Major, major downside for European cooks is that it has only USA cup measurements.... I thought this would be OK, but it has proved to be just SO UTTERLY ANNOYING that I have downgraded the rating to two stars from five.. Such a pity.
Honestly, when a measurement is given as " 3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons" I just want to shake the author and say' get a grip, man'!'! How do American cooks put up with this ???
For the more tolerant cook, who doesn't mind doing lots of maths, no problems. But oh, boy, that's not me....wish I had sent this book back!
There certainly are a lot of recipes. Whether they are any good or not depends on my multilingual and computing skills and remains to be seen. The constant need to convert introduces an element of risk that I could do without.
* A huge range of ice cream recipes
* Each recipe offers suggestions for alternatives
* Recipes are easy to follow
* There are recipes for ice creams you never knew existed e.g. Lavender Ice Cream
* Some really inspirational recipes
* All of the recipes I have tried have worked well - try the chocolate truffle ice cream - it is to die for!
* Not a single photograph in the book, just hand drawn images (and not many of those)
* Measurements are in cups - you will need to buy /own a set of measuring cups
* American names for ingredients used e.g. cornstarch, heavy milk, half and half etc (you can look these up on the internet)
* Some recipes are very sweet but they can be easily adapted once you have tried them
* The paper that the book is printed on doesn't feel of a very high quality
