More About the Author

Founder of the cutting-edge rock and roll brand The Icecreamists, O'Connor is a true pioneer of uncensored, opinionated brands that push boundaries. His résumé is as bold as his ice cream flavours and over the last 20 years includes work as a big brand communicator and creative director on some of the world's leading brands, cocktail supremo, designer, film, theatrical and political projects, books and music. There's also the small matter of him being the founding father and frontman of the most contentious and high-profile pressure group of modern times, Fathers4Justice. The story of Matt's unique journey is an inspiring insight to the commercial and political power of creative innovation.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!!! 14 Oct 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is AMAZING!
I love the shop in Covent Garden, so when I saw there was a book, I had to buy it (thanks to having some Amazon vouchers!) - and then an icecream maker to go with it!!!
I've tried the gin and tonic sorbetto - really easy and delicious (I don't even like gin!). I'm looking forward to trying lots more of the receipes and experimenting with some concoctions of my own.
If you like icecream, this is a MUST, icecream will never be the same again!

2.0 out of 5 stars A triumph of modern marketing 24 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover
I'll start with some basics so you can accurately judge my review:

I own an ice cream maker (just the standard 'freezeable tub with a motor' type)
I've made countless batches of very varied ice creams (estimating 200+ batches based on a fortnightly concoting basis over the last 8 years)
I'm an instinctive cook, and can bake, create recipes and rarely mess things up.

I received this book from a very good friend who knows me well and is also responsible for me owning the aforementioned ice cream maker, so I feel sad that I start my review by assigning the damning 2 star score to such a thoughtful present.

I must also caveat this review by saying that I had very little prior knowledge of The Icecreamist before receiving this, and only caught a cursory glimpse of the 'Baby GaGa' article in the Metro, so feel I am pretty unbiased.

Positives:
Lots of background on the author - we can trust him as he has a long standing love and career in the ice-cream industry.
There are plenty of photographs throughout
There's a lot of recipes for ice-creams, (the much forgotten) sorbets, cocktails and other things to do with your ice cream.
There's a pragmatic hints and tips section
There's an equipment list (that shows clearly that you don't need every gadget under the sun to make something lucious).

So, as I take my cookery books seriously, I firstly read the headlines of all the recipes: concoction name and main ingredients. Secondly, I went back to a couple of stand-out recipes that appealed to me. Thirdly, I sourced my ingredients.

At this stage, what has struck me about the recipes is: They are nearly all based on the same simple custard premise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun in the freezer 19 Nov 2012
By B. Bello VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
IceCreamists by Matt O'Connor

An innovative and enjoyable read and adult collection of fabulous anything to do with ice cream, chilled cocktails, lollies, desserts etc. recipe book.

The way the book is written is very entertaining and - each dish is accompanied by mouth-watering photography.

Despite the many fabulous and imaginative combinations which definitely push the envelope - e.g. my favourite - The Ladychiller -( which is rose petal ice cream) and as for From Rocher With Love (praline and chocolate ice cream) - never mind the cocktail combinations- the recipes are straightforward and achievable.

An ice cream fantasy for those afflicted with `IceCreamism' with some practical advice thrown in.

Great gift book but after reading some other reviews not sure about the recipes, but what fun to investigate!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous 8 Nov 2012
By Beanie Luck Spud TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Wow

This book is like an orgasm for the eyes.

The pictures are incredible, it is extremely well presented, the recipes are easy to follow and none of them are too complicated or contain bizarre ingredients that no normal person could ever find.

You obviously will have to have an ice cream maker to be able to fully make use of this book and i recommend this one:

Andrew James Ice Cream, Sorbet and Frozen Yoghurt Maker Machine 1.45 Litre + 128 Page Recipe Book - As voted "Best Buy" Ice Cream Maker By Which Magazine

Would make a fantastic christmas present the 2 together.

Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The inside scoop... 28 Oct 2012
By techpuppy TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I guess the most difficult thing for any specialist cookbook focussing on a single dish is to keep it interesting for the reader and make it seem like the book is something more than just a list of slight variations on a theme. The Icecreamists tries very hard, maybe too hard, to make its variations on ice cream seem compelling and it mostly succeeds - but like many of the recipes, it's a very rich mix. The graphical style of the book borrows heavily from the Punk aesthetic of designer Jamie Reid (Never Mind the Small Licks, Here's a Tablespoon?) interspersed with cool pictures of frozen treats made to make your mouth water.

The ice creams themselves are given endlessly inventive pun titles like Choc & Awe, Gingiana Jones, Under the Cherry Spoon and Alexander McCream - that's Dark Chocolate, Asian Spiced Ginger, Mascarpone & Amarena and Spiced Pumpkin ice creams respectively. The book also includes the recipe for Baby Gaga, the infamous breast milk ice cream that caused a huge stir when The Icecreamists first put it on sale a couple of years ago.

If you're going to eat ice cream you might as well go the whole way - and then a bit further - ice cream is never going to be a slimming food. If, like me, you'd rather savour a spoonful of something extraordinary and delicious than suffer a bowlful of supermarket slop then this might be the ice cream cookbook for you. Its endlessly inventive combinations of flavours and textures attempt to create a new kind of frozen cuisine with ice creams, sorbets, cocktails, sundaes and ice lollies. They're almost all, like the book itself, shamelessly indulgent and over-the-top but really, what's the point of ice cream that isn't?
