Meet the Baker
My name is Chris, I am 31 years old, german and live in London since 2014. I am a baker for my whole working life and have nearly 15 years of experience in baking all kinds of goods.
In 2017 I started wondering about our planet, about all living beings and about health, I watched a lot documentaries, read a lot and couldn't identify myself anymore playing an active role in making the earth getting worse. I wanted to make a change and the first step is: change the person you see in the mirror! I became a vegetarian, but only after 2 month I became vegan as I figured out that it is not that hard at all to find something to eat and live a healthy lifestyle as vegan. Still I feel totally brilliant, fit, healthy, powerful, have lots of energy and love to identify myself in NOT being part of making the world worse, NOT supporting animal abuse. With the statement: Be kind to every kind. The only thing I missed sometimes were all the german traditional baked goods, in the past I always baked them in the old traditional way. So I decided to get active: I changed all my recipes, experimented, tried new vegan raw ingredients, and everything I bake is vegan now. Sometimes it is hard to find a yummy treat, then you find something, read the ingredients and of course it isn't vegan. I was tired of this situation and so I contribute my part and make the world a little bit more vegan now myself!
In 2006 I started my professional life as a baker, only 16 years young and just after finishing school. I successfully passed my trade test in 2008 and continued working in the same bakery I leaned all the basics. I did get a higher responsible assignment, but for me that wasn't enough, I had big dreams and so I worked to achieve the next big step: being a master baker. In 2010 I started visiting the very first professional bakers school Olpe, Germany and learned everything about baking, raw materials, compositions, microorganism, scientific experimentations, just everything you need to know as a master baker. The clues and know how I learned at school are always helpful to get satisfaction and a better quality result. In 2011 I received my master baker degree. Still in the same bakery I took over a manager assignment until 2014. Time passed and I had the feeling I need another change. I was always a person that loved big steps, uncommonly, extraordinary, never copied someone else. I always loved London and always wanted to live there... so The day came! In the beginning I applied in a german bakery and got a job. I worked there for almost 2 years until I had another dream: starting my own business, baking and then meeting my own customers, deciding myself what to bake and how to bake it: VEGAN! Also I loved the flexibility of baking and spending time with the most important part in all our lives: the family. I can easily say that right now I love baking more than ever!
