L'Olga (French pastry)

(1/1)

PAGE:
Hello,

In 1896, Tsar Nicholas II and the Empress came to France with Grand Duchess Olga. The little girl had a great success, and a French patissier invented a commemorative recipe to his name: L'Olga.

I found this recipe in the Journal des patissiers-biscuitiers (page 30) of 1899.
