THE BASIL SOURDOUGH STORY

Georgio Basilio, born in Italy, a classically trained chef has worked in restaurants in Italy, France, Switzerland England and Australia. 25 years on Georgio began his quest to perfect the art of sourdough at Redbeard Bakery in Trentham where he became senior baker. 

In 2010, driven by the lack of real bread available in the area, Georgio brought his traditional bread making skills to Ballarat, establishing Basilio Sourdough. Six years on Georgio has set the standard for quality sourdough in Australia. He uses organic and biodynamic produce where possible and supports our local producers using their best quality ingredients. What Georgio creates is a variety of sourdough loaves like no other available in the region, all of his loaves are hand made using time honoured methods he has learned and skills he has honed since embarking on his artful process.

SIX YEARS ON FROM THE INCEPTION OF BASILIO SOURDOUGH

Georgio is still doing things as he has from the beginning, the method is still the same, although he does concede his skills have improved over the years. "Time is the essence." He delivers an exceptional range of sourdough products and also manages to create new and interesting varieties depending on the season and impulse.

Georgio bakes for delivery on three days a week Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. He takes the entire week's orders every Saturday, cutoff 5pm, to ensure he can produce every loaf for the time the process requires.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT?

Georgio has no favourites, and fair enough, when they are all so good who can choose one? He does admit to being partial like to a rye sourdough toastie with corned beef, sauerkraut, gruyere, mustard and pickles.
