Sunnybrae (Victoria, Australia) is proud to announce two very special events on 21st and 22nd October. John Downes will give 2 classes devoted to the finer points of naturally leavened bread making.
The Sunday class will be for non professionals and will demystify the process, explain the making of the starter and participate in the making, shaping and baking of a number of different breads.
The Monday will be for professional and budding professional bakers and promises to be a unique and exciting day. John asks bakers to bring a loaf of their bread not for a competitive analysis but rather a way of displaying the many ways that this fundamental food is expressed and how each characteristic can be developed.
There will be a comparative look at the many different bread flours available plus much more. More importantly, on both days there will be a chance for bakers to meet and learn from this distinguished father of modern artisan bread in Australia.
Both days will include plenty of time at the table enjoying the spring offerings of Sunnybrae’s garden and other specialties including a sneak look at the emerging small wineries of the region. For those new to Sunnybrae there is now a masonry baker’s oven designed and made by Alan Scott in the courtyard.
Sunday 21 October 10 am till 5 pm
Monday 22 October 10 am till 5pm
$150.00 each class includes all food wine and GST.
Only a maximum of 14 places in each class.
