PUD FOR ALL SEASONS

Based in Castlemaine, Pud For All Seasons has fast become renowned for Gourmet Puddings in Australia.

Pud for all Seasons was founded in early 2004 by Karen Kelly. This stay-at-home mum independently moved to Castlemaine from Melbourne and was looking for a “little” part-time business to satisfy her passion for fine cuisine, and to exercise her creative mind.   A selection of fine puddings was the inspired result.

Traditional and contemporary Hand-made Puddings to enjoy all year round. Pud for All Seasons uses Local Free Range Eggs and all Australian Dried Fruits wherever possible. Apples and Oranges are fresh from the grower and the bread is from their local baker and crumbed by them! We try to purchase all our ingredients as locally as we can. We compost whatever we can and minimise our environmental footprint as much as we can.   We are a family run business and offer a very flexible work place. We employ local Mum’s and we understand the importance of family.

Grandma’s Plum Pudding and other flavours such as Double Choc and Orange (with Cointreau) and Date & Butterscotch Pudding are also available as Gluten Free options. The range of Dessert Sauces complements the Puds and the Chocolate Coated Puds are just the thing to serve with coffee! In addition to delicious puds, they also have a range of chocolate treats such as Rocky Road, Coconut Rough, A white chocolate treat and a coffee crunch treat.

We make them just like Karen’s Grandma used to, just a few more than she used to make!

Welcome To Our Little Piece of History Originally established 1892

Historic, authentic and artisan, this boutique bakery with its traditional wood fired Scotch oven was built in the late 1890’s by Charles & Stephenson Turner. The brothers delivered their hand-made bread by horse and cart as far as Heidelberg. The bakery has been lovingly restored after being closed in the 1940’s and left vacant for many years.  In honour of its inspiring, hardworking founders we bake all our artisan breads, pies & pastries in our living, breathing, historic wood fired Scotch oven.  We maintain that Charlie’s spirit still watches over our bakers giving them gentle nudges on how to make the best authentic sourdough in Victoria. Our signature authentic hand-made sourdough is made with a mother culture or wild natural yeast that is over 100 years old. This mother culture is fed and cared for daily.  Turners sourdough not only tastes amazing – it’s healthy too, due to its long natural fermentation.

We hope you love all the ingredients that make Turners your home away from home – a passion for traditional artisan baking, fresh, healthy seasonal foods and a sprinkle of sweet love and affection.  Come visit us and ask for a tour of the Bakery and keep us in mind for your next business meeting, family get together, function and catering needs!  Savour.   Indulge.   Enjoy.

MMM COFFEE

Mmm Coffee – a mobile coffee van catering for functions and events from Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges.

We source our organic and fair trade certified coffee from a local roaster “The Little Goat”

Direct trade is an important part of our philosophy. We place an emphasis on knowing and appreciating the 42 hands that it takes to make a beautiful cup of our coffee. Our relationships are built on mutual respect and a desire to benefit each hand that the coffee passes through, from the growers, to the merchants, to our roasters, to our baristas and finally to you..

We appreciate the journey that is encapsulated in each bag of our coffee, where it began as a seed that was planted, to the bean that was harvested, washed, dried, hulled, sorted, weighed, bagged and shipped – ready to be roasted by our team at The Little Goat.

We have proudly been associated with the Whittlesea Show for the past 5 years and are looking forward to returning to the food expo in 2018. Patrons visiting the food expo this year will be treated to our Sweet Maria blend – a sweet rounded espresso coffee with distinctive chocolate and hazelnut flavours. Brazil, Colombia and El Salvador origins have helped achieve this blend.
