Publisher Comments:

Ripe seasonal fruits. Fragrant vanilla, toasted nuts, and spices. Heavy cream and bright liqueurs. Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Every luscious flavor is grist for the chill in David Lebovitz's ecstatic guide to the pleasures of homemade ice creams, sorbets, granitas, and more. With an emphasis on intense and sophisticated flavors, an international flair, and a bountiful helping of seasoned technique, this collection of frozen treats ranges from classic and comforting (Chocolate Sorbet) to contemporary and cutting edge (Mojito Granita). Spilling over with scrumptious sauces, crunchy toppings, and surprising mix-ins, THE PERFECT SCOOP transforms simple ice cream into a knockout dessert. A generous collection of classic and contemporary recipes for ice creams, sorbets, granitas, and accompaniments, from a former Chez Panisse pastry chef and popular dessert book author. Includes more than 200 recipes and 45 full-color food photos. Features in-depth material on successful ice cream making, from choosing the right equipment and the best ingredients to crafting the perfect custard. Most recipes are accompanied by "Perfect Pairings"--variations and garnishes for turning homemade ice cream into fun and fanciful desserts.

Review:

"Lebovitz, a former Chez Panisse pastry chef and author of The Great Chocolate Book, credits his 'first and craziest, most insane summer job' — as an ice cream scooper at a soda fountain — with inspiring his lifelong devotion to ice cream. The author's 25 years of experience as a frozen-dessert maker are put to excellent use in this wittily written, detailed volume. Step-by-step photos and advice on selecting an ice cream machine will reassure ice cream amateurs. Experts and novices alike will appreciate tips for selecting the best citrus and creating unusual but complementary pairings (apricots go nicely with Olive Oil Ice Cream). An impressive array of flavors is available for the making, like Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, Vanilla Frozen Yogurt, Fresh Fig Ice Cream and Pear Pecorino Ice Cream. Sorbet, sherbet and granita also are explored in depth, as are ice cream 'vessels,' such as brownies and crepes. Great photos and plenty of practical advice combine to make this an appealing and useful resource for the dessert aficionado." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

This is it! Finally, a really good ice cream book. I received the recommendation for this book online, so it's only appropriate that I recommend it online also. So drag out the ice cream maker that you swore you'd use every week - and really start using it!
