More ice cream on the brain...what's the book with best variety?

nooodles | Jul 14, 2005 11:07 AM

All this ice cream talk has me seriously considering buying a book. I haven't flipped through too many, but is there one that has a great variety of recipes? I want one with many different ice cream making processes that I can build off of. Examples:

-cooked custard
-non-cooked dairy based
-non dairy
-ice cream vs. gelato vs. sorbet vs. sherbet vs. Italian ice vs. slushie (margaritas, anyone?)
-different kinds/ratios of dairy
-cooked fruit
-raw fruit
-flavoring with extracts vs. oils vs. juices
-dealing with chocolate

I guess what I really need is the homemade ice cream bible. Is there a great book out there, or is this something we should look into writing?

Gorgeous photos are a BIG plus!
