Neville, a 1995 graduate of DePauw University, is launching a new magazine, Feast, which will be available beginning July 27 in 500 locations in the St. Louis area, including grocery stores.  "Each Feast, a full-color, large-format magazine, will include lifestyle features sharing and exploring ideas -- from dining room furniture to homemade cocktails, grilled fish to homegrown tomatoes -- that readers can use to enhance their own homes," notes an article in the Suburban Journals.

"We are really doing home cooking and elements of kitchen design," says Neville, who previously founded Sauce magazine. "We'll still have local chefs for stories. After all, they are the beating heart of the industry, but we want them to not just provide a fabulous dinner on a Saturday night, but to inspire cooking it at home."

The story points out that Neville "studied writing and art history at DePauw University" and that, with a father in the Air Force, her family lived in three states and even in Turkey when she was growing up. Catherine Neville s010-b.jpg

"Moving from place to place gave her a keen eye and tasteful appreciation for food, precedent for her entrepreneurial spirit in Feast," writes Janice Denham. "Her dad's official roles led to parties and entertaining, where she absorbed the cooking atmosphere, but often served as "hat check girl." Neville became his able assistant testing steaks at the grill, where he added his 'secret' sauce."
