bbq & buffet

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!

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.
