Answer: Contrary to belief, the fortune cookie associated as a Chinese invention is a fallacy. In 1914, the Japanese-American named Makoto Hagiwara of the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco, California, introduced the first fortune cookie. A number of immigrant families in Los Angeles, mostly Japanese, have also laid claim to inventing the fortune cookie. However a federal judge of the Court of Historical Review determined that the cookie originated in San Francisco and recognized Makoto Hagiwara as its inventor.
