Overview
-

Twelve years after the publication of their previous book, the largest selling book on ICES that has ever been published, Caroline and Robin Weir return with the ultimate guide to Ice Cream, Gelato, and Sorbet. Since the first publication, over a decade of research and millions of calories have gone into this new book which has over 400 recipes covering ice creams, gelato, graniti, bombes, parfaits, instructions on making wafers, biscuits, punches, even ice creams for diabetics and vegans.

This NEW book, with all areas expanded and updated, is for the beginner, the enthusiast, the cook, the expert, and the professional chef. All the recipes are written in the clearest terms in Metric, cup measurements, and Imperial weights and measures. All techniques are described in the simplest terms and all your questions are covered in this comprehensive book. There are new revelations, on the history of ice cream as well as the origin of the ice cream cone, plus dozens of new pictures and illustrations from the authors constantly expanding collection; there is also a section on both penny licks and some hilarious soda fountain lingo.

There is also a comprehensive section on the physics and chemistry of all ices, as well as enough information to enable you to make almost anything into an ice. Should you want to go BIG on ice cream there is a section on equipment as well as a section on the chemistry and physics of ice cream and ices. If you have never tasted homemade ice cream, you are in for a revelation. If you have the previous book you are in for many inspired new flavors. These are not ice creams loaded with junk confectionery, these are pure unalloyed, straightforward ices, made from easily obtainable ingredients without additives.

REVIEWS
-

…filled with 400 recipes for all skill levels as well as more glorious history of ices from all over England and Europe and even America (the older book I have is also full of wonderful stories and great recipes). I recommend his books… they are indispensable when you are in the mood for the best ice cream ever. This is killer chocolate and the trick with the cocoa is genius. For it to be as good as Berthillon, it would have to be eaten in Paris (location, location, location). Absent that -- this is great chocolate -- one of the best I've had.
