This year, Santa Claus brought something shiny and yet practical on his trip to our house. The color was my idea, but ice-blue is considered very fashionable in the North Pole too!
Now this gift represents more than just a revved up new kitchen appliance. I consider this a milestone because I promised myself after the fifth book collaboration was done, I would buy myself a new standing mixer, something that I’ve been coveting since culinary school.
The first recipe that popped into my mind was brioche. Warm, golden brown brioche with lots of kneading involved – but now I could let my mixer do the work! So if you have a standing mixer, let your mixer do most of the work with these recipes, or use a dough blade fitted in a food processor.
