Book Description

May 11 2010

When you think of the most delicious and fresh gelato and sorbetto in America, you are craving Ciao Bella. The premier gelato and sorbetto maker in the country may be known for using the world’s finest ingredients—Sicilian lemons, Valrhona chocolate, Louisiana pralines—but you don’t need to travel the globe to experience the bold flavors yourself. All you need is a handful of simple, fresh ingredients; a standard ice cream machine; and your imagination.

The magic of this book is that once you learn how to make just one easy custard or simple syrup base, you can dream up an infinite number of flavors. In addition to being able to re-create Ciao Bella’s award-winning favorites, like Key Lime with Graham Cracker Gelato or Hazelnut Biscotti Gelato, you’ll be able to invent your own combina­tions and mix and match more than 100 unbeliev­ably indulgent frozen desserts.

From the PLAIN BASE:
• Italian classics such as GIANDUJA and PISTACHIO
• New American favorites like APPLE CARAMEL CRISP and PUMPKIN AND SPICE
• Exotic options from around the world like CHOCOLATE CHAI and MEXICAN COFFEE 
• Kid-pleasers like CHOCOLATE S’MORES
• Make-your-own granita combinations (no ice cream machine required!) like COFFEE/CINNA­MON and RASPBERRY/SAUTERNES/HONEY

A special section called “Amazing Endings” tops off this delicious volume, containing fun ideas for how to serve gelato and sorbetto as the pros do—or with a more personal creative touch. With hundreds of helpful tips, information on the best ingredients, and a list of sources, this gorgeously photographed book ensures that the best gelato and sorbetto you can imagine are just a churn away.

NOW, WITH THE HELP OF CIAO BELLA co-owner F. W. Pearce and chef Danilo Zecchin, making gelato and sorbetto in your own kitchen couldn’t be easier. You’ll add an exclamation point to any meal with these tantalizing flavors:

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Gelato book ever!!! May 2 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have tried a few ice cream recipe books with my kitchen aid ice cream maker, but they usually were slightly granular in texture and also very fattening. With this book, the fat content is lower (for most the ratio is 1 cup heavy cream and 2 cups whole milk) but the taste is so much better! The flavors are wonderful and they come out incredibly creamy every time. I haven't had any granular one yet. The Dolce de Leche is a family favorite as is the chocolate. If you don't believe me, try the recipe in the write-up. That's what sold me on this book and I haven't look back yet. I am actually contemplating selling the other 2 books.

Received the book in great condition and on time. The book is filled with great recipes, and they are fairly simple for a beginner like myself. I have made a few recipes so far and the family has enjoyed each :) I would recommend this book for anyone starting out making gelato at home. It is a great book full of recipes and gives you the basics needed

5.0 out of 5 stars Drool! July 11 2012
By Randee
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I originally was purchasing another book and this book came as an additional suggestion. Normally, I am one to brush off up-sells. I am so glad I didn't. These guys have it right when it comes to making frozen delights! I have tried numerous recipes in this book and all have exceeded my expectations. I purchased this book mainly for Gelato ideas. I never really understood how fantastic sorbetto's could be but I am now sold and am rapidly turning summer harvests into sorbetto's. I know that this book will most likely become my "Go To" book for Gelato and Sorbetto's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! Feb. 19 2012
By Siobhan
I had just purchased the Kitchen Aid ice cream maker when I bought this book, so I literally had no idea how to make ice cream. This book has been a god-send, with easy step by step instructions and recipes/flavours that are definitely delicious and easy find and make. My only complaint is that after you make the ice cream and put it in the freezer, it goes rock solid. My recommendation is to eat the gelato as soon as it is ready.
