Gingerbread as we know it today, comes from the Chinese words ‘Mi-Kong’, literally meaning ‘bread of honey’.Gingerbread was consumed as early as the Xth century and was made from wheat flour, honey and sometimes flavored with aromatic plants. Ancient texts from the XIIIth century cite ‘Mi-Kong’ as having made up part of the food rations of the ‘Gengis Khan’ cavalry. The ‘Gengis Khan’ is reported to have passed on the food to the Arabs; and in the Middle Ages, during the crusades Westerners brought back the recipe and the essential associated spices.
