I am a long-standing resident in a small community, and honesty is very important to me. When I say we source our food from our own gardens and the farms which ring our district, I really mean that; it is fundamental to our operating policy. We use organic vegetables, buy whole animals from farms that pasture their livestock and nurture them before that one bad day, and we respect the death of the animal by cooking all of its bits. Sustainability is key.

Gary and the team supplied the food for our wedding and it did not disappoint! We had a grazing table and roaming canapés, in to shared mains and sides. All the food was locally sourced / grown at Spade to Blade, which was really important to us. Gary made our lives so easy and had worked at the venue before. We had so many compliments on the food and no one went hungry! We would 100% recommend Gary and the team for weddings / events.

Spade to Blade catered for our beautiful backyard wedding. The food was absolutely amazing with canopes, mains & desserts. Our guests just raved about the day, especially the presentation & abundance of food! They certainly didn’t go home hungry. The staff were so lovely & made sure that the bride & groom (us) had plenty of food after the photo session. We would highly recommend Spade to Blade for your special day! You won’t be disappointed!

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!

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!

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!

Catering alternatives to a sit-down dinner?

Spade to Blade Catering

Standup dinners are a great alternative to a formal sit down and have a number of advantages.  You don't need as big a space for all the guests, and really good savings can be made if you don't have a lot of crockery, cutlery, linen, chairs and tables and so on.  it can be a really dynamic party style vibe.  just make sure the mains finsih with a little bowl or plate and fork, as some people don't feel they have properly eaten until they feel a fork in their fingers.
