Learn Ethiopian Bread Making Skills At All Are Welcome Bakery

Sally Tabart
7th September, 2018

An amazing new workshop series exploring the cultural significance of bread making and supporting women from refugee backgrounds.

Social enterprise Merchant Road have teamed up with Northcote neighbourhood favourite All Are Welcome Bakery to bring us a bread making (and eating!) class like no other. The Bread Commons is a new workshop series that celebrates diversity by exploring the significance of bread across different cultures – no bread puns intended!

Merchant Road, founded by Jane Marx, is an organisation that provides paid hospitality traineeships for women from refugee backgrounds who are currently unemployed and have a history of engaging community staple organisations to create meaningful experiences.

The first in this ongoing series is The Bread Commons – Ethiopia Edition, focusing on bread as it relates to Ethiopian culture. Run by Ethiopian cook Kemulat and her niece Asanti, participants will learn how to make, bake and EAT three of the East African country’s most popular bread varieties. The recipes have been developed by chef Ella Mittas in close partnership with Kemulat and Asanti.

As if an evening learning new skills and sharing culture wasn’t enough of a drawcard, the ticket price also includes a market bag from In Bed Store, a jar of Honey Fingers honey, a bag of Woodstock Flour and traditional Ethiopian tea on the night.

Tickets to the first class have sold out, but you can secure your spot to the second workshop here!

The Bread Commons – Ethiopia Edition
