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.

We are introducing a new exiciting Artisan bread class. 

The focus of the class will be on Ciabatta & Turkish breads. These are breads with large air holes, the perfect companion to your favorite pasta dish.

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 Fruit scrolls for morning tea, which you make, eat and take home
  • Lunchtime walk around historic Convent buildings, grounds and artist studios
  • Savory calzone for lunch, which you make, eat and take home
  • All recipes and baking methods
  • 1 kilo of organic flour to take home

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

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.

Booked the workshop for my partner birthday and what a day we had! Chris was such a great person to learn from. We can only highly recommend it to anyone who is keen to make some epic bread form scratch at home!

Such an amazing experience! I thought I knew a bit about bread making but boy did I learn a whole lot more. Chris was full of fantastic tips and tricks, we had a great day - thank you so much. Highly recommended.

Fantastic experience as always! It was my second time baking with Chris at the Convent's oven and it's been nice as usual. I learned new recipes and practised dough folding that I learned from him at the first workshop (if you are new to the folding method, you will quickly learn it on the day). Everything is well explained and everyone's baked goodies turned out so well! Thank you for this time. Looking forward to the next one!
