Did you know?
Fortune cookies are actually not Chinese. According to San Francisco’s Court of Historical Review, the cookies were most likely invented by Makoto Hagiwara, a prominent Japanese immigrant who designed the city’s Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. They’re believed to have been based on a traditional regional recipe for tea cakes that used to be sold in Japan called omikuji. Later, during the Japanese internment of World War II, the cookies began to be sold in Chinese restaurants as a means of drawing in American customers, and have been popularly associated with Chinese-American food ever since.
