Monique Folklore: about two German words (20) RE: Folklore: about two German words 13 Mar 21


Austrian "Kipferl" are said to be the origin of croissants Cf.English Wiki and French Wiki -The Viennese bakers made them in the shape of a crescent moon to celebrate their victory over the Ottomans whose symbol it is.
Croissants as we know them now are a later invention but based on the original ones -which doesn't mean they're healthier!
