Brioche Nanterre, from Baking with Julia (Nancy Silverton). The "braiding" effect was inspired by Sheila Linderman's technique
in her book, The New French Baker. I took balls of dough and aligned them side by side, built up in pyramid fashion to achieve
Brioche Nanterre, Interior. I brushed a beaten egg white towards the end of baking to give the loaf a browning.
Beaten egg yolk with a tablespoon of water give the loaf a nice sheen when applied before baking.
Brioche, basis for walnut sticky buns. Recipe from Baking with Julia Child (Nancy Silverton). Tons of butter, using a
pastry folding technique and chilled dough. Tip: do not roll too tightly or the buns won't expand.
