    “The great proportion of our food comes, in one way or another, from the dirt that we stand on. One of the greatest things you can do is share this food and respect how and where it came from by making informed responsible choices.”

    Simon Bryant is a face well known to many Australians from co-staring ABC program The Cook & the Chef with food icon Maggie Beer. The show aired more than 150 episodes over four years, attracting more than 600,000 viewers nationally each week.

    Simon is proud of his personal achievement in providing ‘real local food’ within the normally restrictive environment of a large scale commercial kitchen by using an ‘in the field’ approach , visiting the state’s producers, forming personal relationships and sourcing the finest product ‘first hand’. Simon passionately believes in highlighting ethical food issues, including paying fair prices to producers for ethically produced food, using local seasonal food with less environmental impact, the use of Australian native foods, and in particular, the ethical treatment of animals in the food chain.
