Pastries were first created by the ancient Egyptians. The classical period of ancient Greece and Rome had pastries made with almonds, flour, honey and seeds. The introduction of sugar into European cookery resulted in a large variety of new pastry recipes in France, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.The greatest innovator was Marie-Antoine Carême who perfected puff pastry and developed elaborate designs of pâtisserie.
We have created a little list of the most delicious pastry and deserts of the world, for you to feed your eyes and go running to the nearest bakery to get yourself one of these sweet wonders.
An éclair is an soft and sweet pastry made with choux dough filled with diverse flavors of cream and topped with icing. The dough is typically piped into an oblong shape with a pastry bag and baked until it is crisp and hollow inside. Once cool, the pastry is then filled with a vanilla-, coffee- or chocolate-flavoured custard (crème pâtissière), or with whipped cream; and then iced with fondant icing.Other fillings include pistachio- and rum-flavoured custard, fruit-flavoured fillings, or chestnut purée.
