The magic of the Ice Cream and Sorbet, Anecdotes

0 Comments

Ice cream has been a fascination for centuries. Its roots are even deeper than we think. We can start by metionning the Roman emperor, Neron who is said to be the first to use the fruity syrups cooled in snow called sharbets, "fruity ice cubes". 

We go closer  in time and jump directly to the American land where the ice-cream stirred the attention and the indignation, at first. 

Who made the ice cream known in the United StatesW

The ice-cold madness that was sweeping across Europe did not escape the American sagacity, including in the White House. In 1816, James Madison, the 4th President of the United States, gave a banquet where a frozen pudding was served with great pomp. Thsi caused one guest to faint. Accused of having poisoned her, the cook was immediately sent to court. But the first lady, having found the dessert delicious, obtained her acquittal, which launched the vogue for frozen products across the Atlantic!

Who created the ice cream machinery

In 1846, it was an American housewife who invented the first crank ice cream maker. This was replaced in 1870 by a system of steam belts, another US invention to which the cone succeeded in 1904 and the Eskimo in 1923. At the end of the 19th century, with the invention of Freon gas and the refrigerator, the United States fully launched into ice cream production, as did Europe. Ice becomes industrial. But in France, he artisanal know-how will always remain a trademark thanks, among others, to houses like Berthillon or Béatrix.
