So, I think it's safe to blog about this without jinxing myself now: I've been hired by a bakery! To bake! I'd seen the ad on Craigslist a while back and applied, but I heard nothing for weeks. Then, last week, I saw the ad again and went in, this time armed with photographs of my baked goods. The head baker liked them and soon I was meeting with the manager and owner!
There'll be a trial period, so they can see if I can handle the machinery and production. There's a big Jewish population in the area so the challah bread production will be one of my major responsibilities - thank goodness I brought a picture of my challah bread with me! If all goes well, I'll be the sole baker on Saturdays and Sundays, in charge of muffins, cakes, scones, etc. etc.
I start this Thursday morning with training - at 5AM! Ahhhh!!!
