The many anecdotes about the origin of the pretzel is witness to its popularity and the infatuation it arouses. The shape of the pretzel undoubtedly evokes "crossed arms". Hence the first legend perpetuated until today:
First legend: In the year 610, a monk inspired by the folded arms of his classmates at the time of prayer, would have worked leftover dough in the shape of crossed arms.
Second legend: The following story, however, is better known: in 1477, a baker of the king’s court would have cooked his bread so badly that he was thrown into the dungeon. For such a crime, the verdict was public execution. But the baker was allowed to escape the sentence if he invented, within three days, a loaf "through which the sun would shine three times". The baker then imagined what is known in the profession as a "decorated bread", that is to say handmade without mold. Crossing the two ends of a dough ribbon, he formed three holes - and thus saved his head!
The brine that covers the pretzel was also born in a fortuitous way: asleep near the hot oven, the baker's cat would have knocked over a plate containing the pretzels that were to be put in the oven. They would have landed in a basin filled with boiling brine, actually prepared to season dishes. There was no time for the baker to remake the dough, so he decided to bake the pretzels covered with brine.
Third legend: One day a king's minister was having breakfast in an inn. The pretzels that were served to him had a very different taste from the sweet pretzels of the carnival because the baker would have mistaken bowls and instead of coating his pretzels with a sugar icing, he would have smeared with a solution of baking soda, normally used to clean the oven plates!
Fourth legend: In the 17th century, the interlocking loops of the pretzel became the symbol of undying love. The legend has it that in 1614 in Switzerland which happens to be the country of origin of masterbaker André Cornu , royal couples would have used a pretzel in their wedding ceremonies in order to seal the bond of matrimony, and that this custom could have been the origin of the sentence “tying the knot.”
Today the Cornu Family from Champagne in Switzerland and their latest brand La Fabrique blends quality and authenticity with perfect harmony. Some recipes go back to 1934, and were created by masterbaker André Cornu.
