Today I decided to cook (actually, bake!) something a bit different from what I normally do. I recently saw the Grand Budapest Hotel movie and loved it, and one of the key plotlines to the movie involves a French pastry. The French pastry, referred to as Mendl’s pastry, looked pretty complicated but really delicious. I found the recipe online and decided to give it a go!
This recipe was definitely out of my comfort zone. I’m not a huge fan of baking because it usually takes a long time and is very exact – and this recipe was no exception. Every component took a good bit of time and it was definitely a challenge. However the pastry was super tasty and looked beautiful. I was pretty proud of how much it looked like the pastry from the movie!
Thanks for watching, see you next time!Lizzie Marie
