Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Today is Pastry Day

09 December is Pastry Day.

It seems pastries are not new, with first apparently dating back into ancient times when the l ancient Romans and Greeks made filo-style pastries as meals and treats. The main ingredients in hot countries were flour, oil, and honey.

Moving forward to medieval times, things got more serious when pastry chefs invented themselves and used shortening and butter to make a thicker, more robust pastry, and pastry became quite a serious business, with demand for pies and sweets becoming high amongst both royalty and peasants.

This say seems to be dedicated to sweet pastries, so pick your favourite, and enjoy.

Danish pastries aren’t actually my favourite, but that means I can really enjoy them when I get treated to really good ones.
