Gelato: it is a frozen dessert of Italian origin and as with the words pizza and pasta, gelato transcends any linguistic barriers, having become a universally-recognized term specifying a specific type of ice cream. The gelato that we all know and love today did not appear on the scene until the 16th Century, when a mixture of milk, cream and eggs was invented in Florence. Created by Caterina de’ Medici’s Florentine pastry chefs, this Italian specialty became a favorite in Caterina’s husband Henry II’s Court in France, whence it eventually garnered fame and appreciation in Europe and around the world. The taste and feel of cool gelato, whether cupped or coned, whether strolling the lanes or relaxing in the piazzas of the Italian cities, is one of those undeniable pleasures of life that go hand in hand with the beautiful sceneries of all of Italy.
