Where does the word "petit fours" come from?
"Petit Four" means "small oven" in French, which refers to the heat setting, not size, of the oven. 19th century chefs didn't use tiny ovens for these bite-size cakes; instead, they'd cook them as the coal oven cooled down from its high heat setting for cooking meals.
