Feast Australia is a catering and food business based in Sorrento.
It is the brainchild and combined passion of Sorrento locals John Middleton and Rachel van den Bosch.
A blooming business and an energetic toddler keep them busy, but John and Rachel still find time to grow their own organic herbs and vegies, and scout the Peninsula for the freshest seasonal ingredients.
We believe in creating beautiful food that you d be proud to serve anybody, anytime.
Combining great produce and having a lot of love for what we do, is what we re about says chef and naturopath Rachel.
Pictured Before starting Feast Australia Rachel worked in restaurants such as The European, Journal Canteen with the much loved Rosa Mitchell and Est Est Est along side the likes of influential chef Donovan Cooke.
I love the excitement and challenges of high-end dining but I was keen for a change of pace.
And running our own catering business has meant I can truly incorporate my ideals when it comes to the standard of food we make, how it s grown, the harmony of flavours and even whether it does you any good once you devoured it John brings the yang to the duo.
Passionate cook and gardener, for John it s all about having a great time and doing right by yourself and the land.
Nothing compares to the flavour and satisfaction of eating something you ve grown yourself.
