Recipe: Wreath Bread with Aromatic Herbs

Bread with aromatic herbs
January 21, 2012

Sometimes recipes are so satisfying that I don't know hot to describe how much they have been really appreciated.

Wreath Bread with Aromatic HerbsI will try saying that this wreath bread, baked for New Year's Eve, was pretty, soft and fresh.


Wreath Bread with Aromatic HerbsHere is a section: it is a soft white bread, with a green spiral which was a pity to cover when I served it with my Tuna Mousse with Aromatic Herbs and with soft cheese.


Ginger and aromatic herbsThese are the herbs for the filling: a bunch of parsley, chives garlic, sage and ginger.

I took inspiration from the recipe Garlic, herb and parmesan festive wreath bread, with slightly different ingredients, but the same idea.


I will bake this wreath for the next Christmas holidays... but I'm sure that I will bake it again well before then.

1 bunch of parsley
5 sage leaves
10 chives garlic (or chives) leaves
1 piece of ginger
half avocado

Knead all the ingredients for the dough and let rest for at least an hour.
Blend the ingredients for the filling until smooth.

GhirlandaRoll out the dough into a rectangle about 60x25 cm.
Spread the filling to the edges.

Put the bread in the baking pan.


GhirlandaMake 12 cuts about 4 cm away from each other, starting from the outer edge and cutting two-thirds of the way through.
Now lift every other section of dough, and turn inside.


GhirlandaLet rise for another hour, then brush with milk.
Bake in preheated 180° C (356 F) oven for about 30 minutes, until golden brown.
