Dench Bakery is a family run affair which specialiazes in hand-crafeted mainly sourdough products. They have an eclectic outlet, which they outgrew and Tony got his wish to design and operate his own state of the art bakery after they outgrew the cafe kitchen. Below are some images of the operation.
Why this blog.....
- Martin Barnett
- 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. .
