Tucked away down Leeds St, between Ghuznee & Dixon St, Leeds Street Bakery is the newest venture of brothers Shepherd & Jesse from 'Ti Kouka Cafe'. And it has already made its mark in Wellington with its salted caramel cookies, scones & fresh bread flying out the door.
The brother's have applied the same philosophy at Leeds St Bakery as they do in Ti Kouka Cafe. "We only use the best local ingredients, and we believe this gives our food and drinks an edge that you can taste." They use local, sustainable, organic and seasonal produce when ever possible. And you only need to bite into a loaf of their bread or nibble at some of their baking to tell it is made with the utmost care.
With over 15 years experience as a chef, Shepherd has been working on the breads for the bakery for the past year - so far the range includes 100% organic wholemeal and white sourdough loaves; olive, thyme & lemon sourdough; baguettes, brioche, polenta and rosemary loaf, and ryebread. Some of which you'll see on Urban Harvest over the next few weeks.
Leeds St Bakery also whip up delicious sweet treats each day - many of them gluten free - for you to share with friends or family. Or, if you're like me, to hide away and eat all by yourself! Lemon sour cakes, mini carrot cakes with honey cream cheese icing (how good does that sound!), raspberry & chocolate brownies, berry friands and of course the "famous in Wellington" salted caramel (or chocolate) cookies.
We're really excited to welcome Leeds St Bakery to the Urban Harvest family of suppliers.
