A Walk Down Baker's Street

A bit of a play on Gerry Rafferty's Baker Street - a great song that still sounds good today.
Our Baker's Street in Trentham leads to the Historic Red Beard Bakery which really is just a cute lane way between the main street shops. Although only a short main street, it contains shops, cafes, restaurants and two hotels with fine meals that keep you entertained for a full weekend away from the city.

A gentle walk pass the many interesting shops brings you to the laneway leading to Red Beard Bakery
It is autumn (fall for US readers) and leaves invite you down the path. to the Red Beard Bakery.
It's not a long path but if you need a rest, or maybe you need somewhere to eat the tasty bread you may have bought.

An unused doorway!!!!



We are finally there - Historic Red Beard Bakery
For those who follow Australia's Master Chef, George Calombaris, Chef and co-compare gives it a big RAP.

Red Beard Bakery Trentham was in operation continuously from 1891 to 1987. It was originally built and operated by John Wolff, later taken over by Charlie Rook and continued by his son. the last owner and baker was Jack Groves whom one of the streets of Trentham is named.  The bakery lay dormant for something like 20 years before Daylesford baker, Adrian Kosky renovated the premises and extended the building for use as a cafe. in 2005 it fell into the hands of brothers John and Alan Reid. They were of Scottish decent where their ancestors were known for having red hair and beards, hence the name of the bakery.

  1. There is something about the fresh warm bread smells wafting out of a rural bakery/cafe that feel cosy and domestic. The aromas remind me of granny's kitchen, especially on a coolish day.

  2. The potato sourdough pictured above is my favourite, but they only make it on Fridays, so until we live there...

  3. Sounds like you will be on the move by the end of the year which is just great. Bet you are looking forward to it.
    Potato sour dough, sounds interesting but a long way to go for us and get a loaf of bread!
    Hope you are both well Diane
