About us

Heirloom Catering Co. was created by Dan Tesoriero & Chef Douglas Kerr to fill the demand for a high end, ecologically sustainable and innovative catering service. Doug, Dan and the team are dedicated to the highest quality provision of  food sourcing, preparation and service that can be achieved through a steadfast commitment to analysis and improvement in every aspect of the operation.

From the team that brings you Peasant a unique catering service has been created that combines the best seasonal food, beautiful wine selections, professional serving staff and premiere execution of all events styles.

Heirloom Catering Co. collaboratively develops individually tailored menus, delivering high-end restaurant-quality food to any location within the Goldfields and the Western District of Victoria.

Heirloom offer an elevated food experience for corporate events, boardrooms and private parties, from the simplicity of local seasonal salads, wraps and baguette platters or warm, comforting slow cooks and braises to a fine dining plated service.

Your special day

At Heirloom we don’t believe in set menus for weddings. It is your special day, and as such, the menu should reflect you and your partner’s taste and personality. You tell us what you love to eat, and we build a customised menu experience just for you based on the best local and seasonal produce.

Your personal chef

Our Personal Chef service brings a fine dining experience to your home for your next dinner party. We work from your kitchen to provide you with a seamless, hassle-free dining experience so you can be with your guests.

Let us rattle those pots and pans. Full waiter service is also provided with a personal chef event.

The land inspires us

The Ballarat and Goldfields area provides an endless array of culinary inspiration, with its abundance of high-quality produce and vast community of farmers and producers dedicated to their craft. We pride ourselves in taking these inspirations and fusing them together to create unique custom menus that will cater to all your culinary needs. Locally sourced, seasonal ingredients are vital elements of every dish we create.
