"The Ultimate Ice Cream Book" contains enough recipes to fill your summer days with delicious frozen desserts -- but after acquainting yourself with this book's hundreds of tempting concoctions, you'll want to use it every day of the year. With over 500 recipes, author Bruce Weinstein has put together the most comprehensive cookbook of its kind, covering just about every conceivable flavor of ice cream, sorbet, and granita; dozens of different recipes for shakes, malts, and other cold drinks; how to make your own ice cream cones; and toppings galore.

If you ever worried that you might not get full use out of your ice-cream maker, cast your doubts aside. Ice cream recipes feature such unusual flavors as lavender, chestnut, rhubarb, and Earl Grey tea. Even Weinstein's vanilla ice cream is anything but plain, with variations like Vanilla Crunch, Vanilla Rose, and Vanilla Cracker Jack. There is also a plethora of light, refreshing recipes for sorbets and granitas, with flavors like Apple Chardonnay, Coconut, and Kiwi. Top everything off with the author's recipes forhomemade sauces. Whether it's a special event or a midnight snack, "The Ultimate Ice Cream Book" has what you need to make any occasion a little sweeter.


Not For Aussies


I'm an experienced home ice cream maker and bought this book looking for new ideas and inspiration, perhaps some new techniques/tricks, after reading positive reviews on book sellers sites (I now suspect they all written b the publisher and friends of the author) What a disappointment. It is written solely for the US market. Everything is measured in US cups and spoons (impossible to buy downunder). Given the volume to weight differential with various ingredients, even ounces would be a preference as we can get scales and measuring jugs with both US and Aussie. If you don't understand that - think about 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of butter. They do not weight the same, so unless you have a US cup, it's almost impossible to measure. The recipes are quite bland too. Barely a tablespoon of alcohol in sight, and nada a mention of things like Basil, or Earl Grey Tea. They seem to be the flavours of ice cream that one can buy at any Ben & Jerry store, nothing else. It doesn't even include that American fad 'Bacon Ice Cream'!! I did manage to make a couple of the fruit flavours with extensive use of Google to find out the weight of ingredients (took hours & hours) and they simply were not worth the effort - very pedestrian. The extensive use of corn flour & corn syrup was also a disappointment. This is the last time I will ever purchase a US recipe book sans preview.
