Publishers Text

This comprehensive and authoritative book is the most thorough work yet on the subject, covering every possible aspect of successful ice-making. It is not only practical but offers a wealth of inspiration.

The heart of the book is a magical and imaginative collection of over 200 ices from the familiar to the exotic including sorbets, sherbets, gelatos, parfaits, spooms, granitas and ice creams. Classic French, Italian and American ices are represented as well as those from Asia and the Middle East. The majority are entirely original, from the delectable Pippin and Rose Petal Ice Cream to the wholly modern Gin and Tonic Sorbet, while some - such as the Victorian delicacy, Stilton Cheese Ice Cream and Mrs. Marshall's Ice Cream - are over a century old. These detailed recipes cater for both adult and children's tastes. All are equally suitable for making with or without an ice cream making machine.

This unique collection ranges from fast easy ices for the beginner (most of which can be made and eaten the same day) to formulae to enable serious or professional cooks to create their own designer ices in bulk. Special recipes cover every type of accompaniment from tuiles to sauces and home-made cones. A separate section covers the difficult art of making bombes. The authors offer valuable advice on the right equipment, both everyday and specialist; the keeping quality of ices; getting the taste and texture right; choosing quality ingredients and which to avoid. Every recipe is clear, precise and detailed, and has been thoroughly tested. All measures are given in US, imperial and metric.
