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.

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.

What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday, creating ciabattas, Turkish bread etc on a large communal bench, baked in a wood fired oven that's over 100 years old! I learned heaps of technique from Chris and produced some very professional artisan breads that I am keen to reproduce at home. I bake bread regularly, but a number of the other participants did not and it made no difference at all....in fact I had to unlearn quite a bit...relaxing, inspiring and great value.

I've been making sourdough bread from scratch for about 9 months, but didn't really know how to do anything else apart from basic yeast based loaves. I got a voucher for this course as a gift, and it was fantastic. It was simple to understand, Chris the baker was awesome and we learned some super easy techniques of making some seriously nice bread! It's messy, it's fun and it's delicious. Some of the techniques are a little tricky at first but it's worth persisting (and Chris helped us all get to the point we needed too) and the results are absolutely worth it.
