We concentrate on preparing the very best and freshest organically grown foods from the many great farms which surround our district.

Premium Organic Catering at conventional rates for your wedding day

Spade to Blade Catering is based in Daylesford, Victoria.  We concentrate on preparing the very best and freshest organically grown foods from the many great farms which surround our district.

Mostly, the food we put on the plate has travelled no further than 15 kms from its source to our production kitchen.

Spade to Blade has been providing service to functions throughout central Victoria since 1993.  We are highly experienced food industry professionals.

We offer a wide range of catering to suit most hosts, venues and budgets.

The menus we offer are individually tailored to reflect seasonality and the personality of our clients.

Attendees at our events are regularly in the hundreds and sometimes in the thousands.  Small, exquisite parties are also available.

In 2007 Spade to Blade amalgamated with Daylesford Catering.  JT Morganti, of Daylesford Catering, brings an additional dimension to the business with his knowledge and commitment to the Swiss Italian heritage of the region.

Spade to Blade did a wonderful job at our wedding. The food was incredible and plenty of it! We had so many compliments including from guests with dietary considerations. They did so well to cater for everyone and everything was delicious. I'm so glad as the bride and groom we took everyone's advice to sit down to eat because it would have been a shame to miss out!

Absolutely delicious and fresh local food at a great price. Gary and team provided us with a delicious and colourful assortment of vegan and vegetarian food arranged beautifully on rustic wooden boards and platters. Highly recommend Spade to Blade for catering in the Daylesford area!

Amazing! We loved the food and had such great feedback from our guests. Staff were outstanding and easily accommodated varying dietary requirements. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Also hired an extra staff member to manage the bar and he was outstanding.

The food was delicious, plentiful and no fuss to us at all. All the comments from our guests were positive, and that includes vegetarians, kids and carnivores!

Gary was brilliant to deal with, staff he provided for our wedding were fantastic, food was incredibly tasty and great quality local produce. The shared style meal went down really well, and meant there wasn't heaps of waste - people who wanted more could have more, people who didn't want to eat as much didn't. Leftovers for lovely family dinner night after the wedding!

I cannot thank Spade to Blade enough for the work they did at our wedding. Not only did they provide the most delicious menu that everyone LOVED, Gary was such a huge help when discussing the logistics of the day for our DIY wedding. Our menu included canapés, grazing table, stand up mains and roving desserts, plus a bar that Gary's team manned for the night. The food looked and tasted amazing. We had so many comments on how delicious the food was (and how much of it there was!), and how lovely the staff were. I honestly could not fault Spade to Blade! Highly recommended! Thank you being a part of our wedding!! Claire & Ben :)

We were thrilled with the food at our wedding. I honestly am still thinking about how ridiculously delicious it was. Brilliant quality, wonderful varied flavours, and made with really good quality produce. We wouldn't hesitate to choose Spade to Blade again -- delicious! Thank you, Gary & team : )

Great local caterer in Daylesford, fresh local produce and custom menu selection based on your choices. Chance to review menu first and worked with us the whole way to create a menu that suited our budget and tastes.

Gary and his team are phenomenal. The slow food philosophy, all local or organic produce and house made condiments make their dishes wholesome and incredibly delicious. Flexible. Professional. Inspired. Our guests raved about the food - said they hadn't tasted flavours like that before! Highly recommended catering team ++

Gary Thomas and his team were absolutely amazing - our food was a big highlight of our wedding! His skill and attention to detail in designing a menu that perfectly suited our theme, and us, was second to none. Cannot recommend Spade to Blade highly enough. We were thrilled!

20 Mar 2015

So, so friendly and spot-on. Gary knew exactly what we were after, was very flexible in his execution, and made it all happen (3 courses for 150 people) in the middle of a field in the space of a 5x5m tent! Would definitely recommend. Got great comments on the food too.

My husband & I were recently married in Daylesford & we used Spade to Blade for the catering. We were absolutely blown away with Gary & his Team & most importantly the Food! Our guests are still raving about how amazing the food was. One of the key ingredients of a great wedding is great food & plenty of it, Spade to Blade surpassed all our expectations. Some of the dishes were simply stunning & we felt so proud on the night as you heard the glowing comments & happy smiles. There was that much food that the staff suggested we hold back one serving for the following night! The staff on the night were also exceptional to the point we hugged them as they left, for doing so well. I could go on & on, but I will simply say we HIGHLY recommend Spade to Blade it is a decision you will not regret.

Gary was always available. He caters for absolutely all diets. Gary was able to give us invaluable advice on how to run our wedding as we planned it ourselves. We received a rolling series of platters over two hours that filled everyone up. Has 'local produce', 'sustainable' feel but with formality.

One word - AMAZING. All dietary requirements catered for, DELICIOUS and generously portioned food. Canapes for cocktail hour were incredible and all derived from local, organic produce. The service was attentive without being over bearing. Five incredible stars.

Gary and Victoria were amazing, great food and great organisation. We had a vegetarian menu and every-one commented on how delicious it was. Victoria helped with the planning, easy, professional and understood exactly what we needed. The day couldn't have gone any better.
