"We know where it came from and how it was made''.
This is food that is nurtured, picked and prepared by local producers who are as passionate about quality as co-owner and head chef Amanda Hinds, her husband Larry and their dedicated staff.
Happily obsessive about sourcing and cooking with local ingredients, Amanda has created an extended family of local growers. Suppliers have become friends and valued customers, who know the deep satisfaction of watching their own carefully tended fresh ingredients transformed into sublime food on the table.
Seasonal breakfast and lunch menus highlight food that is handmade from local ingredients.
Indulge is famous for its sumptuous house-made array of desserts and breads (macarons, cakes, friands, savoury muffins and breads, brioche, tarts, quiches, pizzas).
Smashed macadamia and maple butter, whipped honey butter, passionfruit curd, lime and chilli aioli, granola, slow roasted tomato ragu, roasted beetroot, heirloom tomato relish and Tina berries jam are all made from local ingredients.
Traditional handmade sourdough breads, panini and pastries (almond croissants, pain au chocolat, Danish pastries) come from Moreton Street Bakery at Toogoom. Pasta made by local Italian Emilia, gluten free bread, goat cheese and smoked meats (duck ham, ribs, smoked chicken, double smoked bacon) have pride of place.
Indulge is as dedicated to coffee (single origin Jasper coffee), lovingly prepared by (barista, co-owner and pastry cook) Larry Hinds.
