Puff Pastry Sample Video
"I am going to make the Palmier, the Framboisier, which is almost like a Palmier but is cut in a different way and the Papillon which is made by twisting the Puff Pastry. Puff Pastry has four turns not five and you do the last roll in sugar instead of flour. I’ve got a little bit of caster sugar and normal sugar, you need a fair bit of sugar and I do the same roll instead of turning it I do exactly the same thing because they have to grow a certain way in the oven, you will see."
