War In The History Of Patisserie
We presume that you have read the headline twice before you are reading the body! Along with that, are you still wondering about the war in the history of a dessert? Yes, it happened in reality. France and Mexico had started this war. You would be aware of the fact Mexico used to riot and fight against the government when Spain had captured the country. The Mexican rebels often damaged the properties of the government. Once, they had a rampage over the bakery of a French pastry chef. After independence, the Mexican government had refused to compensate the baker.
So, the baker went away to France and informed the things to the French king. Mexico was already indebted to France at that time. They have not been able to pay the debts for the Texas revolution. So, France took the problems of the baker sympathetically. They had started threatening Mexico for clearing the debt and compensate the baker. But the Mexican government ignored the threat, and there was a war between these two countries.
The First Pastry
Patisserie has a history in ancient times. The people from ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt used to make pastries. People currently consider them to be the pioneer of patisserie. All of them used to have a filo-type pastry. You can make this type of bread by mixing oil and flour. Along with that, they had created fruit pastries, honey cakes, dumplings, sweet tarts, and many more. They used to stuff the dumplings with nuts and dates.
Invention Of Croissant
When it comes to the invention of croissant, we can find the influence of Australian patisserie in it. An Australian baker had started his business in Vienna. The people of Paris had begun to rush to that store. They were excited when they had seen the advertisement in the newspaper. Ultimately, the display of the shop had increased the excitement in them as well. When he went away after closing his business, the local bakers of Paris had started imitating his store. Even, they had begun imitating his preparations as well. He used to make a puffed pastry. The Parisian bakers named it as croissant, and this was the history of its invention.
