Food tech company announces culinary team, first kitchen space and launch date.
TORONTO, Sept. 9, 2015 /CNW/ - Feast, a mobile application that provides a fresh approach to meal delivery, announces its top calibre culinary team of Trish Magwood (SVP Food Experience), Hassel Aviles (Culinary Director) and Curt Martin (Executive Chef). The team will be designing the lunch and dinner menus for the new service to expand Canadian food delivery options to include healthy, locally sourced and tasty meals.
"Having this trifecta of industry talent is huge for Feast", says Feast CEO Steve Harmer, "We are going to provide amazing alternatives to home and work dining options with technology making the process simple and easy. Our vision for healthier meals is inspired by seasonally relevant and local ingredients and will transform how people think of delivery food."
The team has an impressive track record and has already created a meaningful mark on the Canadian culinary scene. Trish Magwood is a noted food author, media personality and has revolutionized the notion of a food experience through her Dish cooking studio. Hassel Aviles is the founder of the Toronto Underground Market, an industry first social food market for entrepreneurs that helped launch over 25 GTA food services. Curt Martin is an accomplished Chef and was recently partner and Executive Chef THR & Co, where he received accolades such as the Top 10 Best New Restaurants from Toronto Life. Rounding out the team is Chef de Cuisine Randy Rojas and Production Chef Veronica Mal.
"Creating a new type of restaurant offering is an amazing opportunity." says Trish Magwood, SVP Food Experience for Feast. "We are designing a premium food experience that people can enjoy in their home and workplace, delivering inspiring and adventurous dishes in a few taps on their phone."
Feast recently set up its first kitchen at 4 Gilead Lane in the Corktown area of Toronto, former stomping grounds of Jamie Kennedy and Gilead Cafe. Chef Jamie is a big supporter of Feast and their approach to meal delivery.
"Feast resonates with my own core values in hospitality", says Jamie Kennedy. "While it is not a restaurant like Gilead was, I am so pleased to hand over the reins to the Feast Team. I can't wait to see how their own wonderful addition to dining in Toronto will evolve"
Set to launch in November 2015, Feast will be available as an iOS and Android application where customers can choose either on-demand delivery, which arrives in 15 to 30 minutes, or schedule delivery in advance. Meals are delivered by cargo bike or electric car, and a text notifies people a few minutes before their order arrives. Expanding to a west end kitchen is currently in the works to give Feast a solid delivery footprint across Toronto.
