It is no secret that Melbourne has an incredible food and beverage culture; from it’s endless offering of delicious coffees and café eats to it’s oh so chic and edgy wine bars and of course top-tier, fine dining restaurants (with top-tier interiors to match). It’s therefore no surprise that the catering companies at our doorsteps are just as impressive!
Like many others in our industry, Covid-10 has impacted these businesses significantly. However, these talented teams have quickly pivoted and turned to producing mouth-watering meals for our communities. See how you can support them below.
ONE | FREE TO FEED MELBOURNE
Free to Feed is a not-for-profit social enterprise in awe of the potential and spirit of refugees, people seeking asylum and new migrants, and appreciative of what they want to offer as new community members. They aim to champion their unique skills and individual stories.
FTF offer catering services as well as cooking classes, but like many others they have had to quickly adapt to the current climate by offering BRAVE MEALS.
TWO | BLAKES FEAST
Blakes Feast is another super talented local catering company and family business here in Melbourne.
10 years ago Blakes Feast developed take home meals as a side revenue stream to help them through the quiet winters. As they grew this became less of a focus and only something that they sold through their hole in the wall café to loyal clients.
However when they found out they had lost all of their events, they took a gamble and chose to adapt. Take home meals are now their sole focus.
By signing up this means each week you will receive a menu which has been curated by their executive chef Dylan Roberts. These exceptionally delicious meals are prepared by their team of fully qualified chefs.
THREE | COOKES FOOD
Cookes Food is made up of an exceptionally talented team of chefs who offer only the best quality of F&B to the industry.
At the heart of Cookes Food is Sophie, who co-founded the company a decade ago. In their boutique Melbourne kitchen space, Sophie creates one-off menus that bring together the worlds of events and gastronomy.
Cookes Food offers catering, consulting and event services.
However, Sophie and her team very quickly adapted to this change in climate by offering take-home meals for their many loyal customers.
For restaurant quality food that is nourishing and cooked with love, Cookes Food is your answer – we can assure you, you will not regret it.
