Brioche Vendéenne is a French braided brioche.
The Brioche Vendéenne has been the pride of Vendeans since the Middle ages. Braided by hand, and gilded on the top, this soft, slightly sweet bread is flavoured with either brandy or orange blossom water. It is generally eaten for breakfast or with afternoon tea/coffee.
Apart from the Easter period, the Brioche Vendéenne was made for major family celebrations (communions, weddings, etc.).
