Gelato (2005 TV Movie)
- Summaries (2)
A look at ice cream, exploring its origins in Italy, its journey from towns like Zoldo to the rest of Europe, its shift from being a treat for kids to a staple for all (thanks in part to advertising), and the origins and success of Häagen-Dazs and Ben and Jerry's. Robin Weir, an English chemist turned ice cream historian, provides comment (on the first sorbet in 1650, the first cones - not invented at a World's Fair, and the health problems of 19th century sales), and there's enthusiasm from long-time gelato maker Corrado Brustolon and from the Minghella family, immigrants who took gelato to the Isle of Wight.
Ice cream aficionados, historians, and entrepreneurs discuss the frozen dessert called gelato.
