Customer Reviews

This book has some great recipes and I've tried a few.
Organic Baker
I really like that it gives you a "basic" recipe, and then afterwards several variations on that recipe.

Format: Hardcover
The 500 Ice Creams, Gelatos, and sorbets provides 125 recipes for a variety of frozen treats from everyday to special occasions. Each of the 125 recipes has four minor variations that tweak the item into a different version by adding a new flavor profile. An ice cream maker is essential for this one and it provides great variations on how to make ice creams as well as different specialty concoctions that can be formed with simple and direct recipes. We have only found a few recipes to be a little vague on the directions but overall have not had too many problems with this book. Overall well recommended for those that are looking for a lot of frozen recipes that can be built on.

Bought this to go with the KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment I got for my husband for xmas. There are a ton of great recipes in here. I really like that it gives you a "basic" recipe, and then afterwards several variations on that recipe. Some of the variations are common-sense (subbing one nut for another, for example), but others are creative and yummy. And the 'frozen treats' section at the end isn't a cop-out - it has some yummy recipes, too. So far, we've only made the chocolate, but it was DIVINE.

Almost all the ice cream recipes seem to call for "superfine sugar," which we couldn't find. Reportedly, you can run regular sugar through a food processor (it's not as fine as confectioner's), but we don't have a food processor and our blender died. So we just broke some up with a mortar and pestle and it seemed to work well.

I got this book because I got an ice cream maker for Christmas and I love it. It contains more than just ice cream, sorbet and gelato recipes. It includes "ices" and frozen desserts, as well as low-fat and non-dairy recipes.

Format: Hardcover
One reviewer said the book is "vague". It's worse than that. The very first recipe, the most fundamental ice cream recipe, the one for plain old vanilla has a glaring error. The recipe never says what to do with the half of the milk that is initially reserved. Do you heat it with the rest of the milk? Do you mix it in with the whipping cream? Do you just add it at the end? Do you pour it over the finished frozen ice cream? The last option may be out, but seriously, what do you do with it?
If you can't rely on plain vanilla what good is an ice cream recipe book?

"500 ice creams, sorbets & gelatos" is a wonderful little book featuring 500 ice-cream recipes you cam make with an ice-cream maker in your own kitchen. It features everything from old fashion French vanilla to watermelon granita. But some how, having 500 recipes don't seem to be enough, and every time I put the book down, I am left wanting more. After all, who doesn't like ice-cream?

Ordered a Cuisinart Icecream Maker and thought I needed an ice cream book. My boyfriend and I tried a few recipes already. They're great. Tons and tons of recipes. We really like that it's not just ice cream recipes bu also sorbets and gelatos. I love the basic vanilla flavor and I just throw in my favorite toppings. Hardbound book with great pictures too.

I bought this book as a gift for my children to use with their ice cream makers and also one for myself. Instructions and book with ice cream maker was good but this gives a broader range to types of ice creams, sorbets and gelatos. It also covers sherbets which instructions with ice cream maker did not. Highly recommend for those with ice cream makers that want to broaden the range of items they can make in their machines.
