A celebration of the world's greatest chilled dessert, this book focuses on the specifically Italian origins of ices. Many would later claim ices as their own, but gelati, sorbetti, granite and many more sweet treats from the icebox all had their beginnings in Italy. Cornettos overloaded with softly melting scoops of flavoursome heaven did not occur by chance - much went before - tales that need to be told! The Romans brought down blocks of frozen snow from the slopes of mount Etna to store in grottoes and man-made ice houses during the dry heat of summer. The icy slush was flavoured with fruit and honey syrup and it wasn't long before a lively trade in the new delicacy erupted amongst the fashionable nobility of the day. Soon everyone wanted ice; yet this was no passing fad and an enduring culinary legacy was born. As well as providing delicious recipes for everything from a divinely delicate pear and white wine sorbet to the most indulgent Zuccotto (a confection of chocolate, alcohol, cream and nuts), Gelato explores the fascinating myths, true stories and historic events behind the scenes. Packed with stunning photography, easy to follow instructions (many recipes do not require an ice cream maker), and interesting asides, this book fully justifies ice cream's reigning popularity as the world's number one comfort food.
