Some Ice Cream History!
The outburst of creativity in this period flowed in all directions and inspired chefs churned sweetened cream mixtures into Italian ices and gelato.
However, ice cream was mainly a special treat for the rich. Catherine de Medici, an Italian noble who was married off at 14 to the Duke of Orleans brought the secret with her to France.
Ice cream was also served in the court of Louis XIV. Another French chef brought the secret formula to England where Charles I paid him to keep it a secret. When he died, this same chef sold the formula to a consortium of wealthy merchants. Once the secret was out, ice cream flourished all over England and France.
The first wholesale ice cream business opens in Baltimore in 1851.
