Dench Bakers is a family bakery. Tony Dench and John Dench own and operate the bakery and café at North Fitzroy. It is a good combination of skills and experience...from baking and chefing backgrounds. The level of finish in both departments is clean while still retaining depth and personality.
Organic flour and natural leavens are a feature of almost every bread. There is a high level of clarity about what ingredients and methods are used. It is always refreshing to find a baker that enjoys talking about their process.
Bread baking now takes place in a modern facility at Abbotsford, which can cater for both small and large wholesale orders. However the retail shop in North Fitzroy is the place to sit and sample the fruits of this family's love of good food.
