If you are looking for a great way to indulge on all the ice cream you can eat, The Ultimate Gourmet Ice Cream Social is for you! The big tasting takes place at PGA National Resort & Spa, 400 Avenue of the Champions, in Palm Beach Gardens on August 17, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Food historians tell us the history of ice cream began with ancient flavored ices. The Chinese are credited with creating the first ice creams as early as 3000 BC. Marco Polo brought the tasty delicacy to Italy and often cited for introducing us to the first “iced creams”. The ice creams we love today were concocted in Italy in the 17th century.
Many years ago, during the warm summer month’s people would put sweet cream, or freshly made warm custard in ice to cool. The chillier the cream, the more solid it became, thus the name “iced creams”. By the mid eighteenth century recipes became more sophisticated and “the rest is history”.
Over 40 natural varieties of gelatos, sorbets, and ice cream flavors from Whole Foods Market will satisfy everyone in the family. Dress your favorite frozen delight with tons of gourmet and unique toppings such as carob sprinkles, candied bacon to wasabi peas.
