An ice cream machine takes the strain and speeds up the process of homemade ice cream, eliminating the need to break up ice crystals yet producing seductive confections without fuss. If you don't own a machine, buy one! Manufacturers' instructions may contain a handful of recipes but you will want more, and more! Each of the sun-kissed recipes in "The Ice Cream Machine Book" has been prepared for use in a variety of machines, either top-of-the-range or less expensive models, or indeed without a machine at all - they make preparing ice cream almost as much fun as eating it! Over 100 recipes feature sherbets, sorbets, reduced fat ice creams, as well as ice milk and tofu ice creams, with further sections on sauces and luxury desserts. The all-time favourites are here: vanilla and strawberry, along with extraordinary experiences such as Chilli and Chocolate Ice Cream or Raspberry Tofu Ripple.
