6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Susie on 16 Aug. 2002
Format: Hardcover
Excellent book with clear instructions for hand and machine-made ice-creams. Wonderful flavours include pistachio, a wonderful chocolate, vanilla to die for, coffee-toffee swirl and numerous others just as mouthwatering. I haven't tasted the like even in Italy!
All recipes are carefully laid out, not only with pictures of the finished product, but with clear illustrations demonstrating the making process.
The section on iced desserts shows great ideas for dinner parties and other more formal occasions.
All in all, a great book both for expert and novice alike.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Bearman TOP 100 REVIEWER on 8 July 2014
Format: Paperback
First of all, it should be noted that the contents of this book are identical to "Best-Ever Book of Ice Cream" by the same two authors (Joanna Farrow and Sara Lewis). Both books list 150 recipes, and the same photographs appear to have been used in both books. The only difference that I can see is that the "Best-Ever" version of the book contains a nutritional breakdown for each recipe, and bearing in mind this is an Ice Cream/Dessert book - it is a bit of a depressingly double edged sword! So if you own one book, don't buy the other. The only other differences that I can see are that they have simply reformatted the book and changed the title and cover. This review is for the "Best-Ever Book of Ice Cream"

Having said that, I LOVE THIS BOOK. I bought this after receiving an ice cream machine for a birthday present and I have not looked back since. Surprisingly for any cookbook, every recipe that I have attempted has worked. This is an excellent confirmation that the authors have done their jobs properly ensuring that there are no errors, and presumably testing out the recipes carefully (what a job!). There is a section on no cream/low fat recipes though to date I have not tried any of those recipes.

Of the recipes I have tested, 2 stood out as being spectacular: The Saffron, Apricot and Almond Ice Cream and the Caramel and Pecan Torte.

The book is divided into 11 chapters:
Introduction
Sorbets, sherbets, water ices & granitas
Vanilla, Chocolate & coffee ice creams
Fruit & nut ice creams
Cream-free & low fat ices
Bombes, terrines, tortes & gateaux
Iced desserts & hot ice cream puddings
Herb, spice & flower ices
Iced drinks
Ice cream basics
Index

Format: Hardcover
I found this book at my local library and fell totally in love with it so ordered it from Amazon.
To be totally honest I'm a bit of a (non-fiction/how to) book fan and have bought a fair amount of books lately, but this one is by far the best book I have bought.
I've only had it and our ice cream machine for a few weeks but the recipes are so fun, easy and addictive I've already made, Lemon and Orange Sorbet, Rum & Rasin Ice Cream (so far my favorite), Creme Fraiche and Honey Ice, Simple Strawberry Ice Cream (but with raspberries and Crem de Cassis), Coconut Ice (with coconut milk) plus a few others. Every recipe I have tried so far has turned out to be a great success (which I sadly can't say for the recipes that came with the machine itself). The only thing negative about this book is the effect it is having on my waistline (but oh well life is short we may as well enjoy it!)

This book has everything a great cookbook should have:

* Many beautiful, useful and scrumptious looking photographs.
* It is well written, clear and easy to follow
* There is a wonderful selection of recipes from your basic vanilla, fruit or chocolate recipes to ice cream torte and hot ice cream puddings.
* There is also a nice section in the beginning which explains the history of ice cream and explains a range of techniques such as making brandysnaps, ice cream cones, sugared lemon rind etc.
* The measurements for the ingredients are not only balanced well (ie not too much sugar as I have experienced with other ice cream recipes) but the are also given in various systems (ie 75g, 3oz or 6tbsp)

So in other words if your looking for an ice cream book start with this one and then you may like to buy some others (though it'll be hard finding one as great as this one).

Easy to follow recipes, also a really good range of recipes. This book has the advantage of how to make all the recipes without an icecream maker.

Lots of wonderful things to do with your ice cream machine 6 July 2000
By J. C. M. Bannerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I found this book while browsing the ice cream cookbooks looking for a coconut ice cream recipe and was really impressed with their recipe (nice and tangy with lime juice). This book has lots of interesting recipes for ice creams and iced desserts which go beyond the average ice cream you find in the dairy section such as sorbets, pies, parfaits, tortes, brulees. I like the fact that they have instructions for making Kulfee (Indian Ice Cream) in an ice cream machine (the recipes are geared for the average ice cream machine). The instructions are accompanied with pictures of how to do it for those of us who are cooking "impaired." There are lots of other bits of ice cream history and other facts which will help you make some very wonderful ice desserts. This book is defintely worth the money!

Awesome Ice Cream Book 26 Aug. 2001
By taleeya - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wow, this book is totally beautiful. There is a wide range of recipes from simple and basic to complex and decandent. There's basic ice creams, such as coffee and choclate ripple; sorbets and granitas; and various other cold desserts such as strawberry semi-freddo (partially frozen dessert). There is also a good section on garnishing and in one recipe you make a frozen ice bowl with roses in it (look at the cover). All of the instructions are very simple, they include pictures and they are done step-by-step. You can get this book just for the scrumptious looking pictures or if you are looking for a book that will help you impress guests on a warm day,this is it!

All you want to know about ice-cream 10 Sept. 2007
By Cosmas Bisticas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Wow I was really impressed with this book! The first 10 pages of this book are dedicated to ice-cream history making it a nice one to leave out on your coffee table. The author then moves on to making ice-cream, necessary equipment, ingredients and how to work with them, sorbets and granitas and even garnishes for you plated iced desserts.

The recipes are divided into categories:, sorbets and granitas, vanilla chocolate and coffee, fruit and nut, cream free and low fat frozen desserts, bombes and terrines, tortes and gateaux, hot ice gream desserts, elegant iced desserts, ice creams with fruit, herb, spice and flower frozen desserts and frozen drinks.

This is really a well thought out book, with consise directions and full of ideas for any occassion. Great Buy!

This book is definitely for icream lovers. 6 Sept. 2013
By Lynn B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Beatifully put together book. You may want to display it on a coffee table or somewhere where your guests may see it when visiting. They will love looking through it and seeing all of the yummy desserts made with ice cream. Easy instructions - so you will enjoy making desserts for family and dinner guests. I wish they had it in hardcover, but I only saw it in paperback. However, it is still a great book with enticing pictures that will make your mouth melt, especially, if you love ice cream. It does have fine print as mentioned in some of the other reviews. I'm a senior and wear glasses so I do use a magnifier when reading the reciipes.
