love it like a fat kid loves ice cream...
on 15 April 2013
I have been putting off making ice cream for ages as i couldn't find a book that could guide me through the entire process... Do i need a machine? do i have to churn? and most of all how can i make ice cream that will taste like nothing in the shops?
This is a superb book for a beginner like myself in that it explains, in a clear, friendly way, the differences in the methods of making ice cream as well as clearly labelling the recipes that don't require churning.
The book starts with the super simple classics like strawberry and chocolate before opening up into recipes such as marmalade on toast and sloe gin fizz.
Its also not just ice cream, a 'supporting cast' at the end of the book has recipes for easy doughnuts, basic waffles and the phenomenal sounding 'French Elvis' amongst others.
The book works on many different levels; from informing you of ice cream making process through to providing recipes but also in providing inspiration for the reader for other flavours or techniques that might work. Most of all though, its all written in a friendly relaxed style that never intimidates.
This is fast becoming my favourite book!
