This review is from: Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream for the Home Kitchen (Hardcover)
I never write reviews (lazy, I know) but this book is so amazing, I had to tell everyone.
It offers a fantastic range of both classic and interesting, more innovative recipes, and each one is incredibly easy to follow and the results are delicious. And that's ice cream, sorbet AND frozen yogurt. I have had far more success using recipes from this book with my ice cream machine than with the recipes that actually came with the machine, whcih is fairly telling. I was a bit apprehensive because all the measurements are in American "cups", but a set of such cups is very easy to get hold of, and cheap - I would recommend doing that rather than trying to convert to Brit measurements.
Seriously, if you are looking for a book to give you both instruction and inspiration, you cannot go wrong with Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream.

The problem with using a cup as a measurement is not really the difficulty in finding it. At least in mainland Europe all measuring cups bring metric measurements and cups as well. The real problem is that it is not at all accurate and for desserts that is a problem! I just can't imagine how anybody uses them instead of using a scale and knowing exactly what they are doing!
