The Origin of Desserts and Desserts Coloring Pages
The English word “dessert” appeared in the seventeenth century, derived from the French verb desservir. But the concept has changed a lot since then.
For many people, a real dinner wouldn’t be complete without dessert. The tradition of ending a meal with something sweet originated in France. French culinary scholar Maryann Tebben explains that French desserts have been around for centuries, but it has changed a lot during that time.

French cookbooks from the Middle Ages and Renaissance don’t have desserts. Instead, they include recipes for entremets — served in the middle of the main course — that can be sweet or savory.
The word “dessert” emerged in the seventeenth century, derived from the French verb desservir, which means “to clear the table” in English. Table etiquette dictates that napkins and tablecloths be changed before the last meal. At that moment, a delicate fruit dish was served. In a polite context, this snack was known as “le fruit”, but the elite changed the name to “dessert”. After the French Revolution, the aristocratic “fruit” was completely replaced by “dessert”.
So, what did everyone eat for dessert at the end of the official meal? According to Tebben, in the 17th-18th centuries, mainly fruit dishes, often made with jams and preservatives. Hosts may also serve cookies, macaroons, meringues, or frozen desserts.
Gradually, though, the taste of the dessert became less important than the visual presentation. Elegant metal and glass construction items are used to store apples or plums to add beauty to the dessert. Or, the meticulously handcrafted decorations from the street become the centerpiece of dessert displays and may not be edible. Dessert specialists in the 18th century must have knowledge of architectural design and be able to recreate it with glue.
Origin of “dessert”
Tebben describes one such craftsman, who crafted Louis XV’s severed head, a fight scene with soldiers and cannons, and kicked Gibraltar with sugar and it was all edible. But it is hard to imagine a diner eating a soldier by road.
During the revolution, the sugar crisis made it politically impossible for the elite to accept sculpted desserts decorated with sugar. Instead, the parties serve individual desserts, with common names and forms – creating a collective historical imprint rather than a single, specialized visual effect.
In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, technology and commerce also opened up more opportunities for populist sweets. Sugar is more readily available, and mechanical cooling can keep butter at the right temperature, making baking simpler. Large parties can still feature visually appealing desserts – such as the three-tiered, castle-shaped cake with a jam lake and the chestnut boats depicted in Madame Bovary.
Especially, diners can fully eat this work of art. In the late nineteenth century, tempting and delicious desserts such as macaroons, cream cakes, and fruitcakes were a small luxury used as a special treat even by the lower classes. . Of course, sugar is cheap enough these days that versions of French biscuits are mass-produced and sold to people all over the world.
