"solilemme"should not link to "Sally Lunn" without questioning the claim of invention[edit]

This article has the sentence "He is credited with the inventions of gros nougats[6] and grosses meringues, croquantes, made of almonds and honey, and solilemmes.[7]" and solilemme is linked to the Sally_Lunn_bun#Origins article about a similar roll in the UK called a Sally Lunn. However, the Sally Lunn article cites evidence that the Sally Lunn predates the French Revolution, so it would not make sense that Careme invented it. I don't know if this throws into question the link between these two rolls, or whether Careme invented it, and it doesn't seem from the discussion of sources in the Sally Lunn article that anybody actually knows either. 2603:8001:9500:9E98:0:0:0:9A7 (talk) 18:49, 3 December 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Tim riley, I've added italics to croquembouches, which I think is correct (but revert if not); I've left vol-au-vents, profiteroles and mille-feuilles as non-italicised as I think they're all common in English so don't need it (if I've remembered the MOS properly!) Asto "tourier", I have no idea, so I'll leave it to your judgement. SchroCat (talk) 17:03, 14 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you, SchroCat! (While I was drafting, I smiled to find myself having to italicise pâtissier (which is not an English word according to the OED) but not patisserie (which is). Tweaks are much appreciated. As will be those from any other editors. Tim riley talk 17:18, 14 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
