|Pastries. It's More Yummy in Albay, Philippines (Photo by Angelo Cantero)|
Pastries go back to the ancient Mediterranean with almost paper-thin, multi-layered baklava and filo. Northern Europe took on pastry-making after the Crusaders brought it back from the Mediterranean. French and Italian Renaissance chefs eventually perfected the Puff and Choux pastries, while 17th and 18th century chefs brought new recipes to the table. These new pastries included brioche, Napoleons, cream puffs, and éclairs.
In this photo, one of the famous Albay product, the Pili, is added to pastry resulting into a one-of-a-kind yummy pastry... the Pili Roll.
