The history of the origin of pies

The first meal, which in its filling and form resembles a pie, was prepared by the ancient Egyptians. Cooks, trying to satisfy the wishes of their Pharaoh, baked honey, nuts and fruits in the dough and gave it a primitive form. This fact is confirmed by the drawings found by archaeologists on the walls of the tombs.

The ancient Greeks often baked meat in flour and water, making it juicy and rich in flavor. This ancient recipe resembles a modern meat pie.

According to some historians, they began to prepare pies in Russia much earlier than in European countries. The undeniable proof of this is the entry in the diary of Adam Olearius, which he did after returning from Muscovy. In his notebook it is said that people in Russia are greeted and treated to guests with a pie - a wonderful national dish.

In the old days on the territory of modern Russia, young wives baked fish or meat pie to treat their husband's relatives and demonstrate culinary talents.

A classic variant of an open pie is Italian pizza with fruit, fish, vegetable or meat filling. For the first time began to prepare this original cake in ancient Rome.Lucullus, the famous commander of those times, constantly treated guests to an open rounded pie baked on charcoal. Nowadays, barbecues are cooked this way, and in those days people managed to make pastries.

Modern step-by-step recipes for making pies differ substantially from ancient recipes, but something mysterious and unexplored in them remains as before.
