Russian cigarettes presented to you by Delices and Gourmandises

Russian cigarettes are best to enjoy with coffee, tea, and hot milk. They can also be consumed with ice cream. One should not be mistaken by the name though. Although its name has the word Russian, the pastry was not created by Russians. Where does it come from then? Delices and Gourmandises will give you a brief explanation.

A pastry “made in Belgium” you can easily find at Delices and Gourmandises

It was invented in 1945 by a Belgian company called Delacre. The name is actually an antonomasia which means that the title Russian cigarettes or cigarettes Russes in French was originally a registered trademark but its success designated it to be used in everyday language. It is called as such due to its cigarette looking design but also because Russians are used to wrapping their cigarettes diagonally.
The Delacre company has been in the trade industry since 1891. Charles Delacre, its creator, was a French national living in Brussels. He was originally a pharmacist and in 1870, he decided to create a chocolate factory because chocolate was widely prescribed by pharmacists during that time period due to its toning and invigorating property.
He started producing pastries in 1891 in order to add a touch of diversity in his activity and also to reinforce his already successful company, marking the beginning of his company's spectacular journey.
You will easily find this kind of pastry in Delices and Gourmandises Catalogue.
