Seeking to define the craft baker | A comparative case study of British craft bakers

My masters’ dissertation sought to investigate the culinary practices, representations, traditions, valorisations and fetishizations that contribute to the definition of the British craft baker from the perspective of ethnographic food anthropology. Additionally the bakers’ loaves of bread were viewed as objects of material culture and were analysed as symbolic of cultural hybridisation, reinvention of tradition, socio-economics, identity, and of culinary style.
