Nothing makes a better dessert after an outdoor gathering or summer party than ice cream, except, of course homemade gelato. Morgan Morano has outdone herself in The Art of Making Gelato: 50 Flavors to Make at Home. In this excellent cookbook, Morano explains the differences between ice cream and gelato, and most importantly, shows step-by-step in beautiful photographs, how to make perfect gelato at home. She talks about ice cream and gelato machines and the best for individual needs. She includes information on the best ingredients to use; most of the recipes call for easy-to-find ingredients that we either have at home already or that can be purchased at any grocery store.

While the book includes traditional favorite flavors like chocolate, cherry, and lemon, the best thing about this book is that it has dozens of very unique, mouthwatering flavors that everyone will want to try: Bacio (Chocolate-Hazelnut Kiss), Lavender, Frutti di Bosco (Forest Berries), Crema Fiorentina(Florentine Cream), Biscoff (Belgian Spice Cookie), Crema di Agrumi (Citrus Cream), Mandorla e Arancia (Almond and Orange), to name a few. Also included are sorbets for those who don’t want dairy. The original location in Hanover, New Hampshire serves twelve to sixteen flavors that are made fresh daily, and are also served at her gelaterias in a few other New England locations.

All told, if you want to learn to make heavenly gelato at home, this is the book for you. The recipes are easy to follow and they turn out picture perfect.
