You're Dead To Me - The History of Ice Cream

Download The History of Ice Cream

Greg Jenner and his guests Dr Annie Gray and Richard Osman get the inside scoop on the history of our favourite frozen food while packing in as many of their 'flavourite' ice cream puns as possible (final count: 15!). They savour the dubiously 'legendairy' origins of frozen cream dishes, explore some weird early flavours (including whale vomit!), and discover how ice cream went from glamorous luxury to dangerous health risk. Plus Dr Annie teaches us how to make our own ice cream in the Nuance Window!
