Swee San knows how to make the kind of sandwich that lifts your spirit and satisfies your soul. She starts by baking a fresh brioche loaf. Then she cuts two thick even slices, and toasts them to a perfect golden brown (this is important!). Only then does she apply her carefully chosen toppings.

So needless to say, I was excited when Tania's sourdough brioches popped up in my inbox. Because if anyone knows how to do brioche right, it's probably her. These would be perfect spread with jam at breakfast, and they can also be rolled out into croissants.
