We are Australia's leading artisan bakery and we LOVE baking good bread!

We want to teach and inspire you to bake good bread at home too, so we have custom built a training school called 'Breaducation' where we hold frequents classes for adults, children, school excursions, corporate team building sessions and loads more! These hands-on baking classes are designed to introduce people of all ages to the joy of baking artisan bread.

We bake bread filled with nutrition and flavour, working with farmers from the best wheat growing regions in Australia. It’s important to us that bread eaters are getting the very best, so what better way to help consumers make better choices than to teach them what we know?

I recommend this class to anyone interested in pastry/laminating work. It's 10/10 from me!


13 November 2018 • The Art of Pastry - Lamination and Shortcrust (Sydney)

Had a great day learning about how and why great flakey and shortcrust pastry is made. Made a whole batch of pastry from scratch to go home and use the learnt knowledge from the class. As well made a yummy shortcrust pastry quiche to eat in class. Made croissants and Danish pastries from scratch and they looked and tasted like a professional had made them even though I was a complete beginner. Had a really great class and the knowledge shared from the teacher was really engaging s d understandable. Thanks so much. Really worth it.


16 October 2018 • The Art of Pastry - Lamination and Shortcrust (Sydney)

Before I attended the pastry lamination workshop I was pretty average at baking and completely clueless about fine pastry. I was intrigued and determined to get better, plus I love eating croissants! The workshop was FUN, hands on, and super informative. I loved every second and now I love croissants even more! I can’t wait to do all the workshops at Brasserie Bread.
