"Frozen Desserts" is a fairly large cookbook, but that's o.k. because so is the dark font the publisher used for tired, old eyes like mine. That, and the photo of the strawberry ice cream on the front of the cookbook is what initially sold me. The added bonus was all the info on the types of recipes included, how to serve, how to store, basic recipes, key techniques, and then all the "fancy" recipes for ice cream and gelato, sorbets and granitas.
There is even a section of key ingredients and tools for making all the recipes. The photos are professionally done and will make you want to try every recipe. I was not disappointed with the Strawberry Ice Cream that I made and enjoyed on Mother's Day! I still missed having my kiddos with me, but the ice cream helped comfort me that day. We'll have to plan to make the Pistachio Gelato or the Chocolate Sorbet when they are here again.
You'll find Frozen Desserts in Williams-Sonoma. It is one of their "Mastering" series and the ISBN number is 13:978-0-7432-7106-6 Copyright 2006
