More about Bakery

Bakers need to demonstrate basic baking skills and an attention to detail to create perfect breads and pastries which are both good to look at, and delicious to eat.

They need an intimate knowledge of the right ingredients of a range of baking products, as well as the optimum temperatures and timings each will require for perfect results.

Bakers also need the ability to work under pressure and to get their products from oven to table within the designated time-frame.
