About Baker's Treat

Matthew Thorpe
Baker’s Treat was established in 2013 by multi-award winning baker Matthew Thorpe, with a mission of educating, equipping and inspiring people to bake at home.

This is achieved in each baking class by education through explanations of ingredients and methods, equipping by practical hands-on experience and inspiring by seeing what can be accomplished in a home kitchen environment.

Baking is a profession as well as a hobby for Matthew, and he has done considerable baking not only in a home kitchen environment but also in commercial bakeries, large and small. Because of this, he has a unique perspective on home baking applying a professional approach to baking at home, to achieve bakery-quality products at home. Two key focuses of Baker’s Treat baking lessons are time efficiency for busy people and ease of replicating what we make in each baking class in your kitchen at home.

Matthew has represented South Australia at a number of bakery industry competitions and scholarships, highlights being a Gold Medal at the WorldSkills Australia National Competition in 2010, 1st place Ciabatta and Sourdough at the Australian Artisan Baking Cup in 2011, and winning the Bakeskills National Teams Competition in 2012.

In 2011, Matthew was the recipient of a Scholarship that took him to the UK and Europe, where he travelled for two months doing bakery training and work experience at number of internationally known bakeries, patisseries and ingredient companies.

Matthew completed his bakery apprenticeship at a local Adelaide bakery, and his formal bakery studies at the internationally renowned TAFESA Regency Campus. He has since worked at a number of respected Adelaide bakeries and patisseries, where he gained a wide range of knowledge and experience.

Baker’s Treat products have received multiple awards at the Royal Adelaide Show and the SA Baking Show.
