Tver gingerbreads

Tver gingerbreads have long been a traditional treat and enjoyed popularity not only in Tver, but also in Europe. They could be of very different shapes and sizes, differing from others by their exquisite taste and absolute whiteness. A beautiful patterned gingerbread was obtained from a baker thanks to a skillfully carved out of wood special form. To make the ornament on the finished product convex, it was cut out on the boards in-depth. Painted complex gingerbread patterns by icon painters, after which the skillful master was accepted for the work. Two-headed eagles, terema, huge sterlets and sturgeons, horses, birds, flowers and trees of unusual shape, birds of Syrina, swans and horsemen were on the finished boards carved by the carver’s hands. The favorite gingerbread story was the image of fish and “sterlet wheel.” Even more loved the use of products depicting the military. Basically, it was a general in a cocked hat, with epaulettes and magnificent plumes, with “bent pretzel” hands and riding a horse. The chest of a brave warrior was decorated with crosses and stars.

In the XIX century Tver gingerbread were known to the whole world. Honey, mint, with almonds and candied fruits. Wedding and casual. Recipes of gingerbread were kept secret in special chests and were handed down by inheritance. It was not possible to reveal the secret of the ingredients of gingerbread. Now the legendary recipes of the Tver gingerbread are recreated-the favorite delicacy of the twentieth-century Tver. Legendary Tver gingerbread can be bought in hotels and shops of the city.
