The Story of Dust

Know to most as Ces, Cesare Salemi grew up following his late father’s footsteps into bread. He opened DUST to re-position bread at the rightful heart of our tables, meals, families and lives, and re-define the perception of flour.

Obsessed with the process, the team at DUST mill their own flour on-site, using a custom-built stone mill from Austria, nicknamed Heidi. No commercial standard roller mill flour is used in anything made at DUST. Every loaf is gently mixed and slow fermented for a minimum of 48 hours.

Ces and his team are involved right from grain selection and sourcing of whole grains from local farms, all the way through to milling.

Offering a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, DUST goes well beyond just sourdough – using heritage grains like bok, chick pea flour, amaranth, quinoa and more to create incredible tasting, healthy bread, slow-fermented wood-fire pizzas and bakery items.

There’s a daily rotating cabinet of pastries, pies, cakes and doughnuts, bacon-and-egg rolls and schiacciata on offer for walk ins, plus excellent coffee from our friends Toby’s Estate.
