Review

At last, here is a book that specializes on making your own ice cream with addictive flavors using a breakthrough method for making creamy, scoopable ice cream at home, from the owners of Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn, NY.  Ample Hills Creamery’s ice cream is not only a treat for the locals, but a destination sought out by many a weary traveler.  Filled with irresistible color photographs, this delightful cookbook contains a variety of signature flavors that will surely satisfy your sweet tooth.  A friend had a social event with the best ice cream I had ever tasted.  I couldn’t believe it was homemade.  I asked where she got the recipes and she gave me the name of this book.  When I first made my own batch, I was floored! It was phenomenal and had a texture and coldness I never imagined homemade ice cream could have. I spent all night looking through the book and marveling at the complex flavor pairings and the techniques the authors employ. If you are a ice cream enthusiast or just someone with a sweet tooth, I highly recommend this book!
