Dessert Beer & Sweets Pairing Masterclass – Sat Mar 30th 12:30-2:30pm

At 3 Ravens, we love a good Masterclass! Education and immersion are core values of ours and we’re always looking for fun and unique ways to share our passion for beer. What better way than getting up close and personal with one of our brewers!? Each month we will be holding a themed masterclass where we deep dive into a different topic, showcasing a selection of our beers and discussing the stories behind them and the unique processes involved. Tickets are $65 each and include a guided tour & tasting with one of our brewers and lunch.

This month we’re hosting a Dessert Beer & Sweets Pairing Masterclass!

Join us for a masterclass as we delve into the wonderful world of Dessert Beer & Sweets, complete with brewery tour, beer & dessert pairing as we give you in inside look at how our dessert beers come to be, hosted by one of our brewers and sweets expert, Jaclyn O’Sullivan.

Jacki started her career in the kitchen at the age of 17 in Perth where she was to complete her apprenticeship, moving to Melbourne shortly after. She was fortunate enough to spend time working with Phillipe Mouchel at The Brasserie, offering a solid, classic French foundation to her approach to cooking.

Over the next 6 years, Jacki found herself traveling the globe working in the fast paced demanding kitchens of London, and Vancouver, also gathering invaluable lessons and knowledge from time spend in smaller regional kitchens in The Okanagan with Joy Road Catering and back home at The Loose Box in the Perth Hills.

A chance opportunity to spend a few days with the bakers at Tartine in San Francisco in late 2011, and a nudge in the right direction from Chad Robertson of Tartine, she found herself back in San Francisco twelve months later, studying at the esteemed San Francisco Baking Institute to solidify a burgeoning desire to transition into the world of Sourdough bread, Viennoiserie and Pastry.

Having long held a passion and fascination with wild fermentation, Jacki had ultimately found the craft which made her heart sing. Since returning to Melbourne she has worked under some of the best bakers in the area. Learning to use her intuition, and the essentials of mixing shaping and baking sourdough bread on the huge ovens at Woodfrog bakery in St Kilda, and then further honing these skills with an opportunity to join the team at Tivoli Road Bakery in South Yarra. It was at Tivoli Road where she was delved into the multi layered world of viennoiserie under the tutelage of Michael James, where she spent three and a half years.

Jacki loves butter, croissants, and anything sweet and yeasted!

If you like dessert beer and pastry, then this class is for you!
