Ripe seasonal fruits. Fragrant vanilla, toasted nuts, and spices. Heavy cream and bright liqueurs. Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate.

With an emphasis on intense and sophisticated flavors and a bountiful helping of the author’s expert techniques, this collection of frozen treats ranges from classic (Chocolate Sorbet) to comforting (Tin Roof Ice Cream), contemporary (Mojito Granita) to cutting edge (Pear-Pecorino Ice Cream), and features an arsenal of sauces, toppings, mix-ins, and accompaniments (such as Lemon Caramel Sauce, Peanut Brittle, and Profiteroles) capable of turning simple ice cream into perfect scoops of pure delight.

Publishers Weekly Review

Not well formatted.
Make sure to check out the sample of this book before purchasing, then do the same for competitor's versions of this ebook. The book itself is fantastic, but the iBook version does not let you adjust the font size or color. And that's too bad because the font is TINY on some pages! It's too hard to read. I tried a sample of the ebook from another source (you all know who I mean), and that one does allow you to adjust the font size. As much as I would love to buy this from Apple, I'm afraid a book that has text too tiny to read is just not practical.
Not like any iBook I have bought
It is like this is a PDF or something weird.
Can't change font size or do any other iBook feature.
Don't buy this if you plan on reading on your iPhone
Content is great - but the orientation of the book is locked into landscape mode, so you cannot view this in portrait mode … meaning, if you are trying to view on an iPhone forget it unless you like zooming into 3-4 different portions of the page just to read the details.
