The History of Ice Cream
The one that could be defined as the first tub / ice cream cone was found in Egypt in a tomb of the second dynasty (2700 BC). A kind of mold, two cups of silver, containing snow (or ice) and cooked fruit. The ``Neviere``, places to store snow and make ice are actually an old invention. ``
Rome and Pompeii
Ice cream was already eaten in ancient Rome, but the Romans did not know it as the delicacy we know today, they used slaves to bring snow from the mountains. In the ruins of Pompeii there are traces that suggest that there were shops selling scraped ice sweetened with honey.
The first homemade ice cream...
The first homemade ice cream was presented and tasted around 1560 at the court of Caterina de Medicini in Florence, presented by the architect Bernado Buontalenti it was almost a lemon sorbet cooled with snow.
The first ice cream shop ...
In 1686 the Siliciano Francesco Procopio opened the first ice cream parlour in Paris using fresh fruit, honey, sugar and ice. In 1700 the ice cream arrived in America, when Giovanni Basiolo took it to New York. At that time there were many kinds and types of ice cream that were not known, but in 1773 the first ice cream advertisement appeared in a newspaper saying: ``Just arrived from London, Monsieur Filippo Lenzi, pastry chef and ice cream man!``<br />
Expansion throughout Europe
In the early 1800s the Italian ice cream makers, located mainly in Venice, began to market and distribute their ice creams in Austria, Germany, Holland and Belgium and then throughout Europe.
