How are your pastry skills? What types of pastry have you made? There has been some discussion of this topic recently in The CookingBites Cookalong: Tarte Tatin. There are many different types of pastry. Here are some of the best known: Choux pastry Filo pastry Flaky pastry Hot water crust pastry Puff pastry Shortcrust pastry Rough puff pastry Suet pastry Most can be made as vegetarian or vegan pastry, although puff pastry is more challenging as the right type of fat must be used. Gluten free is even more challenging, it seems. I enjoy making pastry but generally stick to short crust, rough puff or puff pastry. I'm now thinking that I must experiment more. How many types have you attempted?
