The world of cookies
ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS A COOKIE
The Italian word for cookie is biscotto, from the Latin “panis biscotus”, which means twice-baked bread. The double baking process helps to eliminate moisture, so that the product can be stored for long periods of time. The first records of cookies date back to ancient Roman times, when grain biscuits, or cookies, were supplied to the legionaries of the Roman fleet. Over time, the shape, taste and texture of cookies changed and, among the wealthy Romans, it was customary to serve such treats at the end of a meal, as a way to “cleanse” the mouth. Until 996, the year in which sugar arrived in Venice, the only sweetener being used was honey. This is also a primary ingredient in our modern-day production. Over the centuries, cookies became increasingly refined. In the mid-19th century, the first cookie factories were built in England, Italy, France and Belgium. Initially, the cookies were made by hand, then the production was converted into an industrial one featuring the use of machines.
