“The croquette originated in France and it was in 1898 that Monsieur Escoffier, the founder of the classical French Cuisine, together with the help of Monsieur Philias Gilbert started to write down the recipe… With the input of different cultures, the original recipe has taken itself into many directions, different applications and ingredients. From the original beef croquette it branched out into, salmon croquettes, fish, chicken, vegetarian and many other versions of croquettes.”(Voorn)
