Bagels, Croissants, Cappuccino and Shish Kabobs

So terrified were the Moslems at the Battle of Vienna 9 9/11/16830 that it was all over in three hours when they fled fearing that John Sobieski’s winged-horsemen were avenging angels.

Bagels were a new roll created by a baker to commemorate the rounded stirrups of John Sobieski’s valiant horsemen.

Croissants were also another baked good to mark the defeat of the Moslem who have a crescent moon as their symbol.  The name croissant is derived from the French for ‘crusades’ since the Christian forces were fighting a defensive war against the invading Moslem forces.

Cappuccino was concocted from the bags of coffee the fleeing Moslems left behind.  The brewer added cream and honey. The white foam on the brown brew was named Cappucino in honor of the Capuchin Abbot who led the Christian army into battle.  The Capuchin habit is brown with a white cowl.

A note on the Capuchins:  Since that battle, all the Holy Roman Emperors are buried in the Capuchin Monastery.  The last one to be buried there was Empress Zita (who died in exile in Royalston, Massachusetts.)

The shish kabob was the Moslems post crunch of battle souvenir.  In both the Seige of Vienna and the Battle of Vienna, reconnaissance troops would rip nursing babies from the arms of their mothers and impaled them on their swords in front of their horrified eyes!
