Fact of the Day: Gingerbread

While it's debated what counts as true gingerbread, the earliest forms came from outside of Europe. Gingerbread's origin in Europe is said to be the work of an Armenian monk named Gregory of Nicopolis who taught French Christians how to bake the gingerbread in the year 992.
