~ A trivial incident ~

...and a world-famous delicacy was originated. Prince Conde, the famous Huguenot of France, was one of Louis XIV's famous generals, and to him the world owes one of its favorite desserts.

One day Prince Condie had a great feast prepared for the King. The piece de resistance was to be the dessert, pure sweet cream in a bowl of ice.

By accident, salt was dropped into the ice. Sherry was poured on top of the cream and the whole served.

Louis XIV named it "Ice Cream" and from that time it became famous.
