Baking is a food preparation method that involves the use of dry heat, usually through an oven though food can also be baked with hot ashes, or on hot stones. Bread remains the most popular baked food. Others include cakes, tortes, brownies, cookies, pies, muffins, pastries, quiches, scones, crackers, pretzels, and others. These popular items are known collectively as bakery products or goods and can be purchased at a bakery, market, grocery stores, or through other sources such as the internet. In a typical baking process, heat transfer occurs from the surface to the centre of the food being baked This heat movement is responsible for the transformation of batters and doughs to baked food items as well as for the firm dry crust or outer layer and the soft inner layer or centre noticeable in the baked food. Baking and barbecuing are related practices because heat is central to bother whether through a masonry oven for baking or a smoke pit for barbecuing. Both baking and barbecuing can be combined to make a hybrid barbecue. A person who processes and prepares baked food items for a living is called a baker. The art and science of baking are very important in the food industry because of the popularity and wide consumption of baked food such as bread, cakes, cookies and others. Bread particularly have an economic and cultural significance. Though baking predates Rome, it was during the festivity and celebration loving Roman Empire that professional baking or pastry cooks (pastillarium in Rome) became more established and respected. Roman baking methodologies eventually found their way to other cultures in Europe and Asia. By the 13th century, professional baking was flourishing in London and many quality control and other laws were put in place not only for bakers but for the whole food industry. With advancements in technology, baking has since developed into a profitable component of the food industry using automated machinery which enabled more goods to be produced for widespread distribution. One company competing in the industry is Bakedin.
