I know when enclosing the butter into the detrempe to make the pastry is the first step before rolling and turning but heres were I'm not sure.When your pastry is done theres 729 layers of butter between 730 layers of dough which gives you 1459 layers (as it seems to me) Mille Feulle of course means "thousand leaves" I multiplied everything times 3 at each turn to come up with that number. Is that correct?
I want to be sure of this # because it will be part of one of my quiz's in regional French Cuisine. The books I have at home don't give an exact number.
TIA for any help :)
PS, for those who wonder, i'm teaching the class, not a student trying to cheat :D
