Baker Bleu joins forces with Providoor for a one-off live masterclass to celebrate Easter.
Premium meal delivery service Providoor is kicking off their virtual Easter masterclass series with none other than baker Mike Russell from Baker Bleu. Get messy with your family, housemates or significant other and learn how to make their delicious sour cherry and dark chocolate Easter buns from scratch at home.
Baker Bleu, the popular Caulfield North bakery providing bread and baked goods to the broader community and some of Victoria’s best restaurants (including Cutler & Co, Di Stasio, Napier Quarter and Carlton Wine Room), has quickly become a crowd favourite since their inception in 2016. Owners Mike and Mia Russell started Baker Bleu wanting to create ethical (and delicious) sourdough bread for Melbourne to enjoy.
“We use the ancient techniques of long fermentation sourdough whilst harnessing modern innovation to form the best possible product. We pride ourselves on using high-quality organic and sustainable ingredients sources as local as possible,” says Mike Russell.
Providoor × Baker Bleu sales open this Saturday, 6 March, coinciding with the launch of BB’s anticipated Easter bun season at their store in Caulfield North (so you can get your fix before you create your own). The live class will then be broadcasted on Sunday, 28 March, with kits dropped to your door the day prior. The class will be broken into three stages – two pre-recorded videos teaching you how to prep and prove dough and then a live class on Instagram teaching how to form, glaze and score the buns and how to make a sourdough starter to use in future baking. The class will be co-hosted by Mike and Providoor founder Shane Delia.
The kit features everything you need to bake and enjoy two dozen Baker Bleu sour cherry & dark chocolate Easter buns, including 1kg of Tuerong Farm Winter White flour, Hunted + Gathered Dominican Republic chocolate, organic sour cherries, St David’s Cultured Butter and the tools (dough scraper and the perfect pan) you need to bake like Mike. You’ll bake one batch with Mike and Shane and one batch for your own time after mastering the skills. As an added bonus, Mike will also share his famous focaccia recipe during the live class.
The class and kit is $95 (plus delivery fee) and can be delivered across Victoria, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and South Australia. Check your postcode here to see whether Providoor can reach you.
