Finally in paperback-a "sweet treat, just in time for summer" (Publishers Weekly) for ice cream lovers everywhere

In this delicious history of ice cream, we are taken on an exotic journey from the old world to the new, from ice harvesting in ancient China to birthday celebrations in the age of Louis XIV, and even to otherworldly Pop-art ice cream cones painted by Andy Warhol. It's a story filled with adventure, myth, and intriguing trivia. Did you know the Scots believed ice cream parlors were dens of iniquity? Or that there are more than seven hundred flavors around the world? Ice cream is one of the world's oldest and most democratic of pleasures. Complete with illustrations and beloved recipes, Ice Cream: The Delicious History is pure delight.
