About This Quiz

For a food to be a pastry, it needs certain ingredients. The base would need to have flour, water and some kind of shortening. The difference between each pastry is the way it is made, the ingredients that go in after, and the way it is cooked. Whether milk, sugar, eggs or fruit are added can be the difference between a pie and a choux. But we're not asking you to list the ingredients of some of the most popular pastries in the world because that would be way too difficult. Instead, we want to see if you can name the pastry if we tell you what country or region it is from. 

Sure most people think that all pastries are from France, but you'd be surprised to know that your favorites come from Spain, Japan, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Canada, and even Australia. We're also going to show you pictures of what the pastry looks like, so you can make a better guess as to what it could be. If that wasn't enough, we're also going to give you hints to help you out if you get stuck.

So, let's stop stalling. It's time to see if you can do more than just put the pastry where your mouth is.
