Hi, Julius, What a coincidence! I made Brioche for the first time this week also. I had a book for Christmas by the French baker , Richard Bertinet, where he describes in great detail how to make brioche, croissants and all kinds of breads. There is a DVD included which is a great help. Anyway, my brioche turned out beautifully, much better than I expected, I was so elated when getting it out of the oven, and even more so when we tasted it!!! The reason I made it this week is because I have signed up to go on a course he runs next Thursday and I wanted to get some practice in first. I am really looking forward to the course and will post here to say how I get on if anyone is interested?
PS I would love to include pictures of my brioche but I don’t know how to do it!!! I’ll have to get someone to show me how.
