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 since 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.

This was a fantastic hands-on course and lots of fun. Easy-to-follow instructions, useful recipes, and helpful tips and tricks. Even better - I've since attempted the white rolls recipe at home and got the same results as in class! Thanks for a fun-filled day!

Fantastic Class, had a lot of fun, instructions were easy to follow and baker/teacher was very enthusiastic and willing to share tips and ideas. Having the opportunity to taste all our baking was also a bonus and the tour of the grounds towards the end of the class was also nice. The little gifts like flour & apron to take home was also appreciated.

A hundred year old bakery with the wood fired ovens gets you in the spirit of learning, kneading and baking all your bready staples. Great teacher could show where you are going wrong and interfered just enough to ensure you went home with something you could be proud of. Great for beginners.
