  1. A bit of trivia—ice cream originated from France. The late and former US president Thomas Jefferson was so enamored of this dessert that he made sure the ice cream recipe was reproduced so he can enjoy it everyday in the USA. And the rest as they say is ice cream history.

      1. It is French. A la mode means –according to fashion. In cookery, in terms of meats, it means— braised with vegetables in wine . In both US and Canadian cookery specifically desserts, a la mode means — served with ice cream. So a piece of pie served with ice cream is called pie a la mode. Bon apetit!(Happy eating!)
