A baker is someone that loves to bake and spend a lot of time in the kitchen. A baker is different from your ordinary cook. A baker is a person that likes to bake cakes, bread, pastries, biscuits and cookies. A baker works in a bakery and the oven is their main tool that they use to cook all of their sweet and delicious edibles.
The bakers of today work in many different styles of establishments. Some bakers work in small family-run bakeries or restaurants. Others work in supermarkets, grocery stores, delicatessens and even, convenience stores. Some bakers work in a fast-paced environment where they bake items at high volume. Other bakers focus more on specialty-baked items and they may only bake a limited amount of goods every day.
A baker is usually one of the first people up in the morning. Bakers usually start baking as soon as the sun comes up because most of their baked good include bread, bagels, baguettes and other bread products that customers usually purchase in the morning. Typically, a baker's day is filled with weighing and preparing ingredients, baking, packaging products to be sold and cleaning.
