Oh what a delight! Spaghetti Ice cream is very popular all over Germany, and you can get it in every ice cream parlor (“Eisdiele” in German and “Gelateria” in Italian) in Germany. The first ice cream parlor was opened 1668 in Paris by the Sicilian Francesco Procopio de Coltelli who used to be the cook of Ludwig XIV in Paris. There are about 4000 ice cream parlors throughout Germany and 3000 are run by Italians. The parlors used to be open only during summer and closed in winter but this has changed. Many of the Italians who came to Germany in the 50s and 60s are now living for good in Germany and it is also the next generation who takes care of the business. If you have a Spaetzle press or a potato ricer you can make the spaghetti ice cream at home. Happy Icecreaming!
