Flaky Pastry Patties

Flaky Pastry Patties are frequently confused with puff pastry, although the two are not the same. Puff pastry is the type of pastry that is brown on the exterior and peels away in thin white layers all the way through (made by sandwiching a layer of fat between layers of pastry and then folding it over on itself multiple times).

Island Delight’s Flaky Pastry Patties

Our flaky pastry is more rustic or ‘home made’. We create them with a rough, short mix that relies on discrete particles of fat remaining in the finished pastry paste. After that, they rise during baking. It’s the pastry that leaves crumbs – there is no way you can eat it without being noticed, but it’s tasty! Our goods also have a characteristic yellowish colour. This is due to the turmeric extract that is contained within. The traditional origins of this were basic economics: after cooking the curry filling and allowing it to cool, the beef fat would rise to the top and harden. Therefore, conveying the turmeric from the curry powder within. This fat would then be carefully removed and utilised in the pastry as shortening.

At Island Delight we have a wide range of flaky patties to choose from. From our Halal Chicken and Lamb to our Spicy Vegetable Flaky Pastry suitable for vegetarians and vegans. There is something here for everyone. In addition, all of our Flaky Pastry Patties are made with Jamaican recipes, therefore they are a real taste of the Caribbean!
