Pretzels, Beer Steins & German Beer have become iconic symbols of a good German celebration or party. But did you know that the first recipe come from Italy? A common story for the origin of pretzels is that they were created by a monk around 610 in Italy. According to one source, the monk would bake dough strips which he would then fold into a shape that resembled a child crossing his arms in prayer “pretiola” (“little rewards”).
