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.

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.

I had such a terrific time at the Convent Bakery's Artisan Bread Making class. The time absolutely flew by and I can't believe how much bread/products we were able to bake and take home. The teacher, Chris, is an absolute bread-wizard and was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful; all questions were answered and all instructions and tips were explained clearly. What was most beneficial was the "do you feel this here" and "can you see how..." moments, you can't learn these from reading books or watching youtube tutorials. I did this class on my own and had a blast, so don't be worry if you don't have a buddy to go with you! I can't recommend this enough, it was so much fun.

A practical course taught by a competent teacher that has given me a set of skills to be able to bake bread of exception quality. Chris shared his wealth of experience, particularly the kneading technique taught which significantly reduces the effort needed to prepare the dough for baking. On top of that was the simplest method to prepare a pizza/calzone base I have ever encountered. The class was conducted in the rustic kitchen of the Abbottsford Convent alongside the massive wood fired Scotch oven which took me back to my Grandmother's kitchen. A thoroughly relaxing, enjoyable and valuable educational experience.
