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.

Events Ask and You Shall Receive
If there’s one thing guests remember about the weddings we organise, it’s the food. Innovative, imaginative, forward-thinking and confident are the hallmarks of Blakes Feast.
Blakes Feast caters to a discerning corporate clientele interested in superior food, simply done, but done well. You’ll never eat a bland, mayo-laden chicken sandwich again. (Ours are soft ‘pillows’ of roast chicken, baby spinach and truffled pecorino.)
The Melbourne Cup Carnival is a lavish spectacle of tradition, racing, glamour, fashion, prestige and entertainment. But let’s not forget the food. It’s the real centrepiece to the Carnival experience.
Waterford Crystal Polo in the City is a sporting event that just keeps getting bigger. Here at Blakes Feast we’re chuffed to be involved in this star-studded event for the fifth year in a row.
Let’s set the scene: imaginative restaurant-quality food, the perfect table setting, a convivial atmosphere. All from the comfort of home, or at a location hand-picked by you.

About us A moment in history
Blakes Feast is a family-run business, spearheaded by one of Melbourne's most influential chefs, Andrew Blake, a true food innovator.
What started as a two-person show in 1992 has grown organically into Melbourne's premier catering company. It's been a long journey (and there's been plenty of bumps along the way), but what sets us apart is our approach.
Scene-stealing food, attention to detail and a flexible, yet no-nonsense style are the hallmarks of Blakes Feast.
At the heart of everything we do, you'll find two ongoing themes: food and family.
When planning your event, you'll speak to a family member at some stage. You'll learn that we don’t compromise on quality at any stage of the process.
And you'll discover why this works: our hands-on approach means we can deliver you an exemplary service without exception. It's what separates us from the rest of the catering pack.
Our collective experience in restaurants, cafés, bars and catering venues ensures your next event is delivered with contemporary flair, innovation and imagination.
It's one of the reasons we were awarded 'Wedding Caterer of the Year' in 2013 by the Restaurant & Catering Association and were again a finalist in 2014.
When we're not organising weddings, corporate events or parties big and small, you'll find us catering some of Melbourne's premier events at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Waterford Crystal Polo in the City and the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington Racecourse.
Blakes Feast – food worth celebrating.
