Ripe seasonal fruits. Fragrant vanilla, toasted nuts, and spices. Heavy cream and bright liqueurs. Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate.

  • Best Ice Cream Book Out There!

    I LOVE this book! When I first purchased my ice cream maker I was searching for recipe books and Im so glad this was the first one I bought (my only other exclusively Ice Cream Recipe Book is Ben & Jerry's that I got in Vermont at their factory). I was drawn to David Lebovitz because he worked for many years at Chez Panisse, which is close to where I grew up and an amazing restaurant that launched a food revolution. His basic, tried & true recipes at great (chocolate, vanilla, coffee, etc) but there are also decadent recipes (malted chocolate, Vietnamese coffee, creme fraiche, roquefort-honey, etc etc etc) and amazing new recipes that I just wouldn't have thought of (lavander-honey, goat cheese, rice gelato, orange-szechwan pepper, chartreuse, kinako, etc etc etc.) AND that is just the ice cream section. He also includes a Sorbets & Sherberts, Granitas chapters for more frozen amazingness as well as Sauces & Toppings, Mix Ins and Vessels chapters to add to your frozen dessert enjoyment. But, besides all of that (and the truly beautiful photography) the thing I love the MOST about David Lebovitz are the stories that he puts behind each and every recipe. When I read this book (and believe me, it is like 1/2 reading for enjoyment, 1/2 wanting to try every single recipe archived here) I feel like I know Mr. Lebovitz. He has created a new, heightened love of food and cooking for me and I am now a devoted fan. I have since purchased several other of his books (all great) and constantly follow his blog for more dessert goodness! All in all, BUY THIS BOOK ;)
