Editorial Reviews

Review

“You just want to keep the blender running all the time.” (Project Foodie)

“Ried goes further than anyone before him with his milkshake recipes: He writes about technique.” (Time Out Chicago)

“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.” (Bookpage)

Absolutely needed a "kicked up" modern day milkshake book.

Tons of great ideas from classic milkshakes to new age combinations.

You can however, look inside the hardcover version of the book.

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.

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 gave this book to my husband for his birthday because he loves all things ice-cream. I was a little disappointed though because most recipes are a little off the wall. To our surprise a lot of recipes called for sorbet. Also, some ingredients seem like they would be tough to attain unless you live near a whole foods or wegmans.

I just received the book, and I got so excited as I perused through the recipes! They are excellently created with a combinations of ingredients that I would have never put together. I'm a loyal and trusted follower of American Test Kitchen, so after another reviewer mentioned Adam's experienced background included the ATK editor, I knew I had to get these books too. I can't wait to try some of the recipes (my brother and I are somewhat competitive when it comes to making the best milkshakes- childish I know, but it keeps us youthful!) so I know these recipes will boost me in the competition!

I apologize for doing this as I have yet to buy the book, nor have I checked it out from my library either, but when I was looking for the title here on Amazon, both an out-of-print hardcover and this paperback came up. One quick comparison showed me that it is not only the same author, but also the same publisher and the same number of pages. For whatever reason, Amazon has their reviews listed separately and you cannot (currently anyways) look inside the paperback version of the book. You can however, look inside the hardcover version of the book. You will also find (as of this writing) twelve reviews for the hardback, two four-star reviews and ten five-star reviews. And, for the complainers, I posted this as a five-star review based upon the combined average of all reviews, obviously rounded up since we can't do partial stars...

You might also note that ten out of the twelve reviews for the hardcover are from "Amazon Verified Purchases," something that I look for when reading reviews. Also, as one of the reviewers for the hardcover pointed out (I'd missed this) Adam Reid comes to us as a former member of America's Test Kitchen; apparently he brings that same ethos to the subject of milk shakes in this book. Lucky us!

I bought this as a gift for my Dad who loves milkshakes. He just loved this book. He's put several recipes to good use already. Very solid choice for this type of book.
