Even if you're not a vegan, you will love these vegan ice cream recipes. I had to give up dairy & soy this year for allergy reasons and was disappointed with most "frozen dessert" substitutes. One night we tried Van Leeuwen at a shop and I was blown away by the quality of their vegan ice cream. Bought the book so I could enjoy the treat more often. The recipes aren't hard; you may have to special order a few ingredients but once you have them on stock it's pretty easy. I've made "real" ice cream many times in the past and these vegan recipes are straightforward and delicious.
It ain't easy to make real ice cream, but this book makes it entirely doable. Well written and easy to follow an otherwise complex process to make rally great ice cream. Never again the store-bought variety!
It was a bonus to learn how the company was formed and what their production standards are. Even though summer is officially over I will be making ice cream at home over the next few months knowing that the quality ingredients I use will exclude any of the items used in commercial ice cream I'd like to avoid. You will be inspired to do the same.
Although I haven't had a chance to make any ice cream, I love the story and the company's philosophy and commitment to excellence, from sourced ingredients to commitment, and the little extra stories from each of the owners. I look forward to stopping by one of their stores or ice cream trucks during my travels!
This book will take your ice-cream skills to the next level. Delicious recipes and practical advise for perfecting ice cream. Your family and friends will be amazed by your creations. Be brave and try the goat cheese ice cream recipe. It’s amazing.
Beautiful book, with wonderful, intimate descriptions of ingredients and processes. I bought this because I am dairy-allergic; the sorbets pop in your mouth, the vegan ice creams are spectacular. Then my daughter got ahold of the book and has started working thru the "normal" ice creams with ecstatic reviews. Thank you Laura, Ben and Pete - this is special.
My wife and I found this book at Anthropologie, but saw it was cheaper here on Amazon. I made the Roasted Banana ice cream and added a fudge swirl...we devoured it! Lots of creative recipes and helpful hints on consistent custards.
Love the earl grey ice cream recipe in this book. First saw the recipe online and later on decided to buy the book as well. This book is filled with lovely photos and delicious recipes. Also included is the story of how this company started (yay small business owners!). A beautiful and lovely book for ice cream lovers.
