In addition, the Assistant Artisan Baker will be involved in the making of handmade sourdough croissants and other pastry products (known as viennoiserie). Our breads follow a slow fermentation process, meaning we make the dough’s the day before, refrigerate overnight and bake the following morning.

Following training, the post holder will be expected to work without direct supervision, and be confident, for example to open the Bakery in the morning and use ovens to bake the bread and viennoiserie. In addition, there will be opportunity to develop new product lines and flavours.

All Bakers are responsible for undertaking cleaning at the end of dough production and bakery sessions (this essential activity is shared across all Bakers and the business owners).

ANUNA Craft Bakery currently attends three to four markets a week along with Seasonal Food Festivals.
