Who invented it? Five facts about ice cream

Who invented it?

Italy is by no means considered the cradle of our ice cream. Researchers attribute the invention to the Chinese. At least the sorbet was already known to us in antiquity. There is evidence of the preference of Hippocrates or Alexander the Great for cool delicacies. In the 13th century Marco Polo describes an ice cream recipe from China and Katharina de Medici brought this ice cream to France in the 16th century. The first German mention can be found in a cookbook from 1597. The first ice cream parlor was in Paris in the 17th century.

Where does the ice cream parlor come from?

But why actually ice cream parlor? There are several theories for this. In Vienna, it was forbidden for hawkers to sell ice cream on the street. So they sold out of their own floorboard window. The only thing that speaks against it is that in Vienna, as in the rest of Austria, the term ice cream parlor is rarely used. There one speaks of the ice cream parlor. Another theory is that ice cream was also often sold out of the window in post-war Germany. To make things easier for the little customers, a thick floorboard was placed underneath. A third theory leads to northern Germany. According to the Bertelsmann dictionary of the German language, the hallway describes a room at ground level in the house that is used as a workshop, kitchen or sales room. Perhaps the most conclusive explanation if the Hanseatic City of Hamburg of all places is credited with having the first German ice cream parlor.

Why are Italian ice cream parlors called the same everywhere?

Whether in Munich, Koblenz or on Sylt. Italian ice cream parlors have the same names everywhere: Venezia, Dolomiti or Rialto and so on. The explanation for this is relatively simple. Many Italian ice cream makers named their gelateria after the Italian region they came from.

Stracciatella is not straciatela

Anyone who orders Stracciatella in the ice cream parlor is looking forward to a milk ice cream with chocolate chips. If you place the same order in the Italian-speaking area, you will get confused looks. There you might get a soup with a deposit of eggs and semolina, parmesan or flour. Since the egg is also cooked, it is (in Italian) "straciatela", meaning torn or shredded.

Patent fee too high

Spaghetti ice cream was not invented in Italy, but in Germany. Both the Neuss ice cream parlor owner Eliano Rizzardini and the Mannheim ice cream maker Dario Fontanella both claim to have invented spaghetti ice cream at the end of the 1960s. To shape the ice cream, Fontanella used an ice-cold spaetzle press. The fee for the patent application in the amount of around 200 DM is said to have been too high for the ice cream maker at the time.
