An Insight Into Pastry

Depending what you wish to use it for, there are many different types of pastry.  Sweet or savoury, thick or thin, wheat free or not.  It is all out there. These are the types of pastry I am most familiar with but there are more. Try searching the internet for pastries from different parts of the world.

All pastry is made from fat, flour and water.  It is the type of fat or the way it is made that makes it different.

Measurement Conversions Poster

Hello Instabakers,

We have a nice little treat for you today.  Some of our members have commented on the measurements in the recipes being different e.g. cups/ozs/lbs.

In order to help people with the conversions, we have created this lovely poster.  Feel free to download it, print it and hang it up in your kitchen.  Even, email it to all your friends so they can have one too!!

Basic Equipment for Baking

Here is a question people always ask when they start out baking for the first time…”what do I need to bake a cake?”.    To bake a simple cake you only need a few things to achieve this.  You do not need a fancy food mixer or crazy shaped cake tins.

I have created two blogs posts, the first being the most basic things you need.  The second will be on advanced and “nice to have” tools for your kitchen.  The second blog post will be published in a couple of weeks, so look out for that.

Easter Food around the World part 1

Easter is now a few days away.  If you saw our previous post, you may have watched the amazing video showing how to decorate some eggs.  The video showed a tradition that is handed down to each generation of this small town.  The outcome of the decoration is just amazing.  The skill and patience required is phenomenal.

We thought it would be interesting to show people what traditional foods other countries cook for their Easter celebrations.  We have created a 2 part post (today/tomorrow), that will show you these other dishes and their source.
