Community Bread is a Melbourne based artisan independent bakery providing customers with the highest quality bread made from the highest quality ingredients. Community Bread provides a subscription based membership model and will deliver freshly baked bread to the customer, to ensure freshness and convenience. Hand delivering the bread also provides a connection point between producer and consumer. Community Bread believes that fresh, handmade bread is one of life’s most simple pleasures. Being able to share that bread makes that simple pleasure very very special.
Our bread is made from three ingredients. Flour, salt and water. The flour we use is organic and is sourced from an Australian, family owned business. Our bread is made patiently and above all else, lovingly. We let the bread ferment naturally and at it's own pace. This is generally a 40 hour process. Output is limited to ensure that the highest quality product makes it to our subscribers.
Deliveries can be to a home address or to a place of work. It is up to you to nominate. As all bread is baked on a subscription based model there is no waste. All deliveries are carried out on a bicycle which limits our environmental impact. Currently we are offering delivery to Melbourne CBD, North Melbourne, Kensington, Collingwood, Fitzroy, Fitzroy North, Carlton, Carlton North, Parkville, Brunswick and Northcote. If you fall outside of this catchment area please contact us and we can see if we can arrange a different method to get our bread to you.
I had a lot of fun learning how to bake bread. The class is really hands on and you end up with your own bread loaf to bake at home. Very well explained all the steps necessary to make your bread at home, and also written directions so you don't get lost when you are on your own.Besides you can eat delicious just baked bread during the course. I also had some doubts when baking on my own and Connor was really helpful through the email. Definitly I would recommend this course for those who want to start in the baking bread at home world.
This class is a must-do for anyone wanting to make their own sourdough bread. I had made my own, but it had a number of problems. Now I know where I went wrong, and in the class made a loaf that was absolutely delicious. I have more than enough knowledge now to make it successfully. Thanks, Connor and Dan - this was fun and informative, and excellent value for money.
True gentlemen who have the passion and patience to teach as well as entertain throughout the whole workshop, all things sourdough. I can now make with confidence beautiful sourdough bread where I struggled previously. The highlight was seeing the result of baking the bread and it lookin, smelling and tasting as it should. Amazing.
