The Unique History of Flan, a World Traveled Dessert


With Cinco de Mayo approaching, we were trying find a delicious South of the Border dessert to make for a blog post. This led a topic of great debate in our kitchen. Where the heck does flan come from? They serve it at Mexican restaurants, we’ve all had it in Mexico, and yet the name in no way sounds Mexican. I was sure it was of Spanish descent, Tina, our graphic designer, attested to it being French, and Lucretia, our marketing specialist, swore it was Italian.

So I did some research and it turns out we were all kind of right.

Dessert: Flan

Pronunciation: According to the Mother Ship of all pronunciation websites, Forvo, you’re supposed to say “flayn,” as in it rhymes with “plan.” Glad that’s settled.

Origin of the Name: The name comes from the Old French word, “flaon,” from the Late Latin word, “fladon,” which is derived from the Old High German word “flado,” which means a flat cake or object.

History: Like many desserts, flan’s existence began during the Roman Empire. The Romans were the first to domesticate chickens and they found themselves in the middle of an egg surplus. So they used techniques they stole learned from the Greeks to develop new egg-based recipes. These recipes, as you can imagine, resulted in loads of dishes and desserts, including flan.

Back then, most versions of the dessert were savory rather than sweet and included flavors like eel sprinkled with pepper. But a few early recorded recipes contained the only sweetener of the day: honey. And as the Romans conquered basically all of Europe, their customs, beliefs, and recipes went with them. The sweet variety of flan gripped the newly vanquished lands and when the Empire fell in 476 CE, flan survived.

Of all the peoples introduced to this dessert, the Spanish were particularly taken with it (and were the first to top it with a sweet caramel sauce). Like the Romans before them, the Spaniards brought flan to new lands, when in 1518, the famous conquistador Hernán Cortés landed in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico.

The Mexicans took flan to a whole new level. They created coffee, chocolate, and even coconut flavors and the recipes became popular not only in Mexico, but the rest of Latin America.

We hope you enjoy this traditional, worldly dessert on Cinco de Mayo (or any time, really) and from all of us at the bakery, thank you for visiting!

A Brie(f) History of Cheese - Paul Kindstedt


Before empires and royalty, before pottery and writing, before metal tools and weapons – there was cheese. As early as 8000 BCE, Neolithic farmers began a legacy of cheesemaking almost as old as civilization. Today, the world produces roughly 22 billion kilograms of cheese a year, shipped and consumed around the globe. Paul Kindstedt shares the history of one of our oldest and most beloved foods.

Lesson by Paul S. Kindstedt, directed by Charlotte Cambon.

Horchata: The History of the Delicious Beverage


Orxata de xufa, the delicious milky beverage made from ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, barley or tigernuts (chufa nuts), better known as Horchata, varies in name and flavor from region to region. The sweet and infectious drink, which is served chilled or over ice, originated in Valencia, Spain, has become a favorite natural summertime refreshment throughout Europe and South America.

In Mexico, Guatemala and the U.S.
Taquerias often have large dispensing fountains, where the rich liquid rotates in the belly of the large containers, waiting to act as the perfect accompaniment to tacos, burritos and other fast food-style Latin food. In Mexico and Guatamala, Horchata is made with rice and cinnamon, and often with vanilla. The United States on the most part has adopted the rice-based or, less frequently used, morro horchata of Mexico, and horchata is sometimes available in grocery stores in powder form or is sold ready-made. Some places in the U.S .even offer Horchata Frappes.

in Honduras, El Salvador, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, and Venezuela
Southern Honduras and El Salvador use morro seeds, not rice, but includes the traditional tigernuts, as well as peanuts, almonds and cashews. It is strained before it is served. Other parts of Honduras and Nicaragua refer to horcata as semilia de jacaro, and it is made from jicaro seeds ground with rice and spices. Puerto Rico calls the drink horcata de ajonjoli, and uses ground sesame seeds, water, sugar, cinnamon sticks and evaporated milk; sometimes coconut milk, allspice, barley and lime zest is used. Venezuela uses sesame seeds, water and sugar; but, they also make chichi, a similar drink, is comprised of rice flour, sugar, water and an alcohol made from fermented corn flour. In Ecuador, they use an infusion of 18 herbs.

Horchata Word Origin from Catalan
In terms of etymology, the name derives from the Catalan word orxata, from ordiiata, because the drink was made from ordi (barley). There are farce tales regarding the development of the name, including one legend where Spanish Conquistador James I of Aragon visited the village of Alboraria for the first time, and partook of the sweet beverage, and allegedly proclaimed, "Açò és or, xata!" ("That's gold, darling!").

"The gold" is fairly easy to make at home, but does take patience in order to yield delicious results. There are thousands of recipes on the internet, adding and subtracting key ingredients, but there are also traditional recipes that are rumored to be quiet delicious: Find recipes HERE.

The History of Tamales - Glorious Food - One Minute History


Tamales originated in Meso-America. In times of war, masa, a corn-based dough was an easily portable food for the Mayan, Inca and Aztecs. The Tamale was served to the Spanish during the Inquisition, and eventually brought to what is now Robeline, Louisiana.

Some historians suggest U.S. soldiers learn to make tamales during the Mexican-American War. Others credit them to Native American cultures. But, most believe they made their way through the Mississippi Delta when migrant workers shared the fields with African Americans... who brought the ‘hot’ to the tamale inspiring "They're Red Hot" by Robert Johnson, later covered by Eric Clapton and The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The Annual Tamale Fiesta is created and the tamale debuts at the Chicago’s World Fair. Joey “Jaws” Chestnut sets a new world record and the First National Tamale Day is established. The tamale is a cultural staple with over 500 different styles served at holidays and celebrations.
