For the past two years, I've been following Shere's inspiring book religously in making sherbets and ice creams from whatever's fresh at the Union Square Greenmarket on a given Saturday. I've made wild plum sherbet, nectarine sherbet, apricot sherbet, apricot ice cream, peach ice cream, blueberry ice cream, raspberry sherbet, strawberry sherbet, strawberry ice cream and even coconut (though those weren't grown locally). Each one has been great, and I'm only using a fifty dollar Krups ice cream maker. The differing recipes and strong attention to technique provide a clinic on balancing acidity through lemon peel, sweetness through sugar, and texture through blending and straining.
The author takes the time to describe preparation concepts and technique with enough detail to make sure the cook succeeds, with plenty of suggestions for variations and embellishments. Sure, there are a lot of ice cream recipes - but they happen to yield some of the most exquisite ice creams and sherberts I've ever tasted (I now grow jasmine just for this purpose).
When I decide to make a dessert, this book is the first, and often the only, place I look.

I think it is just okay. I like cookbooks with pictures. Some of the recipes seem fine. I will try some of them. But I did not realize there no pictures. Read morePublished 10 months ago by lynnar
