Bourke Street Bakery began as a little corner store bakery cafe in the winter of 2004. Paul Allam and David McGuinness were bakers and chefs who shared a love of good food and an appreciation of all things hand made. They also shared a dream to open a little café bakery where everything would be made by hand with dedication and love. Over the years Bourke Street Bakery has grown into a Sydney institution, now with more hands still making and baking with dedication and love.

Bourke Street Bakery makes everything by hand with the best possible ingredients, from organic sourdoughs to pastries and cakes. A combination of great produce, artisanal skill and hard work creates the honest, soulful, delectable bites that Bourke Street Bakery has become famous for.

Fantastic introduction to the whole sourdough process. I left with all the tools and knowledge to make it at home!

Friendly atmosphere with an equally friendly and approachable teacher! Went home with loaves of sourdough, loaves to bake, and a starter to begin our sourdough journey at home!

I thoroughly enjoyed our class. Our instructor was patient and willing to answer our questions. Lots of attention was given to technique which is invaluable. The course is definitely most appreciated by those who have some baking experience but beginners would still have a good time. My take away is it’s all about getting the feel for the dough. That takes practice and more than a couple hours. It was extra special that it took place inside an actual bakery and we could see the ovens and the scale of production that is everyday. I appreciated our instructor continually relating what we were seeing back to our home situation. We went home with enough dough for 3 loaves of bread. Mine just came out of the oven. The house smells amazing!
