Do You Think The Fortune Cookie Is From China?

Do you know the real story behind the origin of the Fortune Cookie? Decide for yourself. Surprise! Even though you'll see them in many countries, you won't find any in China. It was not originated in China at all. Fascinating! They are apparently of Japanese origin, and may have been invented in San Francisco Tea Garden and/or Los Angeles.

You'll find all this information in the The New York Times' site. There is a good article called "Solving A Riddle Wrapped in a Mystery".


There is another short version from the "Chinese Historical and Cultural Project's site"

Fortune Cookie
