About the Author

Elsa Petersen-Schepelern is a Danish-Australian food and wine writer and editor. She began her working life as a publicist for movie stars, best-selling novelists, sportsmen, and comedians, as well as top chefs, before taking up the pen and the pans on her own account. Based in London, Elsa now spends much of her time sampling food and wine around the world. She draws on a eclectic mix of cuisines, as well as nostalgic memories of wonderful ice cream parlors (now sadly disappeared), as the inspiration for her delicious recipes.

Debi Treloar, originally from a small mining town in Zimbabwe where ice cream was a rare commodity, has lived and worked in London for the past 10 years. Now she has every chance to eat ice cream and takes full advantage, with the help of her husband and two small children who road-tested the recipes in this book. Her photographs are well known from magazines such as Homes and Gardens, Red, and Country Living.

This book will have you drooling for everything in it, I promise. The pictures are fantastic and very classy. This is a hardback book that showcase 30 nostalgic soda fountain recipes for various ice cream treats. The recipes include home made sauces like warm raisin sauce, strawberry sauce, and butterscotch sauce. There are recipes for homemade ice cream including mint chip, coffee, peppermint, rocky road and more. Refreshing drink recipes like milkshakes, malts, black cow, brown cow, frappe, iced coffee, floats. And of course what soda fountain would be complete without banana splits, parfaits, sundaes, the French Romanov parfait, a knickerbocker and more. Also has sherbets and ice milks, homemade ice cream sandwiches, cones, waffles, wafers and more.
I found the recipes to be accurate and delicious, not complicated at all, and each one is accompanied by photos of the actual treat you are making.
Has a nice introduction with photos from vintage soda fountains, a great example of Americana.

I purchased this as part of a wedding shower gift to complement the couple's registry items (ice cream spade, milk shake glasses and straws, etc.). I was disappointed! This is a lovely book...if you're looking for good photography. If you're looking for innovative recipe ideas, skip this book. There is literally nothing new under the sun here.

This tiny book is a great introduction to the soda fountain and the elements of soda fountain desserts. There are a few recipes each for sundaes, shakes, sauces, lady-fingers, and ice cream cones. Not very in depth but has good color photos and the recipes that are included are very good. Nice to add to a collection. It includes instructions for making the famous egg cream.
