Episode 14 – Hotel Auberge du Pere Bise – Brioche, Classic French yeast bread

“On the waterfront with mountain views”

The Pastry Chef : Kevin Gondre

Kevin grew up in the family pastry shop. From a very young age, he fell in love with the captivating smell of sugar buns coming out of the oven every morning, or the ultra-smooth ice cream out of the turbine in midsummer, and indulged in rich chocolates as Christmas approached. His entire universe was synonymous of ‘gourmandise’.
After several years working in the family business, he left to work in more prestigious establishments such as Maison Boulud and the Ritz Carlton in Montreal, L’auberge du Père Bise by Jean Sulpice or Le Pavillon Ledoyen by Yannick Alléno.
But the memories of his childhood are still vivid and this is why he prepared for you a delicate brioche recipe ready to eat as soon as they are out of the oven, as he did himself when he was little.

List of the ingredients:

500g Flour or 4 cups
90g Sugar or 1/2 cup
10g of Salt or about 2 teaspoons 20g fresh yeast or about 4 teaspoons 255g eggs or about 5 eggs
