If you’re averse to gluten-laden goodies, click away now. For real.
One of my guilty pleasures is watching chefs cooking and baking all kinds of foods on YouTube. As I have mentioned here numerous times before, ours is a family that enjoys cooking.
Recently I ran across a video featuring a chef, Richard Bertinet. He’s a French pastry chef and cookbook author whose style intrigued me. He was making these cinnamon buns and despite my very low-carb diet, I couldn’t resist trying them.
This is a different take on a traditional cinnamon roll. They not only shape differently than the traditional pastry, but the dough is much more rich and buttery. Very French!
This is not the kind of baking I would suggest as regular fare. These buns are more appropriate for special occasions such as Christmas breakfast or Easter brunch. They are just that decadent.
As always, taking the pictures was all kinds of fun. Getting a a decent shot in friendly light requires a bit of strategy.
I’m interested in getting my hands on chef Bertinet’s cookbooks. I hope my library has them so I can review them without commitment.
Happy Friday from my kitchen to yours!
