How did ice cream cones come to be? The possibilities are many, and Elaine Greenstein follows the historical trail to a hot afternoon at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. Speculation abounds, but all the variations in the story of the first cone seem to include waffle cookies, a lack of dishes, creativity and initiative, and, of course, delicious ice cream. Tom Stechschulte teases the listener, first by authoritatively narrating the details of the fair, then by using his voice to suggest the lack of certainty in the rest of the historical details that Greenstein documents. As the story leads to the U. S. Patent Office, authority returns to Stechschulte's presentation, as well as pleasure in the outcome. A.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 07]
