Melbourne/William Angliss College

I wasn't going to post anything about William Angliss...they have far to many toys! I am just kidding, although I would be lying to say I wasn't jealous!
Fellow instructor Brendan Carter showed me around over 2 very interesting mornings.
William Angliss is a hospitality college, which was started by Sir William Angliss, a successful butcher, who endowed it to encourage training in the meat cutting trade.
Below are some images of the college.

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. .
