Hello, everyone. I found this website a while back and decided to join so I could ask questions and share what knowledge I have. I am a professional bread baker, and I have also worked as a butcher. My first job in the kitchen was at a catering company years back making fruit trays and party platters, and I've been working in the food industry since then. There are lots of things I love about working in the food industry, and lots more that I hate, but I can't see myself doing anything else.
Welcome, @Capricciosa! Great to have you here. There are plenty of bakers here for you to exchange ideas and to whom you can share your knowledge. Interesting that you say you "can't see myself doing anything else." So true for so many of our field. The hours can be daunting, the workload can be overwhelming, the demands can be truly painful, alas it is a path from which many of us won't stray.
