When I'm bored in meetings, I think up ice cream recipes. Truly, it's hard to be unhappy when one is thinking about ice cream and, if Jeni is your guide, the flavor combinations are endlessly fascinating. I actually lived in the Columbus, Ohio when Jeni's opened her first scoop shop in the popular North Market near downtown and it was a rare day when I didn't stop to see what Jeni had going on because her flavors were something I had never seen before (her ylang ylang and fennel ice cream is perfection, btw). Now, you can make up your own funky flavors at home using this fantastic cookbook as a guide - and what's better is that all recipes were tested using a $50 home ice cream maker (read: these are not commercial recipes pared down to smaller volumes which may or may not scale well).
From the Publisher:
"Ice cream perfection in a word: Jeni's." –Washington Post
James Beard Award Winner: Best Baking and Dessert Book of 2011!
At last, addictive flavors, and a breakthrough method for making creamy, scoopable ice cream at home, from the proprietor of Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams, whose artisanal scooperies in Ohio are nationally acclaimed.
Now, with her debut cookbook, Jeni Britton Bauer is on a mission to help foodies create perfect ice creams, yogurts, and sorbets―ones that are every bit as perfect as hers―in their own kitchens. Frustrated by icy and crumbly homemade ice cream, Bauer invested in a $50 ice cream maker and proceeded to test and retest recipes until she devised a formula to make creamy, sturdy, lickable ice cream at home. Filled with irresistible color photographs, this delightful cookbook contains 100 of Jeni's jaw-droppingly delicious signature recipes―from her Goat Cheese with Roasted Cherries to her Queen City Cayenne to her Bourbon with Toasted Buttered Pecans. Fans of easy-to-prepare desserts with star quality will scoop this book up.
