I wish this book had more pictures in it, but the recipes are good. It does have some pictures, and they are all very nice, full color, large photos. I just really love it when there is one for every recipe.
It is a very comprehensive book for ice cream lovers- it discusses ingredients, equipment, and techniques. The step by step directions are complete and clear. There are ample recipes for ice creams, ices, sorbets, and other frozen treats based on fruits/juice/creams. I loved also that there are topping recipes included, such as the perfect whipped cream, fudge sauce, ect.
It is a paperback. It's easy to handle and not too thick or heavy, but there are a lot of good recipes in it. Maple Walnut is my favorite. I appreciated that the author remembers even little things- like removing skins off walnuts- that are included to help the ice cream be the best it can be.
I love chocolate, and there are a lot of really good looking chocolate ice cream recipes that I can't wait to try. The ingredients are very easy to find, but these recipes do often use a LOT of cream and custard type cooked recipes with eggs. I did not see a lot of condensed milk in the recipes, instead, where I'd expect to see that, the recipes called for milk and sugar. The recipes don't take a lot of shortcuts, but that all equals to the very best ice cream in my experience.
From there it went to recipes! When I saw there was a recipe for pineapple sherbert I knew that was going to be our first one. I LOVE pineapple sherbert but can rarely find it in a store. So that was what we made. We both agreed the hardest part was straining and squeezing all the pineapple juice out. But it was so good! There are recipes in there for several other sherberts, which I am sure we will try!
Beyond sherberts there are other frozen treats like ice cream granitas and more.
I gave Ice Cream Social a 5-star review because it can be used as a teaching book because of the information provided in the first chapter, it's full of recipes and each recipe has a tip to help make the recipe easier and we had a blast making our first sherbert together as a family. I received this book at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% my own.
I have already made the lime sherbet and it was fresh and full of flavor (much better than store bought and not unnaturally green). I have my eye on London Fog (Earl Gray) ice cream next.
This book would be perfect to gift with an ice cream maker on a wedding registry. The recipe book that comes with the machines is very basic!
