Eat, Drink, and Have Fun at Feast and Imbibe

By Elisha Neubauer

For those looking for a less-than-traditional caterer, look no further than Feast and Imbibe, a unique catering service in Chicago.

Meaning to literally eat and drink, this family owned and operated service puts a focus on doing things a little differently than most mainstream caterers. To establish this difference, the company refers to itself as a boutique rather than a caterer.

"We're not your typical caterer, we're much more a private chef that offers full service catering," Heather Bublick, Lead Event Producer, said. "We believe in putting a youthful, innovative spin to a very traditional industry."

The magic of Feast and Imbibe is in the simplicity of approachable flavors, the enjoyment of modern presentations, and the value of fresh, seasonal ingredients. They believe that modern American cuisine is more of a type of modern global cuisine. This allows them to be open with their menu choices instead of being limited to any specific spices or styles.

"We enjoy nothing more than the challenge of perfecting a new dish or drink," Bublick said. "We love creating food memories for people."

Feast and Imbibe got started through simple, pop-up dinners. Unexpectedly, their chef-driven approach became increasingly popular and soon, they weren't able to keep up with demand. Before long, they were hosting three dinners a week and began offering private dinners upon request.

"Our first three brides were all girls that attended pop up dinners and wanted us to be a part of their wedding," Bublick said. "It's been an exciting 4 years and has grown very organically."

The team takes providing exceptional service very seriously, but that's not all. They focus on taking a thoughtful, creative approach to every part of the event. In addition to providing clients with the support they need to execute the logistics of their event, Feast and Imbibe's eclectic talents will bring any artistic vision to life in vivid, conversation-starting presentation.

"Food is about comfort, relationships, and, above all, joy," Bublick said. "Our job is to deliver that joy in every bite and every sip, and I believe we do it, like no one else."
