CHOCOLATE CHIP AND RAISIN BRIOCHE 

Breakfast ahoy !

The breakfast chefs shout out to the waiters in the coffee shop. I sit by the upper deck of the coffee shop, drawn by the aroma of the sweet breads, a perfect accompaniment to steaming hot coffee served on the table beside me felt an urge to ask for the same order to be served on my table too. A common human nature! Can’t help, but came to my table was complete bliss, perfectly baked fresh chocolate brioche buns and a large cup of cappuccino. Have it with  jam or just on its own and sip the coffee idly. Do read or listen to music and spend this quality “my time” which we ignore most times. It helps me to introspect,  resurrect life!
