“If you really want to make a friend, go round someone’s house with a freshly baked loaf of sourdough bread!”
One thing I have missed since moving from Byron Bay to the Sunshine Coast is really good European-style sourdough bread. We’ve tried a few places, but nothing has had that lovely springy crust, full flavour, and moist chewiness I adore.
Out for an early coffee run, Ben spotted a small sign stuck in a garden bed near a set of traffic lights that proclaimed ‘Fresh Sourdough Wed and Sat’ and the address: 12 Kayleigh Drive, Buderim.
Of course, it was a sign! We’re big on signs this week, and Kayleigh drive was right in front of us, so off we went to investigate. I’m so glad we did.
We found Greg Turner, operating his delightful micro-bakery, the Sunshine Coast Sourdough Co, at Shed 3, 12 Kayleigh Drive, Buderim. It’s tucked away, behind a mechanic’s shed, and what a find it is.
Greg uses certified organic ingredients, and his artisan bread and other treats are truly delectable.
Yesterday we bought a House Marinated Olive Sourdough, a Fruit Loaf, and two Roast Pumpkin, Kale and Feta Quiches with buttery pastry and a flavour-packed creamy filling. So good. Greg also had a small range of other breads, brownies, cookies and muffins, and house-made Granola.
This is a small business that is doing its best to avoid waste, so you’re encouraged to order ahead to ensure that you’ll be able to secure what you want on the days Greg is trading. We’ll be doing that, for sure.
What a great little foodie adventure that was.
I encourage you to go check out Greg’s website – Sunshine Coast Sourdough Co, and to taste some of his fabulous bread for yourself! You can visit them on Instagram too.
Love, excellent breakfast toast, and total sourdough heaven, Nicole xx
