During the final two years of her BA LLB degrees, Babette became obsessed with bread baking and often found herself baking through the night. After graduating, Babette decided to trade law for bread baking and travelled to Vermont, USA to apprentice with the late French Master Baker Gerard Rubaud. The apprenticeship involved the learning of old school artisan bread baking techniques as well as the cultivation and maintaining of a traditional sourdough culture. Babette returned to South Africa with her Sourdough culture "Maggie" and ran Babette's Bread (wholesale bakery and bread workshops) until 2020. Currently based in Vancouver, Canada, Babette offers online bread workshops and has several new projects launching shortly.
