A Baker is a specialized type of Pastry Chef. A baker is responsible to mix and bake and the ingredients as per the variety in the bread, baked goods and pastries. The baked goods are further seen to be sold by the wholesalers and grocers in the different types of institutional food services. The typical activities performed by the baker have been further seen in terms of checking the quality of the ingredients, preparation of the equipment for baking. It has been further involved to combine the measured ingredients and blenders. Some of the various types of the other process in the baking has been identified with kneading, rolling, cutting and shaping of the dough. A baker in general places the dough in the pan, sheets and mold. Then the baker set the oven temperature. The items are seen to be placed in the hot oven on the grills. The baker is further responsible to identify the colour and the various type of state of the product which are being baked. The final stage in the baking process comprises of application of glazes, icings, or other toppings by use of a brush or spatula. Most of the bakers are seen to operate in the grocery, bakeries and restaurants. Some of the bakers has been however seen to work in the manufacturing facilities and responsible for the distribution of the pastries an breads by the establishment of manufacturing outlet, retail outlet, mail order and wholesale outlet (Chou et al. 2017).
The retail bakers are further seen to own different types of the bakery shops and involved in the business of making and selling of baked items. Moreover, in addition to the baked items, it has been further identified that the baking process is supplemented by setting of the appropriate process and setting of the appropriate price (Oumarou et al. 2016).
B Bakery is recognised as a family owned business with more than 70 employees and the sales revenue pertaining to the company has been seen to increase in the recent times. The main specialization of the bakery has been mainly seen with afternoon tea and French Twist- L'Afternoon Tea. The company has been further seen to be based in London and Bath in U.K. The customers are offered range of choices to enjoy afternoon tea in either unique and hugely popular B Afternoon Tea Bus Tour or the Tea salons owned by the Bakery. The company ensures that the products are gluten free and suitable for all kinds to customers (Sokanu.com 2017).
B Bakery has been further seen to be in the business for a period of more than 50 years and it has been recognised to supply confectionary products and bread loafs to varied number of businesses. Some of the most common form of the distribution has been seen to take place in supermarkets and pub chains. It has been further discerned that the firm has been experienced with mixed fortunes in several years and based on the performance of the business experienced in the last few years. The growth in the business has been further discerned to be in terms of various types of healthy range of products. It has been further observed that in the recent times the key accounts have been unable to produce the important range of the competitive price. Despite of the firm hiring an accountant who was responsible for maintaining the accountants appropriately, the firm has been identified to need much more financial information to run the business efficiently. It has been further discerned that there is need to make the relevant investment in the accounting software to take up their business in the next level (Zaidani et al. 2017).
The baking of bread generally involves six stages. The first stage has been identified with the mixing of ingredients, followed by rising (fermentation). The third basic step of the baking process has been further seen to be identified with kneading. The fourth step of baking is seen in form of second rising followed by baking and cooling (Bakeinfo.co.nz. 2017). The indispensible process in baking has been identified with events which need to be taken care of for the meeting the minimum guidelines to the recipe. Some of the main types of the baking process involve melting of the fat. The second stage has been identified with the expansion of the gases. This process of the baking ensures that the microorganisms are dead. The next stage in the baking process is identified with dissolving the sugar followed by adding of egg, milk, protein coagulate and gluten proteins. The next step in the baking process has seen in terms of the solidification of the starches gelatinizing process. The next important process in the baking has been further seen to be based on evaporating the liquids (Dreyer 2016). The next important process in the baking is identified with Caramelization and Maillard browning in the crust. The next process in the baking has been further identified with inactivation of the enzymes. The enzymes are further seen to be inactivated. The important process in the baking has been further seen with the natural changes in the nutrients (Kiszonas et al. 2015). The final stage in the baking process has been further seen to be identified with breaking of pectin. Some of the various types of the other indispensible process have been identified in terms of Bulk Fermentation, stretching and folding of the dough, dividing and pre-shaping the dough. This has been also seen to give the chance for final stretching and shaping the dough. Autolysing is also seen to be an important process in baking. At this stage the flour and water is seen to be mixed together with fascinating chemical reactions (Kokolj, ?kerget and Ravnik 2017).
