity, and know-how to make that happen at every event we do as the lead catering company in Utah.

Executive Team

Ryan knows catering like the back of his hand. The palms of his hands however, show signs of a childhood spent doing dishes, repairing trucks, and playing with fire. Ryan lives and breathes the art of catering. His work, and passions are one.

President and Chief Operations Officer

Kaleb was born the year Culinary Crafts began. Learning the catering business from the ground up is a slam dunk when you start out crawling on the kitchen floor. Kaleb loves people, he loves food, and he loves bringing them together. Born to cater.
