His­tory of ge­lato

Edmonton Sun - - LIFE -

some would say ge­lato’s his­tory is as old as time, with flavours and tech­niques handed down through gen­er­a­tions. There are as many sto­ries of how ge­lato came to be as there are flavours. re­search shows the chi­nese recorded eat­ing a re­fresh­ing iced mix­ture as early as 200 bc. From there, the process of mak­ing frozen sweets prob­a­bly found its way to In­dia and then Per­sia, and was brought to si­cily by the arabs. Other re­search shows ge­lato was first cre­ated by bernardo buon­tal­enti for the court of Francesco de’ Medici in 1565. still, some say Marco Polo brought the idea back from his asian so­journs. In Italy, si­cily stands out as the place where ge­lato cre­ations are world-renowned.
