Culinary origins – the history of garlic confit.
The term “confit” comes from the French word for preserved. Over time, the word has come to mean more than just preservation in fat.
The history of garlic confit can be traced back to the Middle Ages. Recipes for meat preparations have been found in cookbooks such as Le Viandier de Taillevent and Le Menagier de Paris written in the 14th century. Garlic confit was served extensively throughout France during World War II, when it supplemented meat shortages by giving a strong flavor without meat.
