- Puff pastry
Making your puff pastry is time-consuming, so it is worthwhile producing a large batch and storing the excess in the freezer ready for use another day.
Puff pastry is used to make vol au vents, sweet or savoury piecrusts, traditional French sweet pastries such as mille feuille and pithiviers. It is a classic ingredient of beef wellington, salmon en croûte and pâté en croûte.
Sprinkle the trimmings with cheese and seeds and bake to make cocktail snacks
