Ice Cream & Friends  by Food52

Little description:A fun collection of 60 recipes, riffs, toppings, and serving ideas for ice creams of all styles.

Ice cream is more fun with friends, but also with cones, sprinkles, candied nuts, hot honey—you get where we’re going. So the editors of Food52 brought together sixty well-tested recipes for frozen desserts of all styles and a billion (give or take a few) ideas for toppings and add-ons. There are surprising flavors—think cinnamon roll ice cream, coffee frozen custard, and grilled watermelon cremolada—and spins on enduring favorites, such as spiced fudgesicles, cherry-mint snow cones, and even a chocolate-hazelnut baked Alaska. There are Saltine and waffle sandwiches, boozy floats, and something called “spoom.” There are tricks for making ice cream without a maker and spiffing up the store-bought stuff, and Hail Marys for when things go wrong (like when—whoops!—all the ice cream melts). But don’t be nervous: even if you’ve never made ice cream before, you’re in good hands with this no-fuss, all-fun book. Consider it your permission to play (and eat a ton of really good ice cream).

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

What’s better than chocolate… Ice cream, of course! Yey, Food52 created another amazing book. Filled with tips and pross, the recipes and photos just jump at you, calling to try this lusious and cold treats…. But what blew my persecution about icy cold desserts was the idea that ice creams don’t have to be sweet. What a news! The book provided couple of bizzare recipes for those who have the savory tooth: Black Pepper Feta Ice Cream (pg.139), Cucumber Sherbet (pg. 140), Burnt Toast Ice Cream (pg. 148), Beat Ice Milk or Avocado Gelado.. For more fruity, spicy, nutty, chocolaty goodness look in this book.

Love the size of the book. It’s not big but loaded with some icy creations that will make your taste buds dunce and melt from the squeal and delight.
