The appearance of the first analogue of ice cream is associated with Ancient Rome. We have received information that the Emperor Nero sent his servants to the mountains to extract ice and snow for him. Further, these components were mixed with fruits or berries. The emperor was very fond of this dish.
It is assumed that modern examples of ice cream appeared in the 18th and 19th centuries. Then there were already certain technologies that made it possible to freeze cream. Someone came up with the idea of adding strawberries and other berry fillers to the recipe.
Initially, ice cream was only available to the upper classes. It could often be found on tables in palaces. The merit of popularizing this dish among ordinary people belongs to Carlo Gatti. He opened an ice cream shop in London in 1851. Gatti invented the so-called “ice well”, which made it possible to keep ice for a long time. Gradually, his business expanded, and ice cream became a popular dessert all over the world.
