In this delicious story of ice cream, we are taken on an exotic journey for the old world to the new, from ice harvesting in ancient China to birthday celebrations in the age of Louis XIV to ice cream cones painted by Andy Warhol in the twentieth century. It's a story filled with history, adventure, myth, and intriguing facts about ice cream. Did you know that Scots believed ice cream parlors were dens of iniquity? Or that there are more than seven hundred flavors and that the flavor you prefer expresses your personality?
In all its many forms, ice cream has become one of the oldest, most popular, and most democratic of pleasures, "The only emperor is the emperor of ice cream," wrote the poet Wallace Stevens. A wonderful surprising, entertaining, and intelligent book, Ice Cream is about the dessert itself and how we have come to regard it. As Marilyn Powell reveals, ice cream is the dessert of memory, a perfect food for the imagination. Containing illustrations, anecdotes, and famous recipes, Ice Cream will delight ice cream lovers around the world.
