"I bought Nancy Marchant's book a few years ago but felt too intimidated of this style to give it a shot. Though her book is excellent, I learn so much better when seen in action, as opposed to still shots, so I was very happy to see her featured here on Craftsy! With her clear demonstrations, I picked up the method very quickly. Her style is straightforward and even-paced. She covers everything including how to fix mistakes, blocking, etc. You can tell she is a Brioche Master! Great class!"
