Transcript of Ice Cream prezi

Ice Cream By: Savanna Zarcone & Kathy Vu • Once upon a time, hundreds of years ago, Charles I of England hosted a sumptous state banquet for many of his friends and family. The meal, consisting of many delicacies of the day, had been simply superb but the "coup de grace" was yet to come. After much preparation, the King's french chef had concocted an apparently new dish. It was cold and resembled fresh- fallen snow but was much creamier and sweeter than any other after- dinner dessert. The guests were delighted, as was Charles, who summoned the cook and asked him not to divulge the recipe for his frozen cream. The King wanted the delicacy to be served only at the Royal table and offered the cook 500 pounds a year to keep it that way. Sometime later, however, poor Charles fell into disfavour with his people and was beheaded in 1649. But by that time, the secret of the frozen cream remained a secret no more. The cook, named DeMirco, had not kept his promise. Story • On July 23, 1904, Charles E. Minches of St. Louis, Missouri conceived the idea of filling a pastry cone with two scoops of ice cream, thereby inventing the ice cream cone. Facts • Records kept by a Chatham Street, New York, merchant show that President George Washington spent approximately $200 for ice cream during the summer of 1790. •Manufacturing ice cream soon became an industry in America, pioneered in 1851 by a Baltimore milk dealer named Jacob Fussell. •In 1874, the American soda fountain shops emerged with the invention of the ice cream soda. In response to religious criticism for eating "sinfully" rich ice cream sodas on Sundays, ice cream merchants left out the carbonated water and invented the ice cream "Sunday" in the late 1890's.The name was eventually changed to "sundae" to remove any connection with the Sabbath. In 1843, Nancy Johnson developed the first hand-crank ice cream maker Back then Ben & Jerry's ice cream Now Ice Cream Improvements Fun facts Americans consume an average 48 pints of ice cream per person, per year.
