The Simple Things In Life Are Often The Best

Another gorgeous weekend at the beach soaking up the sunshine and filling up with fresh beautiful food was just what the soul was searching for. So on the way down we dropped into the fish market to fill the esky with salty delights!

Winding the car window down as we approached to take in a gulp of sea scented air got the taste buds hankering for freshly cooked harbour prawns shoved into crusty white rolls with lashings of my dill and lemon mayonnaise.

The simple things in life are often the best!
I love picking a bunch of Nasturtiums on the secret path from the beach up to the house.

Besides livening up a crisp and piquant green salad, they look simply divine on an old wooden side board in the kitchen.

Tanja, my friend's doggy, loves it at the beach too!

Fresh prawn rolls with dill and lemon mayonnaise are available at both my Double Bay and Cammeray stores every Saturday and Sunday morning. Don't be late or you may miss out!

Happy weekends,

Come into store for beautiful new patisserie items by Simmone Logue!

As we head towards the silly season I thought it would be a good time to bring some beautiful new treats into the Simmone Logue range for your last minute entertaining needs.

Whether you are needing to throw together a quick afternoon tea, maybe at home or in the office, or you have friends coming for dinner and need a sumptuous dessert - we've got it covered.

All boxes of sweets purchased are laden with fresh flowers too.

This blueberry frangipane tart is gorgeous with a dollop of double cream on the side for a dessert option, or served on its own passed around with a cup of English breakfast tea.
These lovely little strawberry and mixed berry tarts filled with dreamy crème pâtissière ensure a perfect end to a light summer lunch, or a treat if you are needing to take a gift.
Why not pick up a couple of slices of pissaladiere for an easy brunch? All you need to do is open the champagne, make a salad and you're done!

Make your own Eton Mess with my funky meringues! Just find a retro glass trifle dish and break them in with handfuls of luscious berries and fresh cream.

Olivier, our gorgeous French Patisserie Chef, brings expert advice on all things sweet, straight from France.

The Simmone Logue stores are open 7 days a week. For opening hours and store addresses please visit our website
