Bourke Street Bakery

by Paul Allam, David McGuinness

Situated in the hip foodie enclave of Sydney’s Surry Hills is the original Bourke Street Bakery, a cosy nook selling artisanal baked goods of the highest order. The bakery’s long queue of customers waiting for their daily fix is testament to the popularity of their utterly delicious wares – from rustic breads such as their famous spelt sourdough to the flaky pork and fennel sausage rolls and the most addictive sweet pastries like ginger brulée and pistachio tart.

Bourke Street Bakery is the ultimate baking companion with clear and concise instructions, aimed at the novice home baker while remaining an inspirational and technical reference for professionals of the crust and crumb world.
