your favorite ice cream recipe book
Just got a 1-qt. ice cream maker, but am unhappy with the Ben & Jerry's ice cream book (they use egg yolks but don't cook them at all, and none of the flavors I've tried so far do not taste anything like what I can pick off the shelf).
Anyone got any recommendations? (Extra points for including good sorbet recipes).
I don't own it, but have borrowed it from the library after someone paraphrased a recipe from it for me here: THE ULTIMATE FROZEN DESSERT BOOK by BRUCE WEINSTEIN
Recently made orange julius sherbet from it, which was fantastic. Earlier this year, I made peanut butter gelato--divine! I need to get my own copy of this one.
Edit: In fact, you can find both these recipes (paraphrased) here on CH if they're of interest and you can try 'em yourself.
Peanut Butter Gelato:
Orange Amaretto Julius Sherbet:
And here's the book:
Complete title of the book is one of the things I like so much about it. Here ya go:
The Ultimate Frozen Dessert Book: A Complete Guide to Gelato, Sherbert, Granita, and Semmifreddo, Plus Frozen Cakes, Pies, Mousses, Chiffon Cakes, and More With Hundreds of Ways to Customize Every Recipe to Your Own Taste
I'm a fan of The Perfect Scoop, by David Lebovitz. Lots of great recipes for ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogurt, plus stuff to go with.
It was a selection for the erstwhile dessert cookbook of the month project, so there are lots of reports. Here's the master thread (leading to other threads): http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/538600
