Chocolate Brioche Sourdough Buns

Soon after opening we got asked for croissants a lot. A few months later we were still getting asked for them so we did what all reasonable business owners did and invested in 2 pieces of equipment and embarked on the (not insignificant) task of developing a from-scratch croissant process. (If you’ve ever tried making […]
