Brasserie Breads Sydney 1

Front Of Brasserie and Retail:

Thanks to Jason and the crew at Sydney's Brasserie Breads, south of the city in Banks Meadows. I spent 3 instructive days, trying to keep up with the young guns in both their Bread and Pastry section.

Here are some pictures I will edit them with dialogue later.

Here is the front of the bakery. It started as an off-shoot of a restaurant in King's Cross. One way to serve the bread that you want to is to make it your self. The rest is history.
Here is a link to the web-site.
The front picture of the bakery shows the retail area and also a 12 station Artisan Baking School. Brasserie is committed to sharing their knowledge.

Minimilstic in style but very effective design. The retail space had a bread and pastry counter, and as in lots of bakeries in Australia served espresso drinks and wonderful sandwiches..

Why this blog.....

My photo
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. .
