  • About

Brioche is a lovely soft roll or loaf made from a yeast dough enriched with eggs and butter, which give it its distinctive colour and flavour. Brioche varies in shape from region to region, with the Parisian variety – a small ball of brioche on top of a larger base, or brioche à tête – perhaps most familiar to us. The most highly regarded brioches come from Gournay and Gisors in Normandy. Serve with scoops of real vanilla ice cream for a melt-in-your-mouth pudding.
