This dessert needs no explanation.
Ice cream is perhaps the most beloved and iconic dessert in the world, famous in every nation across the globe.
Its origins date back to antiquity when, probably, fruit, milk, honey, and other foods were refrigerated to preserve them. Keep in mind that there are reports of frozen dairy products that date as far back as the Tang dynasty (618–907).
However, Ice cream as we know it today was invented by Bernardo Buontalenti, a famous architect who worked in the court of Caterina dei Medici in the 17th century.
Now, let’s learn how to prepare this delicious recipe!
5.3 oz sugar
