Description

In this delicious story 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 to ice-cream cones painted by Andy Warhol in the twentieth century. It's a story filled with history, adventure, myth, and intriguing facts about ice cream. Did you know that the Scots believed ice-cream parlours were dens of iniquity? Or that there are more than seven hundred flavours and that the flavour you prefer expresses your personality?

In all its many forms, ice cream has become one of the oldest, most popular, and democratic of pleasures. "The only emperor is the emperor of ice cream,"writes poet Wallace Stevens. A wonderfully surprising, entertaining, and intelligent book, Cool is about the dessert itself and how we regard it. As Marilyn Powell reveals, ice cream is the dessert of memory, a perfect food for the imagination. Containing illustrations, anecdotes, and famous recipes, Cool will delight ice-cream lovers around the world.
