Melbourne "Bread Top"

Below are some pictures of an Asian Bakery Franchise. Asian yeasted is very white, soft and sweet, but everything looks really tasty. The system in the shop is that you tour around the products, choosing what you desire and placing the pastries with tongs on a tray. You then pay for your products at the check-out.Of particlar note at Bread Top was their Bamboo Charcoal bread, I have never seen a baked product so black before, (except the odd product left in the oven overnight!).
It was actually quite delicious....but then again I like burnt toast!

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. .
