Jam Portrait: Peach Brioche

Hello fellow jam-lovers!

I apologize for my brief hiatus. There are several exciting reviews that are in the works, in which I will be tasting jam from the Blue Chair Jam Company, We Love Jam and Emily G’s Jams of Love. Watch this space.

For the moment, however, I leave you with a jam portrait. After moving away from the Bay Area, I felt a significant lack of jam in my life. Recently, though, I have found an amazing little bakery in our neighborhood called the Sofra Bakery and Cafe. The pastries there are inspired by the owner’s Turkish heritage. I was particularly impressed by the simit, a sesame seed bun that I loved when I visited Istanbul last.

The owners love jam and often include it in their pastries. My favorite pastry was a brioche, with peach jam in it.
