Our story began in 2013 by the joint cooperation of Paul O’Brien and Gabriela Maria Cristea in Islington, London.
Sunflour Bakery was established on the core values of making the best bread and cakes with the freshest ingredients. Every product that comes out of our oven is made with heart and soul.
Paul O’Brien has been baking for over 30 years and spent thirteen years working for the original Artisan Baker Dan Schickentanz at Borough Market for Degustibus where he learnt about Sourdough and Rye Breads.
He is trying to bring this concept to the Caledonian Road by using sourdough as a natural fermentation in all the breads to give extra flavour and longer shelf life.
Everything we produce is made in small batches without additives, preservatives or improvers and has a long fermentation. Every single bread or roll is moulded by hand.
Gabriela also worked for Degustibus for eight years. She has a lot of experience in home made cakes including cupcakes, Birthday cakes and all types of Celebration Cakes. She also has experience working with all types of Food and specialises in all types of Catering corporate or private.
Our mission is to use simple and good quality ingredients to deliver the freshest products with the most delicious taste.
