France- Croquette

posted 1 Sep 2016, 04:58 by Marta Conterio


The first written document about the croquettes dates back to 1691, when a cook of Louis XIV, king of France, leaves written a recipe that combines truffle with chicken crumbs and cheese and entitled "croquette". The onomatopoeic origin of the word comes from the French "croquer" (crackle). Our country came a couple of centuries later, adopting the name croqueta.
