Are the Bakers and Pastry Makers the Peacemakers?

alkapal | Feb 18, 201106:17 AM     22

I've noticed that the bakers and pastry makers on TV all seem to be very gentle, patient people. I can see why bakers need patience, and pastry makers, too.

Do you think this observation rings true? Do you know bakers that don't fit this stereotype?

Does your personality direct which type of food-creation that you do?
(I'd say in my case that baking is not my main focus because I don't need the calories that are in most kinds of baked items; nor is it "worth it" because there are just two of us to eat. Also, it seems that I would need more space in my kitchen to do baking).

<And sauté-ers are the Type "A" group? LOL>
