National Pastry Day

We don’t know about you, but we’ve never met a pastry we didn’t like. That’s why we’re thrilled to celebrate National Pastry Day on December 9th.

Pastries date back to ancient times: the ancient Egyptians made pastry dough out of grain meal and flour and sweetened it with honey, and the ancient Greeks and Romans made sweets out of paper-thin pastry dough (the predecessor to what we now know as phyllo dough).

Pastries traveled to Europe in medieval times, where they added fats like butter and shortening to make a sturdier dough.

You’ll find pastries in pretty much every culture you can think of, but pastries became incredibly refined in French kitchens during the 18th century.

There’s a reason we think of France as the pastry capital of the world. Today there are countless types of pastries out there, and we’ll take one of each, please.
