MAURI had the pleasure of catching up with brand ambassador, Noel Stewart, owner & head baker of ‘Stewart’s Bakery’ in Ballarat, Victoria. Noel kindly took time out of his busy day to tell us all about the day (or night!) in a life of a baker, including his favourite parts and products. Keep reading for the full interview.

What does a day in the life of a Baker like you look like? Can you describe your day in two words?

Very demanding. Working as a baker, my day is full on from the moment I get out of bed to the minute I get back in at the end of the day. My day also operates in reverse to the everyday person as most of my work is done in the early hours of the morning.

What is the best part about being a baker?

I would say that the best part of being a baker is definitely that rewarding feeling you get when you see the end product after all the hard work has been put in.

What are your favourite MAURI ranges to use? What types of end products do you create with them?

My favourite MAURI ranges to use in my own baking are the Bread and Sweet Goods Mixes, but I love using all of their ranges really. My favourite MAURI products though would definitely be the Sponge Mix or Donut Mix, basically any of the sweet mixes. You could say I have a sweet tooth!

Which are the busiest times of year for you?

The busiest time of year has to be winter. It seems to go on forever! We sell a lot of pastries especially during this time. People love them!

Do you have any specialty products you like to create for the warmer spring/summer months?

In the warmer months, the speciality products I mainly bake are bread, bread rolls and sandwiches. Perfect for picnics!

What is your favourite aspect of the MAURI products?

My favourite aspects of the MAURI products have to be their quality, consistency and the vast range. I also love the taste! People always come back so the taste must be good.
