A Return to LovelinessMaking Brioche Inspired by a movie My husband and I, when we first met discovered our love for old musicals. The first movie we talked about with each other over the phone, while watching, was ‘The King and I‘. Still, one of our all time favorites. Last week, I checked out ‘An American in Paris‘ from our local library. I have always loved this movie.Set in France, beautiful songs and dancing by Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, who is still making movies today. This was Leslie Caron’s first movie, Gene Kelly had noticed her some three years earlier, when she was 17 as she was dancing in a production with a local French ballet company. In a few of the scenes in this movie, Gene Kelly is being served Cafe’ Au Lait with warm Brioche…I have never made Brioche before, so I thought I’d give it a try. A rich bread recipe containing eggs and butter, Brioche is a bread that can be served alone with butter or frosted. Today, I am enjoying a lovely Brioche with hot coffee and cream. Now, to go along with the movie inspiration, I chose creamy white dishes - I wish I had a Cafe’ Au’ Lait set like the one used in the movie. So beautiful! Just look at those beautiful Brioche. I didn’t do a good job getting the button top – but, I so loved this recipe that I know I’ll make it again. This bread is so versatile. You can serve the bread as is – with a pat of butter, as in the movie. You can take these lovely, slightly sweet rolls an d make them all the more sweet by adding icing.
Do you like musicals…have you ever made Brioche. If not, I’d definitely recommend the recipe linked above -
