Silo Bakery, Canberra

Saturday morning at Canberra's Silo Bakery.
And so busy...

Sampling of the bread after our visit.

Milling around waiting for a table.

Packed, behind and in front of the counter!

"French" baking...lemon tart was amazing.

Uniform shape of loaves was not a worry, or desired, here.

In spite of the how small Silo was, they fitted in a small cool cheese room full of specialty cheeses and sampled these as well as their bread.

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. .
