Wanted to give a shout out to my good friend John McBryde and his Oklahoma City bakery. He’s a Texas and San Antonio transplant in OKC. John and I were running buddies at Trinity University in SA along with his wife Marla, his brother Mark and Mark’s wife Barbara. John’s brother along with their parents Oliver and Betty all live here in San Antonio.
Prairie Thunder is located in the Historic Plaza Court building located in Mid-Town. It’s a lot like our King William or Monte Vista areas. John bakes some of the best Artisan Breads and Pastries I have ever eaten. I remember him baking bread at Trinity. What started out as his hobby has become his passion and a new career in Prairie Thunder Bakery. Always great when a dream becomes reality!!
I was in OKC recently on a shoot and got to see him and the bakery even though only briefly. Had the best Cheese Danish I can remember in forever. So here some photos of him and his bakery. If in OKC stop in and enjoy a pastry or a bite for lunch. You won’t be disappointed.
It was such a delight being there that morning. We found John and his staff just enjoying themselves, having fun baking breads and preparing foods for lunch. So nice to be in a neighborhood shop with a lot of wonderful people enjoying the morning together. The energy was terrific! Met friends and neighbors who were coming in to pick-up something or just say hi. Reminded us of the era past in Plaza Court!
Here’s the website Prairie Thunder Baking Co. If you stop in sometime, please give John a big hi from me!
