Smaller Bakery Process and Equipment – online video

After the previous post which showed an industrial baking operation, here are a few videos that show smaller scale baking. The first is a slightly mechanised bakery that is producing standard non industrial breads.

The next video is of a small artisinal bakery – these are becoming popular where health, environment and simplicity are traits that consumers are willing to pay more for.

The third video, published on YouTube by Vincent Talleu, shows his love for the tactile aspects of baking.

Please let me know if you find these videos useful or merely a waste of bandwidth and I will adjust my posting appropriately.

This isn’t really for the Food Technologist or the baker to learn about baking, but is rather a gentle and enjoyable read showing the interrelation between biological processes and science.
