Tasmania, Pritchard Family, Hobart, Tafe and Agrarian Kitchen

I went to "Tassie" because Alan Scott the late great brick oven builder promoted it as "Vancouver Island South".
He was not wrong. I am saddened that he passed before I could tell hom personally.
I was well looked after by Graham Pritchard and his familly. Graham, and Maedi run the Sourdough Companion Web Site.

I also enjoyed a very instructive morning at the local college in Hobart, which run an excellent baking and pastry program.

I will upload some pictures now and edit them later.

It was great meeting you Martin. I hope it all goes well with the new oven.

Best wishes,

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. .
