After weeks of testing and refining their recipe and hunting for the perfect name, Peterbrooke unveils the Broissant- a croissant-donut hybrid. Made in-house by pastry chefs, the chocolate kitchen is putting its own spin on the pastry taking the nation by storm.
Each batch of dough takes over four hours to create, a labor intensive process of rolling out dough and sealing in layers of butter. The more layers, the flakier the dough.
As if buttery, flaky layers of fried dough weren’t enough to sway us, Peterbrooke tops the creation with their artisan chocolate, caramel, local produce, bacon and whatever else they can whip up. The Broissant will be available for $4.00, including toppings. The smaller counterpart is the Pepite (French for nuggets) and will be available in an order of three, for $3.50.
Maybe the best news is there is no need for a “Hot Doughnuts Now” sign, as each Broissant and batch of Pepites will be made to order and served warm until Peterbrooke is sold out for the day.

I enjoy writing about and participating in the food, wine and culinary scene in Central FL in my off hours. I started Orlando Uncorked, a local non profit wine education group, to promote the approachability of wine and donated our event proceeds to local area charities. The popular wine tasting events grew into structured wine classes and finally, food and wine writing for Orlando Home & Leisure Magazine and The Seminole Chronicle. Thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to join in on my fun, follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Untappd, Drync & Vivino @WineChix . Cheers!
