The history behind gingerbread
of spices dating back to Ancient times
Spicy gingerbread blends
were used as far back as Ancient times by the Egyptians who made bread from spices
and honey. In the Middle Ages, in China spiced honey bread was called “Mi-Kong”,
and was rationed out to Chinese soldiers in Genghis Khan’s army when conquering
China. Little by little, the recipe spread to the Arabic world and travelled
to the Western world with the Crusaders.
history of gingerbread is linked to the town of Dijon
Legend has it that
Margaret of Flanders, Duke Philip the Bold’s wife, was very partial to gingerbread. Apparently, she never
went anywhere without her own little stash. Dozens of bakers throughout the
town of Dijon made gingerbread, up until the Second World War. Nowadays,
there’s only one left: Mulot et Petitjean who are renowned for their
specialty, and have kept their traditional recipe over the ages.
Dijon gingerbread has
a slightly different recipe as it uses fortified wheat flour and aniseed.
