Synopses & Reviews
The Sundae, named for the evening of the Lord's Day (and invented for a minister), is the quintessential American dessert: refreshing, honest, wholesome and subject to endless invention. George Washington loved ice cream (his special pewter bowls can be seen at Mt. Vernon); Thomas Jefferson added syrup (maple on vanilla), and, finally, a cherry was put on the top. Whole families worked together to churn ice cream for Sundaes and many families joined for church Sundae Socials. This book offers charming Sundae stories, names the best old ice cream parlors in America, and tells how to make ice cream and toppings at home. It also describes how to assemble a great variety of Sundaes for a Sundae Social today.
