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.

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.

Highly recommend this class. Lots of fun and you come away with plenty of knowledge and beautiful fresh homemade bread. The tour and history of rye kitchen and oven was very interesting. Overall great fun and great value for money.

I recommend this day to anyone who wants to take their bread making skills to the next level. Our small group ranged in experience which didn't bother master baker, Chris. He brought us all along for the ride, ensuring we understood the how, what and why of the process and that we were confident to recreate the doughs at home. The venue is a highlight - baking bread in the original Abbotsford Convent oven.
