National Dessert Day

National Dessert Day!

 

The word "dessert" comes from the French word desservir, which literally means "to clear the table." This is due to the fact that dessert is served after the main course has been cleaned. Dessert's sweetness, on the other hand, existed long before it was given a name. Ancient civilizations would offer dried fruits and honey to their gods as a form of adoration. Plakous was a sweet bread prepared with nuts and honey that was nearly cake-like in appearance in Ancient Greece. Pie is thought to have been originated by the Ancient Greeks, as Aristophanes describes sweetmeats and pastries stuffed with fruit in his plays.
