By Autamme_dot_com TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 30 Sept. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This book aims to have you making dreams a reality. Recreating possibly some favourite childhood ice creams as well as producing some modern day dreamy classics.

This is a relatively slim volume, encased around a wealth of wonderful photographs that make this a lot more than just a book full of ice cream recipes - it is a visual work of art. Perhaps one shouldn't be surprised about the photographs - the author gave up her career as a photographer to make bespoke ice cream, starting with an ice cream van which visited various markets and festivals. The van remains but now there is also a classic ice cream parlour as well in London, England. The author is clearly living and enjoying the dream.

So the book... well it starts with a great overview to the basics of ice cream and sorbet making, the equipment and core ingredients necessary and, of course, the basic ice cream mixes. The author carefully and considerately explains the art and passion of ice cream making in a fairly careful yet care-free manner, dispensing advice and hints along the way. It is eminently readable but it can be somewhat disturbing when your eyes alight to a full colour photograph of a rather scrumptious bowl of ice cream. Talk about distractions... From the very first recipe - black sesame ice cream - the goodies keep coming even though this reviewer remains sceptical towards the idea of beetroot ice cream yet it is on the list of things to try. Not every recipe gets its own picture which is a bit of a shame when you see the quality of the imagery throughout this book. The recipes themselves are well and clearly written, feature dual metric and imperial measures and should pose no trouble to the methodical cook.

A truly excellent book. There are some really delightful ice creams, sorbets and bombes in here, many with ingredients you would never associate with ice cream, or any dessert come to that. Orange and candied peel ice cream, mmmm!

I bought it after I saw some enthusiastic comments about it by a friend on Facebook and I have to say she was not exaggerating. Recipes are mouthwatering and easy to follow and the text provides very interesting background information.

You won't be disappointed,
