If a croissant was temperamental, then the brioche is the opposite in the stability and user-friendliness of it. It can be shaped in endless ways, filled with any filling, and baked or fried to create a wide range of desserts. It is one of the most versatile of doughs and something to keep in your back packet.–Chef Dominique Ansel
