Our Story

I’m Harry, the chief foodie at Feastively.

Mum’s amazing cooking, travelling the world and immersing myself in the Melbourne dining scene turned me into a foodie.

My wife, Dee and I work long hours. We struggle for time to cook healthy and delicious meals on weeknights.

We used to dread the question, “what’s for dinner?”. We couldn’t eat out or have food delivered from a restaurant every day because it’s expensive and unhealthy.

Meal prep on Sunday’s was fine until we had to eat the same thing 6 times a week. We bought into famous chefs’ promises of “15-minute meals” but the reality was far from it.

I wondered how restaurant chefs cook to order so quickly. It struck me when watching the show Chef’s Table, on Netflix®. “It’s mise en place, of course”, I thought, slapping my forehead.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could have something with the convenience of takeaway and the satisfaction of home-cooking? What if dinner wasn’t a compromise between choosing healthy, tasty and convenient?

So I created Feastively – fresh & healthy 15-minute meals. Our menu is inspired by our travels and Melbourne’s culinary diversity.

Enjoy good food together

When I was growing up, my mum always insisted we eat dinner together as a family.

No matter how busy we were, dinnertime was sacred. Hence why we believe food has the power to bring people together.

Whether it’s a weeknight family dinner or entertaining at home. Food has been the catalyst behind strong bonds for us.

It's an occasion to celebrate, commiserate, laugh and chat. Sometimes we forget to cherish the simple things in life.

Local produce & sustainability

Feastively is made in Melbourne, for Melbourne.

We love our local markets and farmers and have a knack for picking up great quality produce. We wake up early on weekends to source the best quality ingredients we can get our hands on.

We believe it's our responsibility to deliver convenience without increasing our environmental costs. Having worked as a volunteer at SecondBite I have seen the astounding amount of food wasted each day. That's why at the Feastively kitchen and in your meal boxes you'll see zero waste.

We're responsible for the land we live off so we use recyclable and reusable materials in our packaging.
