BESIDES its staple of classic and innovative breads, pastries and confections, The French Baker offers a number of seasonal baked products on special occasions such as Christmas. This year, it continues its tradition of Christmas celebration with a Gingerbread House, Classic Fruitcake, Pure Danish Butter Cookies, and a surprisingly good recent discovery of mine, Brioche Bordelaise.
The 454-gram Classic Fruitcake (P510) is studded with cherries and nuts.
Inspired by the age-old tradition of French baking, the Brioche Bordelaise (P560) is like a festive Christmas wreath. It looks overly sweet, with its “frozen” sugar drips, but bite into it and it is just right. No sweetness overload.
These are available at all The French Baker branches and are also available for delivery via www.thefrenchbakeronline.com.
