Brioche Pasquier Autumn Childrens Picnic


Brioche is a pastry of French origin that is akin to a highly enriched bread, and whose high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb. It is "light and slightly puffy, more or less fine, according to the proportion of butter and eggs." Wikipedia
 Brioche Pasquier is a French Bakery that make a range of Brioche using traditional methods and use Levin in their dough. The techniques used to create these selection of delicious Brioche are the same as those used in 1936 when the bakery first opened. 
Their range consists of Pain au Lait with chocolate chips, Pain au Lait, Pain au Chocolat, Sliced Brioche Loaf, Croissant, Pitch chocolate, Pitch choc chip, Pitch Milk chocolate. Pitch is an individually wrapped snacking brioche filled with chocolate or strawberry. They are free from preservatives, artificial colours and hydrogenated fats. 

I was sent a sliced Brioche Loaf and a packet of the Pitch Milk chocolate rolls together with a voucher to purchase additional Ingredients to create a Picnic. I created a Brioche Pasquier Autumn Children’s Picnic which consisted of  Brioche peanut butter bunny sandwiches, Brioche cheese and cucumber triangles,Chocolate Brioche and strawberry jam pops with chocolate sprinkles,Strawberry and cream mini brioche Victoria sandwich cakes and Brioche Strawberry milkshake.
