Plus, I'm happy to have the author explain techniques like the best way to layer a "ripple" into your ice cream. Can't wait to try some of these out! Very informative and occasionally humorous though sometimes the author's sarcasm is a bit off-putting. Has a variety of recipes and some very nice photographs.

Beautiful book with fantastic recipes that gives you everything you might wish for in regards of icecream and what you want to it with! Who doesn't love icecream?

This book has a huge selection of a lot of different ice-creams, a lot of different flavours and ideas that really everyone can find their personal favourites.
I love that it does not only include milk-based ice crea Beautiful book with fantastic recipes that gives you everything you might wish for in regards of icecream and what you want to it with! I love that it does not only include milk-based ice creams but also fruit based ones! A lot of books only show the more typical ice creams and while that is fine, i love that this book includes a lot more than that and with that offers a recipes for really everyone!
I also love that it includes recipes for cookies to make ice cream sandwiches of course! All the recipes are fantastic! The only two small little thing are, - that i did not find in this book was a milk-based ice cream without Egg in it. I get that the egg gives the ice a smoother and it also makes it possible to freeze it and keep it longer without basically just having a huge brick when you take it back out.
But it would still have been nice to have the option. Now i am not a hundred percent sure if it really has not even one egg-less milk based recipes. Its possible there is a LOT of recipes in here so i might have overlooked it. But i think it would have been a very fitting addition in a book that offers so many options to have. I already mentioned in other cookbook reviews i did that i LOVE too many pictures in my cookbooks. They take such stunning pictures of the ones they share, it would have been fantastic to see all of them!
But since both of those "complains" are very personal to me i didn't want to take any points from the overall rating because its just way to stunning of a book to not give it the full stars! If you love sweets this is defiantly a MUST! Shelves: whats-cooking-group , maze-book-discussions , cooking.

Philadelphia style which is with no eggs, and custar When I first reviewed this book, I gave it five stars based on its comprehensiveness and the unusual flavors I was excited to try. Philadelphia style which is with no eggs, and custard based, which is with eggs but it also has some of the most fun, unusual flavors that ice cream aficionados will be clamoring to try.
With flavors like: saffron black pepper pear pecorino parsley goat cheese rice avocado lavender honey roquefort honey olive oil you've gotta give Lebovitz 5 stars for creativity. But once you get past the novelty of the creativity, you're still left with a mouth-watering, delicious batch of ice cream.

This is the book Steph refers to as "The Ice Cream Bible" and I have to say it's pretty informative and has some top-rate recipes and techniques. I've already found one recipe that I would modify the next time though, that being the basic Philly-style Vanilla which turned out like cold fluffy whipped cream, even though I used the 2 c.
