The idea behind getting Lakeland Kitchen ice-cream maker was to make lots of sorbets and the occasional ice-cream and in doing so being able to control the calories provided by one of the most luscious desserts. But I needed a guide for my icy-desserts. Ice Cream! by Pippa Cuthbert and Lindsay Cameron Wilson provided just that and much much more.
From semifreddo to gelato, granita to sorbet, this book delves into the cool world of ice cream, exploring classic flavours like vanilla, chocolate and strawberry along with more unusual ones such as Apple and Rosemary frozen yogurt or Geranium Leaf sorbert and some even more than more unusual which will fire up the imagination such as Goat's cheese and honey ice cream.
Ice Cream! is beautifully presented, not every recipe has a photo but not every recipe needs one either. Having said that, there are plenty of pictures which give presentation ideas. After the introduction, the next 20 pages are devoted to the chemistry of ice-cream, ingredients, tips and types. Followed by over 80 ice cream recipes for all occasions.
Let's remember that an ice-cream is not only for summer, it is also great for celebrations whatever the weather therefore having a tub of homemade ice-cream ready is rather useful so is this book.
Ice Cream! is published by New Holland and written by Pippa Cuthbert & Lindsay Cameron Wilson retail price £9.99.
