In Russia, the origin of this dessert is associated with the expulsion of Napoleon Bonoparte from Moscow. During the celebration of the 100th anniversary of this event, an interesting puff pastry cake soaked in cream appeared on the tables, it was triangular in shape, which resembled Napoleon's hat known to everyone.

In France and other countries, it is believed that Napoleon was still involved in this dessert, and moreover he invented it himself. According to one version, one of the confectioners wanted to please the emperor so much that he took an old recipe for a famous French pie, cut it into pieces and soaked in custard, as well as cream with strawberry jam.

  • Mille feuilles is a thousand layers. Just saying.

    Missed it by that much. 100 is a hundred

    1000 is a thousand. But who’s taking time to count them up. Just enjoy 😊
