Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Food writer and "ice cream person" Ferreira explores the possibilities of store-bought ice cream with recipes ranging from a richly decadent eggnog ice cream torte to an airy raspberry sorbet sandwich with cocoa meringues. While the author admits that ice cream is difficult to improve upon, she maintains that even the subtlest addition—a twist of orange zest, a white chocolate drizzle—can make a big difference. There needn’t be much arm-twisting here—the mouthwatering photography does the dirty work for her. Along with recipes for cakes, inventive shakes and malts, hand-held treats and a variety of toppings, Ferreira offers a buying guide and tips on the basics, such as softening and shaping ice cream. For the reader who wants to try something more daring, the book also contains recipes for homemade ice cream in traditional flavors like coffee, dark chocolate and vanilla bean.

Format: Hardcover
This was bought for me by someone who believed that it was mostly a book of various homemade ice creams. Though there are four listed in the back, this is not the strong suit of the book - I recommend David Lebovitz's The Perfect Scoop for that - I really enjoy the book, so far. There are several nice recipes, for cakes and other 'ice cream accessories' - I love the idea of a lemon meringue pie with lemon sorbet - cool riff on a baked alaska. There are many good recipes for ice cream sauces.

My only complaint would be that some of the recipes are rather uncreative - espresso milk shake is coffee ice cream, milk, and espresso. Genius.

But those are in the minority. Every ice cream sandwich recipe includes a recipe for some kind of cookie or something. Some of them are the usual, but many of them are really cool. I haven't tried them yet, but the cocoa nib meringues look delicious, especially the way they are pictured with raspberry sorbet.

This is great for ice cream desserts, like they say, but don't look for ice cream recipes here.

I bought this book because my husband and I love anything ice cream. A friend of ours loves German chocolate cake so I made the German chocolate ice cream cake and his family loved it. It does take a few hours to make the cakes but the recipes are easy and YUMMY!!!! If you love ice cream then you will love this book.
