Description

The warm complex aroma of a freshly baked load of bread can be an utterly tantalizing experience. Bread making and baking in general should be simple - and most importantly, fun.

Our bread making workshops will encourage you to have fun at home experimenting with bread. We'll talk you through the bread baking process, explaining each step along the way. You will be able to replicate this at home for the enjoyment of friends and family.

Workshops include:

  • Welcome cup of Fairtrade organic coffee or tea
  • Convent Bakery embroidered apron made from 100% Fairtrade cotton
  • Woodfired scones for morning tea, which you make, eat and take home
  • Lunchtime walk around historic Convent buildings, grounds and artist studios
  • Pizza for lunch, which you make, eat and take home
  • All recipes and baking methods
  • 1 kilo of organic flour to take home
  • Basic authentic sourdough bread techniques, which you will use on the day to mix and bake your own bread and rolls to take home

All workshops are hosted by one of our fully qualified bakers or pastry chefs.

Private bookings are available with a minimum of 8 people any day of the week.

Note: A "no show" fee will apply if the customer wish to rebook the class

Convent Bakery

Vendor sincce 2012

The Abbortsford Convent is an extraordinary place and is becoming an important arts, educational and cultural precinct in Melbourne. It is an invaluable resource for the arts community for training and education, an incubator for creativity and the sharing of ideas, and a place for community participation and enjoyment.

The 11 magnificent buildings and gardens are spread over 6.8 hectares in a sweeping bend in the Yarra river and are surrounded by the Collingwood Children's Farm and Yarra Bend Park.

Nestled within the walls of the Convent Annexe or Kitchen Wing are two magnificent wood fired masonry ovens built in 1901, which were once used by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd to bake all food once served at the Convent.

It is in these amazing ovens that the Convent Bakery, through the hands of its Artisan Bakers, produces a unique variety of old-fashioned wood fired bread.

Such a beautiful old property/bake-house steeped in history. The day was excellent from greetings at the adjoining cafe right through to taking our baked treasures home. So very well organised and Arnauld provided both group and one:one support throughout each phase. He was an extremely skilled teacher. Most ingredients were ready for each participant, which saved time and helped with the flow of instruction. I learned heaps and have the confidence to practice further.
