Dessert aristocrats

It is not known when, where and by whom was invented the recipe of ice cream. But history knows that fruits and berries in the snow frozen in the times of Alexander the great. With snow in the mountains sent slaves who are specially trained for fast running — so the snow has time to melt. Of course, ice cream in the modern sense of the word treats of the ancient Greeks was not — it was more of a low-fat frozen desserts: fruit with the cooled finely grated sweet ice, frozen syrups, infusions and juices, sherbet and fruit ice.

In 1295 Marco Polo brought to Europe the recipe for the unknown dessert to cool which was used not only snow and ice, but also nitrate. Product in the mold was placed in water (then the water dissolved nitrate) or in the ice with salt. After that, internal and external forms began to rotate, which contributed to a more rapid freezing of the product without the formation of large crystals.

This dish immediately became popular, and no ice cream there was not one formal dinner, like at the Palace and aristocrats.

Later Catherine de Medici brought to France his cook who could make delicious ice cream. Advisers to the king of France immediately demanded the issuance of recipe and technology of cooking wonderful treats. The recipe was a state secret, and there are many cases when the disclosure of the secrets were punished more than, for example, for the plundering of the Royal Treasury.

In 1649 appeared vanilla ice cream — it was invented by a French chef Gerard Tirsen. And then the recipe ice dessert was updated constantly — appeared new varieties.

The public learned the recipe thanks to Procopio de Coltelli, who opened the first ice cream parlor in Paris. In 1782, in this cafe, customers were offered up to eighty varieties of ice cream.
