As a detective solving the mystery of the crossword clue ‘Ones working with bread’, my first thought was to consider professions or activities related to bread-making. The first word that came to my mind was baker, but the clue used the plural ‘ones’, indicating the answer should be plural too. With this in mind, I thought about the different roles involved in the bread-making process, and ‘kneading‘ stood out as a crucial step in creating the perfect loaf.
As I continued to ponder the clue, I realized that ‘Kneaders‘ would perfectly fit as an answer, when one is talking about people who work with bread. From artisan bread bakers to boulangeries, the work of kneading the dough to create a perfect texture and consistency is the job of the kneader. Thus, ‘kneaders‘ made perfect sense as the answer to this clever crossword clue, which had eluded so many other puzzlers until now. Case solved!
