Braids and Other Fancy Shapes
As I mentioned on Instagram yesterday, though choreg is technically an Easter bread, Armenians make it pretty much whenever a special occasion comes around, including at Christmastime. (If you want to make the one pictured above, the recipe is located here.)
That choreg was made using a simple three-strand braid, something that anyone can pull off easily. I’m going to share a za’atar wreath bread soon that looks complicated to make, but is actually a snap.
What are some of your favorite fancy-pants ways to gussy up breads through shaping (easy or complicated)? Share links to online versions if you can find them!
