Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream: Sweet Seasonal Recipes for Ice Creams, Sorbets, and Toppings Made with Local Ingredientsby Molly Moon Neitzel and Christina Spittler
Synopses & Reviews
When Molly Moon Neitzel opened the first of her five boutique ice cream scoop shops in the spring of 2008, it was an instant hit with the folks of Seattle. So much so that they've been happily lining up for a cone or signature sundae ever since, and now you can make her delicious ice creams, sorbets, and toppings at home! Arranged in the book by season — with the focus on using local, fresh fruit and herbs in combinations that are both familiar and surprising — you will find recipes for most flavors imaginable and even those a little unimaginable. From childhood favorites to avant-garde, adult-only fare, including the classic Vanilla Bean to the exotic Cardamom to the adventurous Balsamic Strawberry and the comforting Maple Bacon (try a scoop on oatmeal for a special winter breakfast treat!), these ice creams and sorbets are both simple and fun to make. Of course, they're even more fun to eat!
"Blackberry Sage Ice Cream? Salted Caramel Ice Cream? Cucumber Mint Sorbet? Welcome to the flavors of this cookbook from the Seattle ice cream parlor owned by Nietzel and where Spittler is head chef. Together, they want to show everyone how easy and fun it is to make tasty gourmet ice cream at home — and they deliver....Beginners will appreciate the simplicity of these recipes while aficionados will be intrigued by the new flavors to try." Library Journal
"Local ice cream maven Molly Moon Neitzel and pastry chef Christina Spittler take a typically summertime treat into winter, spring and fall with this invitingly illustrated guide revealing secrets from Moon's famous sweet shop. From honey lavender to maple bacon and the always appropriate chocolate and vanilla varieties, the book offers recipes fit for the most discerning cones, plus a few tips on ice cream cakes, sandwiches and shakes." Seattle Magazine
"If ice cream had a fan club, I'd probably be the president. That's why books about ice cream make me salivate like a dog at a bone store. Seattle-based Molly Moon just launched a new drool-worthy book, Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream. And, I love how the book is organized by seasons — like Mexican Chocolate ice cream and Blood Orange sorbet for winter, Blueberry Frozen Yogurt for spring, and Pumpkin Clove ice cream for fall. No matter the season, the book encourages using fresh, local ingredients and experimenting with really fun flavor combinations. Don't these photos make you want to dive right in?" Oh Joy!
"In her new book, Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream, Neitzel and her co-author and co-worker Christina Spittler share home versions of the shop's recipes, from ice cream flavors to awesome additions like butterscotch sauce and vanilla bean caramel and candied bacon. Neitzel (who worked a college job making ice cream in Montana) also shares some of her favorite places to source ingredients, advice on ice cream success at home, and some of her business philosophy." The Seattle Times
