Slow Food. Enchanted Nature. Seasonal Flowers. Simple Gatherings. Pure Magic.
FEAST founder Amanda Robson is an arbiter of beautifully well-imagined gatherings that bring together inspiring chefs and craftsmen in her local community of Maui, Hawaii. She creates atmospheres with a sense of magic and a nod to the natural world. She believes in a collective energy and the artisan spirit of a community and aims to infuse those qualities into every step of a FEAST celebration. After all, it is the people, the food, the history and the culture that give an event that distinctive, life-giving feel that transports guests and makes time slow. Amanda’s wish is for a FEAST environment to be one of grounded elegance where creativity, seasonality and local ingredients are foremost.
Born and raised in Hawaii, Amanda was trained at The California Culinary Academy, San Francisco. She honed her art directing skills in Los Angeles’ stage and television industries for many years before returning to her island home. Now, with her feet firmly planted in Maui’s rich soil, Amanda has found endless inspiration in the rugged and tropical surroundings of her Upcountry homestead that she shares with her husband and child. Since 2013, she has collaborated with Maui’s farm-to-table chefs, visual storytellers, florists and makers to orchestrate rustic, whimsical and intimate gatherings. The local, slow food movement is the beating heart of FEAST. Whether Amanda is foraging in her backyard for florals, arranging a table or orchestrating the components of a photo shoot, her reverence for nature shines bright.
FEAST offers creative direction, production and styling for slow food gatherings, simple celebrations and thoughtful weddings. Want to work together? Contact Amanda here.
