#GuiltyPleasure Bread!



Bread, the staple of many, has become a thing of shame. If you dare pack a regular sandwich to work, lunchtime will be spent lurking below your desk. If you entertain, you make sure to have some gluten-free, carb-free alternative on the table – and usually, you have it all left at the end of the party. These holidays, throw all caution to the wind and enjoy the beauty of guilty pleasure bread along with a glass of one of our fine Leopard’s Leap wines.

Try our recipe for Brioche, it makes 2 loaves of 450 g or 12 dinner rolls, so make sure you get some other rebels to enjoy it with you!
