Chocolate or strawberry sorbet? Orange popscicle or rum and raisin ice cream? Mojito granita or sweet potato ice cream with maple glazed pecans? This collection of frozen treats ranges from the classic and the comforting to the cutting edge. All come with an emphasis on intense and sophisticated flavours, and are served with a bountiful helping of the author's expert techniques. As well as easy-to-follow recipes for a dazzling range of ice creams, sorbets and granitas, The Perfect Scoop features irresistible toppings and sauces -from classic hot fudge to exotic candied red beans and cajeta (a Mexican form of caramel)- and mouth-watering mix-ins, such as chocolate chip cookie dough, buttercrunch toffee and honey-sesame brittle. The author blurs the line between sweet and savoury, recommending ice creams made of intriguing ingredients like parsley, basil, black pepper or avocado, and offers an array of innovative serving suggestions. With an essential equipment overview, advice on what to look for when purchasing ingredients specifically for use in frozen desserts, and expert technical advice, this oh-so-cool book contains all the info you'll ever need on how to create the perfect scoop.

Reviews for The Perfect Scoop
Best ice cream book so far
Based on amazon reviews I ordered this book. I also have the ben and jerry recipe book, but I wasn,t quite satisfied with the texture of the ice creams of that book. I have tried vanilla philadelphia style with toasted salted butter pecans, maple wet walnut, chocolate with white chocolate truffles, Philadelphia style chocolate with peanut patties, pear caramel, raspberry, raspberry swirl, raspberry sherbet, dried apricot pistachio, toasted coconut, vanilla frozen yoghurt and passion fruit ice-cream. The recipies are detailed with good instructions. There are plenty of easy recipes, but also very intricate time consuming recipies. Check if the recipe contains eggs and if it does, it's one of the more difficult ones.
I've loved every ice-cream and my husband and friends have also enjoyed this book. I love the texture of these ice creams. By changing the add ins you can make innumerous different flavours and the book contains also very exotic flavours from avocado to blue cheese/honey ice cream. Buy this. You might gain a few pounds, but you won't regret it. by Jenna Kaijasilta
