Food 52 is a favorite website for foodies, and the editors have lately been putting together cookbooks that include many of the recipes from the website. Food52 Ice Cream and Friends: 60 Recipes and Riffs for Sorbets, Sandwiches, No-Churn Ice Creams, and More is one of these books, and anyone who likes ice cream (is there anyone who doesn’t?) will definitely want to pick up a copy. Not only are there recipes for innovative and unique ice cream flavors, but there are also recipes for sugar cones and other shaped cookie-type accompaniments to ice cream, as well as homemade sprinkles (a reason alone to buy the book). There are great instructions for making ice cream with and without ice cream makers, and plenty of hints for serving, both to friends and family.
While there are basic ice cream flavors featured and variations of chocolate and vanilla, some of the more original flavors include Lavender Coconut Milk Ice Cream (which, incidentally, is fabulous), Burnt Toast Ice Cream, Dark Chocolate Rosemary Ice Cream, Grasshopper Ice Cream Bars, and Grilled Watermelon Cremolada with Honey and Lime to name a few. Every recipe made so far has turned out perfectly. Most of the recipes are fairly easy, so even beginners will be successful in their ice cream making endeavors.
There are recipes for popsicles, ice cream cakes, ice cream pies, frozen desserts, and even savory sorbets. Although most may assume this is a book for summer, there are enough mouthwatering recipes to inspire everyone to make ice cream year round. Highly recommended, Food52 Ice Cream and Friends: 60 Recipes and Riffs for Sorbets, Sandwiches, No-Churn Ice Creams, and More is great for gifts, and a must for every cookbook collection.
