Palm Leaf Wrap
We are frequent visitors to an animal sanctuary near Bristol. It is home to a large number of exotic species which feel at home surrounded by palm trees. The large number of trees provide enough shelter to make such a sanctuary possible. While strolling through this tropical paradise recently I was inspired by the straight leaves of the palms and thought of using brioche in two colours. This is the result. Drape it over your shoulders for effect or wrap up for warmth.
