National Pastry Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Pastry Day - Today is National Pastry Day!

Pastries have been around since 2600 B.C.

The Egyptians made doughnut-like pastries out of crude flour and honey.

In the 7th century, pastry-making developed as a culinary art form in the Middle East. It spread to Europe after the Crusades, and French and Italian chefs developed their own version of the recipes and experimented with new techniques.

There are now many different types of pastry including shortcrust, flaky, puff, choux, and phyllo.

Make a trip to your favorite local bakery to pick up your favorite kind of pastry in honor of National Pastry Day!
