National Raspberry Bombe Day

Raspberry bombe is celebrated today with Raspberry Bombe Day. Bombe, known as bombe glacée in French, is a spherical-shaped frozen ice cream dessert. It has such a name because it looks a bit like a cannonball. Ingredients regularly used to make a bombe are heavy cream, sugar, sherbet, chopped nuts, candied fruit, and a small amount of rum. The center is made of flavored ice cream, mousse, or custard. Bombe appeared on menus in restaurants by 1882, and over sixty recipes appeared in Auguste Escoffier's Le Guide Culinaire in 1903.
