Originally it was shaved ice. At least that’s how culinary history remembers it. The first reference to ice-cream dates back to 1686 when the Sicilian cook, Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli, first prepared the recipe which we have all grown to love today. He availed of some refrigeration techniques he first found in the kitchen of the King of France, and, afterwards, at the Cafè Procope in Paris, where a vast variety of ice-creams were served. Over the last three hundred years Italian ice-cream has spread all over the world to become the most delicious dessert on the planet.
Sensual and irresistible. Creamy and refreshing. Colourful and incredibly elegant. Here are 40 recipes for ice-creams, sorbets and fruits made according to Italian tradition, with fresh, healthy, natural ingredients. From melon mousse and blackberry slush, to mint sorbet, fruit cones and kiwi sorbet: the flavour of fruit melds beautifully with creamy ice-cream. These are the ideal desserts to finish off a delicious lunch or dinner, or for a scrumptious, thirst quenching snack which must be served at the right temperature and intensity. iCook Italian also suggests the right alcoholic drink for each recipe, a delicate glass to enhance the fruity notes of sorbet and ice-cream.
