Centrum Agrarische Geschiedenis (CAG) and Walter Plaetinck Bakery Museum in Veurne launched an interview project on baker generations in Flanders in mid-2010.

Staff from both heritage institutions interviewed some 35 baker families (with at least two generations alive) from the five Flemish provinces.

 

Life as a baker in words and images

The project probed the ins and outs of the bakery, shop and workshop. Working together within the family was also discussed, as was the social life of the bakery family. The information from the interviews was supplemented with insights from (professional) literature.

 

The final product of the collaboration was the exhibition ‘Kneaded as bakers. Baker generations and their history’, which ran from 11 June to 30 November 2011 at the Bakery Museum. A small brochure accompanied the expo.
