Culinary termDefinition
 Also known by the names ‘Napoleon’, ‘vanilla slice’, and ‘custard slice’, and is a pastry whose origin is unknown. Its current form was influenced by improvements made by Marie-Antoine Carême.
 A delicate pastry dough used in many pastries. Basic ingredients usually only include butter, water, flour, and eggs.
 French for “windblown”, to describe its lightness. It is a small hollow case of puff pastry, formerly also called a patty case.
 This method requires a wet mixture to be whisked thoroughly and gently using a whisk. The method is generally used to make Swiss rolls and Genoese sponge cakes.
 The first step is to cream butter and sugar together. Once the butter and sugar are mixed, you can incorporate eggs slowly into the mixture. After that, you can sieve and add all the dry ingredients to the batter.
 A test done by taking a small sample of the dough and making a ball. Then it is stretched into a square until it becomes a thin film in the middle without breaking. The dough must be thin enough to pass light through it. If it is obtained without any tear, then the dough is ready.
 A German word, derived from the Middle High German word for “swirl”, “whirlpool” or “eddy”.
 To mix a substance(s) in a circular pattern using a spoon, spatula, or other such utensil.
 Also known as Vanilla pastry cream, it is a delicious, rich, creamy custard thickened with starch and eggs.

Question 7: Match the following Classical cakes, pastries, and breads with their respective origins.Satisfactory response
Yes ☐No ☐
 It is named after the city of Linz, Austria. It is the oldest cake ever to be named after a place. A recipe since 1696 in the Vienna Stadt- und Landesbibliothek is the oldest one known.
 A chef by the name of Pantarelli or Pantanelli, Catherine de’ Medici’s head chef, invented the dough in 1540, seven years after he left Florence with Medici and her court. He used the dough to make a gâteau and called it pâte à Pantanelli. Over time, the recipe of the dough changed, and the name changed to pâte à popelin, which was used to make popelins, named after Pantanelli’s successor Popelini. Popelins were common aristocratic desserts in the 16th century, and were flavored with cheese or citrus (for example lemon peel, orange blossom water, etc.). They were prepared from dough dried over a fire to evaporate its water, called pâte à chaud (literally meaning ‘hot pastry’).
 It was created accidentally at the Hôtel Tatin in Lamotte-Beuvron, Loir-et-Cher, 169 km south of Paris, in the 1880s. The hotel was managed by two sisters, Stéphanie and Caroline Tatin. There are contradictory stories concerning its origin, but the most common is that Stéphanie Tatin, who did most of the cooking, was overburdened one day. She started to make an old-fashioned apple pie but left the apples cooking in butter and sugar for too long. Smelling the burning, she tried to save the dish by putting the pastry base on top of the pan of apples, quickly finishing the cooking by putting the whole pan in the oven. After turning out the upside-down tart, she was surprised to find how much the hotel guests appreciated the dessert.
 Known by the names ‘Napoleon’, ‘vanilla slice’, and ‘custard slice’, it is a pastry whose exact origin is unknown. Its modern form was inspired by improvements made by Marie-Antoine Carême
 It is a layered pastry dessert made of filo pastry, stuffed with chopped nuts, and sweetened with syrup or honey. It was one of the most prevalent sweet pastries of Ottoman cuisine. Although the history is not well documented, its current form was probably developed in the imperial kitchens of the Topkapı Palace in Constantinople. The Sultan offered it to the Janissaries every 15th of the month of Ramadan in a ceremonial procession called the Baklava Alayı.
 The oldest know recipe is from 1697, a handwritten recipe contained at the “Wienbibliothek im Rathaus”. Whether as a type of sweet or else savoury layered pastry with a filling inside, it gained fame in the 18th century throughout the Habsburg Empire (1278–1780). Austrian cuisine was formed and inspired by the cuisines of many different peoples during the many centuries of the Austrian Habsburg Empire’s expansion. It is related to the Ottoman Empire’s pastry baklava, which came to Austrian cuisine from Turkish via Hungarian cuisine.
 According to Franz Sacher’s son Eduard, it was invented by Franz when he was an apprentice under Chancellor Metternich’s chef, one maître Chambellier. The story goes that Franz was required to create a novel cake when the chef was ill. The Metternich connection was probably invented by Eduard many years later, to appeal to Viennese “nostalgic for their imperial past”. It remains popular in Austria and worldwide.
 “It first appeared in its most primitive form in the eighteenth century, then experienced a number of refinements and variations before being (officially) given that name in 1920.” The word simply implies “wand”, “baton” or “stick”, as in magique (magic wand).
 A la Financière, an absolute classic of 19th Century fine dining and a dish created by Marie-Antoine Carême.
 It was chosen as the Republic of Ireland’s representative for Café Europe during the Austrian Presidency of the European Union in 2006, while the United Kingdom chose shortbread. It is believed that traditionally they were round and flat, usually as large as a medium-sized plate. They were made and baked on a grill (or girdle, in Scots), then cut into triangular sections for serving. Today, many would call the large round cake a bannock. In Scotland, the words are often used interchangeably.

Nos. Steps Correct order
1.Proofing – The dough goes into final fermentation.

5.Rolling – The portioned dough is shaped in smooth, round balls, giving it more strength, and allowing more air to be trapped.

7.Cutting and Scaling – the dough is divided or scaled into portions 
8.Storage – Baked breads are now stored at room temperature 
9.Scaling – Measure all the ingredients as per the recipe. 
10.Final shaping / Moulding – The dough is formed into its final shape, placed on a pan or mould that it will be finally baked in.

Once the butter and sugar are mixed, you can incorporate eggs slowly into the mixture. After that, you can sieve and add all the dry ingredients to the batter.
 A quick and simple method of baking. Fat and sugar ingredients are melted in a saucepan. Texture tends to be much heavier than other cakes and won’t have much aeration. Baking soda can be used to create a lighter texture. It is generally used to make Chocolate brownies and Gingerbread.
 The first step is to cut butter into small pieces. The second step is to rub the butter pieces along with the flour (which is sieved). Finally, add all the other ingredients and liquid to make the dough.
