Our family loves ice cream that instead of cakes for our birthday, we go for the ice cream cakes. I’ve always wanted to make our own ice cream so that I can have better control of the ingredients that we’re consuming. In Food52 Ice Cream and Friends: 60 Recipes and Riffs for Sorbets, Sandwiches, No-Churn Ice Creams, and More, I am well-prepared and on my way to making some goodies this summer with the family.
This is a well put-together book, featuring twists on the classic flavors of vanilla and chocolate, with new and interesting flavors like Lemongrass Chile Ginger Ice Cream. It’s a good combination of new and classic. I’m looking forward to making mochi as that’s my favorite ice cream topping.
I think there are only a couple of recipes I found didn’t fit in line with the rest of the book. For example, with the “How to Make a Milkshake Every Which Way” recipe, it was basically add ice cream and milk to blend to your desired consistency.
But overall, I think this is a great book to have in your collection, especially if you’re an ice cream fan.
