Since we’re in the heat of the summer, when I saw this book; Big Gay Ice Cream: Saucy Stories & Frozen Treats: Going All the Way with Ice Cream by Bryan Petroff and Douglas Quint, it could not get here fast enough! I’ve been really wanting to try homemade ice cream and I thought this book would be able to help me out with that. I cannot get over how much I love this book. It’s laid out in the format of a high school yearbook, complete with famous chefs and others celebrities autographs inside the front cover. The Chapters are:
Freshman Year – Ice Cream 101 – everything you need to know about the must have ingredients
Sophomore Year – Dress up your ice cream with homemade toppings and sauce – The Whisky Walnuts on p. 49 sound amazing, as well as the Blueberry-Balsamic sauce on p. 67.
Junior Year – Some assembly required-Sundays, floats, and shakes – My favorite chapter! Nuclear Winter Sunday on p. 97 and the Choinkwich on p. 120-121 are killing me right about now!
Senior Year – Let’s go all the way! Sorbets and ice creams – P. 142-143 features Cranberry & White Chocolate Sorbet that I know would have my family screaming it looks so refreshing. This is the chapter that I was hoping for when I found this book. I just need to get an ice cream makers first!
This book is no doubt one of the THE best ‘cookbooks’ I’ve ever laid my eyes on. It really makes me what to jump up and down and SCREAM for ICE CREAM!! Highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a cool book and loves ice cream.
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
