Dvash offers bespoke Kosher Catering to clients across London. Our kitchen is a medley of Eastern techniques and Western flavours, producing rich dishes and unique feasting experiences that seize the appetites and imaginations of our clientele. 

We believe that catering should be unique and aligned to the individuality of every occasion, and because of this, we have no set menus or even set dishes. Every dish that leaves our kitchen has you at its core as we strive to be obsessively personal.

We are now looking for a highly organised Event Planner with excellent client service skills to join our team.

• Brainstorming and implementing event plans and concepts.

• Handling budgeting and invoicing.
