Food fads come and go, but nothing beats tucking into freshly baked pies, cakes and bread. Luckily, Victoria’s towns and villages are dotted with pastry havens, their wafting aromas inviting you in to savour artisanal sour dough, divine vanilla slices or a traditional meat pie.
At RedBeard Historic Bakery in Trentham the wood-fired 19th-century masonry oven is as much an attraction as the artisan pies, bread and cakes it produces. Watch the bakers at work, tour the historic bakery, and take a bread-making workshop.
Within lush Sherbrooke Forest, Burnham Bakery takes pride in making bread the traditional way. Master bakers take the best local ingredients and apply biodynamic and sustainable practices to produce plenty of flavour.
