Legend of the wafer´s origin
The legend from the 19th century refers to a talented cook from the Premonstratensian monastery in Teplá behind the origin of spa wafers. As a dessert for unexpected guests he decided to use wafer tongs usually used to produce communion bread. He enriched simple dough made of water and flour with sugar and milk and sprinkled a delicious mixture of nuts, sugar, cinnamon and other delicate spices between the baked wafers. Then he baked the wafers together. The dessert was very popular and the recipe soon left the confines of monastery gates. The delicious sweet was alive.
