DECEMBER 8, 2023: Brioche Snowflake Bread

Date: Friday, December 8, 2023

Time: 11a - 3p

Cost: $150 per single-entry ticket


We are so excited to learn about this unique brioche-style bread that is perfect for the holidays! Katya Lyukum is bringing this classic Ukrainian brioche recipe to the mill to teach you how to make Snowflake Bread. This recipe is endlessly riffable for sweet and savory applications, and can be shaped in myriad ways. Pies, braided and intricately decorated loaves of sweet bread, rolls — this bread can do it all! It is perfect for holiday gatherings or as a thoughtful gift for friends and family (we generally prefer our gifts edible over here at Mill).

The core of this class will focus on mastering enriched doughs, which incorporate dairy and egg to enhance the flavor and texture of bread. Katya is an expert on bread formulas and mixing methods for enriched doughs, and she will teach you how to avoid common pitfalls of brioche-style breads like dough temperature, resting periods, and proofing times. The Snowflake Brioche recipe you will learn yields a light, fluffy, nutty, and delicately sweet bread with centerpiece status, on account of its braided shape and color-contrasting filling. Katya's recipe features white poppy seeds that enhance the delicate flavor of the loaf. Generally known as less sweet than their blue or black counterparts, white poppy seeds add a unique visual component and distinct flavor to the glossy brown exterior of this bread. This brioche is braided, then filled with an almond-poppy filling before being dusted with delicate white poppy seeds, so come ready to learn unique and adaptable bread-shaping skills!

  • learning more about enriched doughs
  • mastering unique shaping techniques
