- Texture: brioche is known for its soft and fluffy texture, which can add a luxurious element to your meal. The airy texture also means that the bun won’t overpower the other flavors in your sandwich.
- Variety: if you’re looking to switch up your usual bread choice, brioche can offer a tasty and indulgent alternative.

Bread Pudding is a firm family favorite, and for good reason. Add a little je-ne-sais-quoi to your next family dessert with our recipe for Chocolate Brioche Bread Pudding. This will upgrade your regular recipe to a whole new level of decadence.
Why Use Brioche In A Bread Pudding?
Brioche has a slightly sweet flavor, which complements the sweetness of the custard in the bread pudding. The texture of brioche also allows it to absorb the custard mixture more easily, resulting in a moist and creamy pudding with a delicate, melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Additionally, the lightness and rich taste of our St Pierre Chocolate Chip Brioche Loaf brings out the sweetness of the chocolate, and you won’t be able to stick to just one serving!

Sandwiches are a staple, but they can get a bit boring. Switching from regular white bread to brioche is an easy and delicious way to take your sandwiches from boring to “magnifique”!
Why Use Brioche Instead Of Regular Sliced Bread In Your Sandwich?
The soft, fluffy texture of brioche bread is perfect for sandwiches, as it provides a delicate and pillowy base for the fillings. Unlike regular white bread, brioche bread is less likely to become soggy or fall apart when filled with juicy ingredients, such as tomatoes or cucumbers, making it ideal for a variety of sandwich combinations.
Additionally, the slightly sweet flavors of brioche bread can complement both sweet and savory fillings, allowing for endless sandwich possibilities. Whether you’re making a classic ham and cheese sandwich or a creative vegetarian sandwich with roasted vegetables and hummus, using brioche bread can add a touch of sophistication and indulgence to your lunch.
