No secret that I love puff pastry. Perhaps the greatest thing is once you’ve made it, you have a launching pad for a host of easy yet elegant dishes–savory and sweet.
It’s not just for napoleons, palmiers, and sweet pastries. It’s also for a fantastic casual brunch for great friends you haven’t seen in ages. One friend you’ve known for years, in a former life when you were both teaching English in the Czech Republic, and his wife who takes beautiful, luminous pictures of your children. (Check out her fantastic work here, especially if you live in the Boston area, but even if you don’t!) Maybe I should get some photography tips from her, eh?
Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get a photo of the finished product. Take it as a testimonial!
And as a bit of housekeeping, this is another entry in the Modern Baker Challenge. Again, out of order, but I can’t just leave that puff pastry in the freezer without using it, can I?
