History of Gelato
The history of gelato dates from frozen desserts made from snow and ice brought down from mountaintops, notably served during banquets at the Medici court in Florence, Italy.
An Italian chef from Sicily, Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli invents a gelato machine and opens the first Café in Paris (Café Procope) serving gelato to intellectual Parisians.
