Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ivan Day's charming and mouth-watering history of ice cream has opened my eyes to the amazing world of Victorian ice cream... [the] book is illustrated with some incredible pictures from cookery books, and even photographs of Victorian ice cream molds." - Laura Crawley, Kitchen Retro

"At 64 pages with numerous color photos Ice Cream briskly explains production, extraordinary early flavors, vendor carts & trucks, advertising, and the changing ways in which these treats were enjoyed in British society." - Andrew Brozyna, The Spunky Coconut

" For those who want to know more about the history of ice cream, Day’s book is an excellent starting point. Quick, informative, and clearly written, it should satisfy anyone with an interest in learning more about the topic." -Richard Dansky, Sleeping Hedgehog

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little British book shows the old ice houses below ground, with architectural drawings, no less! The history of ice cream making is the best I have read - with grand illustrations, drawn with a master's hand.
