Sorbet was first believed to be introduced to Europe in the thirteenth century by Marco Polo, who brought it back to Italy from China. It reached France in the sixteenth century when Catherine de' Medici moved there to marry the Duke of Orleans, and eventually reached England by the end of the seventeenth century.
