Where does the word "petit fours" come from?
"Petit Four" means "small oven" in French. But it doesn't mean a really small oven - it refers to the heat setting. The lower heat, cooling phase that old French ovens went through was perfect for baking mouth-watering tiny pastries, and thus, petit fours were born.
Are petit fours desserts?
