Father and son duo Brett and Aidan poured their hearts out in the MKR kitchen. Cooper's Kitchen brought love to their meals, with their starter giving fig a go along with the blue cheese phyllo pastry. Let's have a look at more pastries.

Choux pastry

This is a very delicate pastry made using water, butter, flour, and eggs only and does not rely on a raising agent. The result is quite heavenly: like soft air pockets melting in your mouth.

Shortcrust pastry

This pastry is often used in pies, quiches, and tarts. It usually requires more flour than other pastries. It often crumbles in your mouth with just one bite.

Puff pastry

This is perhaps the most commonly known pastry and is often made in kitchens at home. It's very flaky and often best enjoyed hot out of the oven.

Phyllo pastry

This is a very thin pastry made by brushing oil on the different layers. Dishes such as baklava and samoosas are made from this pastry.
