The Ambrosial Collection

So devoted are the Italians to this delicacy of ice cream, gelati or sorbetti emblems of any Roman street. Legend has it that Emperor Nero used to send run- ner slaves to the mountain to collect snow and hurry it back, flavour it with fruit juice, and serve him his favourite treat. Ice cream’s origins are disputed, but it is known that the ancient Romans learned to cool drinks with snow from the Greeks, while history recounts a recipe by Rome’s Pliny the Elder mixing crushed ice with honey and fruit juices.The Roman Empire brought the idea of ice cream to the Mediterranean and the Arab countries, where the word sorbet was born, derived from scherbet, meaning sweet snow.
