The cover of this book really grabbed my attention. I love ice cream! I remember making ice cream with my grandfather the “old fashioned way”. We would sit on the front porch making ice cream and he would tell us stories about when he was a young boy. I sure do miss those times.

The book doesn’t show us how to make ice cream the “old fashioned way”, but it does have a lot of information. It goes into detail about what equipment you should use, the best ingredients and ice cream machine to use. Not only are there recipes for ice cream, but there are recipes for other frozen treats.

The recipes in this book are easy to follow….it does look a little intimidating at first. There are not photos for every recipe, but the ones that do have photos look amazing. The recipes require “real” ingredients.  You know exactly what is going into your ice cream. Most of the recipes are started with a base ice cream….once you learn this recipe it will be easy to make your own flavors and explore.

This book is very organized:

  • Chapter One-Ingredients and Equipment
  • Chapter Two-Techniques
  • Chapter Three-Classic
  • Chapter Four-Chocolaty
  • Chapter Five-Fruity
  • Chapter Six-Nostalgic
  • Chapter Seven-Surprising
  • Chapter Eight-Festive
  • Chapter Nine-Boozy
  • Chapter Ten-and to top it off…

This is a great book for frozen treats and it now has a place on my bookshelf. If you love ice cream this is a great book for you and I would definitely recommend it to everyone. You can purchase a copy for yourself here.
