Picture it–Washington, D.C., 2011
Inspired by their travels and unique food experiences abroad, Noah Karesh and Danny Harris wanted to unlock the diverse food and cultural potential of Washington, D.C. Flooded with too many impersonal and sterile restaurants, they sought to reintroduce the original authentic, social dining option: the home cooked meal.
The vision became Feastly, an online marketplace connecting passionate cooks with hungry eaters to offer homemade meals prepared and served in a cook’s home. In lowering the barriers to entry for cooks to share their skills and stories with the world, Feastly lets cooks monetize their passion and provides authentic, dynamic, and social food opportunities for eaters.
Feastly was developed and built over 54 sleepless hours with a team of developers, entrepreneurs, eaters, cooks, travelers, and storytellers during Washington, D.C.’s Start Up Weekend in November 2011.
At present, we are a growing movement of eaters and cooks who want more from dining. Feasters seek authentic food, served around big tables with good people. We are adventurous, but remember our humble food beginnings. A Feaster may be just as excited about an inviting bowl of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich as she is for a lamb roast. And, our cooks are a talented, hospitable group of food lovers with incredible abilities to turn our homes into warm, inviting spaces filled with the wonderful flavors and aromas of our favorite dishes.
Now, won’t you join us for a meal and help us to revolutionize dining? Your stomach and soul will thank you.
