Born and raised in NSW’s picturesque Hunter Valley, Simmone Logue cannot even remember a time she didn’t love food. Immersed in an environment where fresh produce was plentiful, she spent her childhood picking fruit, fishing for crayfish, and fossicking for mushrooms. Back in the kitchen, Simmone learned the art of cooking by her nannas, who both had recipes to bequeath and secrets to share.
After moving to Sydney, Simmone turned her passion into a profession, starting her very own cake business in 1990. Thanks to her talent and special touch, things took off quickly – and before long, Simmone had set up shop in Balmain and branched out into read-to-eat meals and catering.
In the years since then, countless Sydneysiders have experienced Simmone’s creations, and become loyal fans of the brand. Having diversified even further into corporate catering, events and weddings, Simmone now has a team of 80, two cafés, and a client list that includes some of Australia’s highest-profile businesses. She’s also penned a best-selling book, ‘In the kitchen’, a treasure trove of classic recipes and inspiration.
However, while she’s come a long way from her rural hometown, what hasn’t changed in Simmone’s philosophy: a commitment to using fresh seasonal produce, and making beautiful, wholesome food that brings people joy.
It’s impossible to create irresistible, nourishing food without equally gorgeous ingredients – and at Simmone Logue, we’re proud of the quality that comes through in every bite. It’s not just a reflection on our own team, it’s a credit to the multitude of suppliers we work with, from our specialty cheese purveyors, to the artisan butchers, and farmers who deliver our poultry, meat and fruit and veg.
As an Australian business, we love supporting our fellow foodies, so we try to source all our ingredients from local growers and manufacturers. Over the years, we’ve been lucky to build a family of incredible suppliers who all share our passion for produce that’s super fresh, bursting with flavour, and free of nasties like artificial preservatives and additives. It’s thanks to all these people that we’re able to serve up feel-good food that tastes so great.
The dinner on Saturday night went off like a charm and was perfect in every way. Your staff were on time, very efficient and super nice to have throughout the evening. The food was delicious and there were some leftovers, so I enjoyed a nice dinner last night!! My kitchen was immaculate which I really appreciated. Dealing with your staff from the very start proved to be a pleasure with nothing proving to be any trouble as we changed our minds on some aspects a few times. The delivery process as seamless and efficient also. So my sincere thanks to all involved for making this occasion such a highlight for our family.
