When it comes to dessert cookbooks, we want photos. And not just any photos - big, luscious, deliciously colorful photos. And of course the recipes need to match up in quality. Well, when it comes to ice cream, we have just the book for you.
This small, friendly, and colorful book is a delightful primer for ice cream chefs. It includes many basic recipes like Sweet Cream and Cocoa Sorbet. But it quickly dives into more original spaces, with recipes for things like Pretzel and Chocolate Gelato, Graham Cracker Malted Vanilla Ice Cream, and Grape-Nuts Ice Cream. Yes, Grape-Nuts - the health cereal. It actually sounds amazing - one recipe we definitely bookmarked to try.
One interesting note is that the author strongly advocates using sugar syrup in eggless ice creams, which she says makes them smoother. We are interested in trying this out.
There's a recipe for every week of the year - many of them just right for the season - and most lavishly photographed. It's a lovely book. We're giving away five copies!
