My business has been operating in Adelaide since 1987 and in that time I have remained dedicated to providing high quality service, great tasting food and encompassing value. As a result, Cindy’s Classic Gourmet enjoys a wonderful, well-respected reputation, and I have had the pleasure of working with loving, inspiring, generous couples and families, to bring their engagement party, wedding reception, birthday, anniversary or celebration together.
Cindy's is proud to support same sex couples in South Australia to celebrate their union. All of my wedding packages are inclusive for use for same sex union celebrations. My team and I believe love is precious and should be celebrated and recognised equally. I have also had the honour of working with inspiring South Australian public figures, including being the exclusive caterer for the Lord Mayor’s Department, as well as catering functions for the Australian Liberal Party, Prime Minister John Howard and South Australian Premier John Olsen. Meeting and exceeding the high standards of Australian politicians means that I would be able to please even the most demanding reality TV bride! However, in reality, brides and grooms only demand someone they can trust and rely upon, as they tell you their dreams, visions and the perfect moments that are important to them. It is then my job to offer my assurances and expertise gained from planning and executing hundreds of wedding celebrations, to choose the best suppliers, smooth out any kinks in the running schedule and share my style and eye for detail to create a uniquely personal look.
I also enjoy opportunities for community involvement, and any chance I have to promote South Australia and local business. I catered the SA Great Campaign for five years and am a regular guest speaker at local schools for Australian Business Week. In March 2015 I was a guest speaker at the Businesswoman of the Year Awards hosted by Enterprising Women Whyalla—having come from growing up in Whyalla myself, to planning weddings and functions around Australia.
The ABIA Awards are the most respected in the industry because they are customer-voted, based solely on the feedback of our brides and grooms. Cindy’s Classic Gourmet has been an ABIA member since 2001, and has been consistently securing the support of our clients by winning across multiple categories in the ABIA Awards over those years.
In the most recent 2015 ABIA Awards I was awarded as the winner of two of my categories ad finalist in a third, and was entered into the ABIA Hall of Fame as an Accredited Ambassador. Also in 2015 I was awarded the National ABIA Designer of Dreams Award as Australia’s Number 1 Independent Caterer, and won the same honour again in 2016. Cindy’s Classic Gourmet is also an accredited tourism business and a finalist in three categories of the 2012 South Australian Tourism Awards. In 2011 I was a finalist in the Telstra Businesswomen’s Awards.
I’d love to hear your wedding day dreams, and design your perfect celebration.
Love, Cindy x
