Discovering Melbourne's Artisan Foods and Produce

Woodfrog Bread – Satisfies The Senses


Melbourne, the coffee capitol, is also starting to showcase its talent with that another important  staple, bread.  I am so thankful we have more artisan bakers popping up around Melbourne. Next time you sink your teeth into a quality loaf just think when you’re sleeping they’re baking – how fortunate are we!


Woodfrog – Kew (Rear 141 High St)

Woodfrog Bakery of  108 Barkly Street, St Kilda have recently opened two new  shops, in the Tok H Centre, 459 Toorak Rd, Toorak and in Kew,  just opposite Leo’s Fine Supermarket. They do exceptional  sourdough breads. I checked out their Soir loaf (pictured, $6.50) which is a mix of wholemeal wheat, rye and malted barley but not at all heavy and very moorish.   Their breads have an enticing, blistered crust which is thin and crispy, a  beautiful aroma, a  bubbly, moist crumb and a fabulous taste  –  bread that really satisfies all the senses. With the exception of their baguettes, all their breads undergo a 28 hour sourdough ferment, which they say gives it a caramelized, thin crust and open moist crumb.
