Baking as a career
cAN baking be a rewarding career? Bread is one of the major staple foods in many cultures around the world.
Bread making is a combination of art and science because it involves creativity to produce different flavours, shapes, sizes as well as some science knowledge to produce different textures.
With the recent demand for healthy and ingredients-enhanced breads, bakers around the world are producing more bread varieties.
Professional bakers can be attached to five-star hotels, bread making factories, flour manufacturing companies, fine dining restaurants, pastry shops or even to run their own bakery shop.
With such flourishing career prospects, more and more students are interested in taking courses pertaining to this field. The more creative and passionate you are in your job, the more you get paid.
