Catering The Full Catastrophe
Put your own menu together or ask us to make the selections for you. Whether it be a one hour post ceremony snack with a glass of bubbles or a four hour full meal replacement, our selection is second to none. These beautiful morsels can also be served in conjunction with bowl foods for longer events.
buckets, bowls & bigger bites
Mini meals served in rice bowls are a great way to ensure your cocktail party guests go home fully sated. With thirty meat, poultry, seafood and vegetarian bowls to choose from, even the finickiest palates will be happy.
Banquets are a great way to eat if you’re celebrating; be it a wedding, a 50th or an anniversary. Gone are the days of the plated meal. Everyone loves having food options and our banquets give plenty.
Our background in multi-hatted restaurants (Blakes, Stella & Blakes Cafeteria) is reflected in our sit-down menus. Choose from our packages or talk to us about Andrew creating a menu to suit your tastes and occasion. From a two course boardroom lunch to an eight course wine dinner and everything in between, our dishes reflect the freshest available seasonal produce and contemporary presentation.
bbq & buffet
We live in bbq country and are blessed with bbq weather. So why not consider a relaxed bbq instead of a more formal sit-down dinner? Our bbq menus can be served as fork buffets if there is standing room only, as a buffet or as a banquet down the middle of each table. Three packages offer something for everyone and items can be mixed and matched from different packages if you really want to!
Our working lunch menu is designed to be affordable, nutritious, delicious & energizing! We can tailor your menu to suit your needs and we always ensure variety when catering over consecutive days. These menus can be delivered to your workplace or served at one of our meeting facilities.
Just because we are known as a high end caterer doesn’t mean we turn our back on the basics. We treat the humble sandwich with respect! As you would expect… Using only artisan breads & rolls from Noisette bakery and the freshest fillings made in-house every day, our sandwiches are the ultimate.
Get excited about what is generally seen as a ho-hum snack you have with tea or coffee! These are not fillers; we prefer to call ours treats. All savoury & sweet items are made in-house by Blakes Feasts Catering professional pastry chefs and can be supplied with or without beverages.
Blakes Feast Catering offers three sensibly priced beverage packages showcasing wines from the regions that make them best. Riesling from Clare Valley, sauv blanc from Marlborough, cabernet from Coonawarra and shiraz from Heathcote. No Riverland stuff here! All packages include beer, juices & soft drinks.
