Mother of All
Chef Kaltum moved to Utah from Sudan in 2013. She learned to love cooking as a child by helping her mother in the kitchen. Her full name, Um-Kaltum, means “Mother of Kaltum” which is part of what lead to her business name "Mother of All." Kaltum wants to share her culinary traditions with all of Utah and is excited to expand her business!
Upon arriving in Utah, Kaltum quickly realized her passion for entrepreneurship & cooking and embarked on her pursuit of opening a business. She joined forces with Spice Kitchen in October of 2014. She purchased a food truck in October, 2016. After renovating the truck she opened for business in mid-2017. You can find the Mother of All food truck around town including at The Black Diamond Store and The Front Climbing Club in Salt Lake City.
The cuisine, with her unique spices and beautiful presentation, is reminiscent of Sudan. Kaltum’s Sudanese specialties include gima (a crispy potato dish of peas, beef, and Sudanese spices), sambusa (a triangular pastry filled with vegetables and spices), falafel (a deep-fried doughnut made of chickpea flour), and basbusa (a sweet, syrupy semolina cake). Her typical menu consists of sambusa, falafel, rice, chicken and vegetables.
Chef Kaltum earns 2nd in statewide competition! - On April 17, 2018 the Women's Entrepreneurial Conference invited Chef Kaltum to pitch Mother of All, her catering business started with the help of Spice Kitchen Incubator, alongside four other finalists from across the state.
