Tonight we are working in the Pastry Shop. Nice bakery and first class product.S0me of the baked loaves of our night's work. Apart from a little olive oil in the fnacy loaves all of the bread is fat and sugar free.
Why this blog.....

- January to March 2009. I was on Professional Development leave from my teaching Job at the Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island Universtity. I chose to take a 3 month leave to visit bakeries and teachng institutions in Australia. Thank you to VIU and my union (BCGEU) for supporting this venture. The aim of this blog was to keep an ongoing diary of my experiences and share them with my students and colleagues. This sure beats coming up with a report and slide show months later. I mean "FRESH" is what baking is all about! Learned to bake back in 1978....making granola...but that is another story. .
