Editorial Reviews

Review

You just want to keep the blender running all the time. "

Ried goes further than anyone before him with his milkshake recipes: He writes about technique. "

You ll get the basics, but then the basics go ballistic: add tangerine sorbet to a chocolate shake; cardamom to a mocha shake; dark rum and cashew butter to a vanilla shake. . . . Serve shakes for dessert. They re fast, festive and so much fun. "

You can tell the author has done his homework and gives you step by step instruction on creating milkshake masterpieces. Bananas Fosters and Malted Caramel shakes are worth the price alone. If you love milkshakes and malts, look no further because this book will have you in milkshake heaven.

Absolutely needed a "kicked up" modern day milkshake book.
Shakes like: mocha-cardamom shake. So clever. Cardamom! Who would have thought this belongs right next to mocha in a shake.
Not only kicked up new creations, but old-fashioned ones like "Hal's Inauthentic Egg Cream", the "Rhode Island Coffee Cabinet" homage to the infamous Autocrat coffee syrup.
And of course variations on the old "black & white" shakes.
Adam also gives us cultural history and examples of shakes found around the world like: licuados, batidos, cholado....
Excellent book. Shakes you think of and shakes you learn about.

I gave this book to my brother-in-law who is always making milkshakes. He likes this book because he says that this guy knows how to make "real" milkshakes, as in thick and delicious. Recipes are interesting and diverse. A good book for people who love to try new things.

We all know the basic idea how to make a milkshake, so I thought this would kick it up a notch with flavorful ingrediant ideas and combinations. My problem is most of the recipes include finding ice cream in flavors I wouldn't normally pick up. If you're starting with ice cream, what is the point? Start with milk, flavors, ice...

I love vanilla malts, particularly if they are made with frozen custard, but I had a hard time finding a good one anywhere in our area. I decided to make my own, but I was not at all happy with the milkshake recipes in any of my standard cookbooks. I got this book, along with malt powder and made the best milkshake I've ever had in my own kitchen. I've tried the strawberry, vanilla, and vanilla malt shakes and have liked them all. My only word of warning would be that some of the ingredients may be difficult to find. For example, the recipe for the strawberry shake includes strawberry sorbet, which I have been unable to find. I made the shake without the sorbet, though, and liked it very much.

Plenty of cookbooks offer milkshake recipes which are mostly standards with a few variations, so it's a pleasure to see a cookbook entirely focused on milkshakes, offering staples plus new twists in classics - such as a Mocha-Cardamom shake, a Ginger-Chai Shake, or Coffee-Hazelnut Shake. Add some histories and colorful photos and you have an eye-catching cookbook perfect for any lending library.

After hearing an interview with the author on NPR, we immediately bought this book. We've made over a dozen of the recipes so far, and our friends love helping us make and sample the concoctions.
