Description

Ripe seasonal fruits. Fragrant vanilla, toasted nuts, and spices. Heavy cream and bright liqueurs. Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Every luscious flavor imaginable is grist for the chill in The Perfect Scoop, pastry chef David Lebovitz’s gorgeous guide to the pleasures of homemade ice creams, sorbets, granitas, and more.

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

Feb 19, 2007 – Lebovitz, a former Chez Panisse pastry chef and author of The Great Chocolate Book, credits his "first and craziest, most insane summer job"— as an ice cream scooper at a soda fountain—with inspiring his lifelong devotion to ice cream. The author's 25 years of experience as a frozen-dessert maker are put to excellent use in this wittily written, detailed volume. Step-by-step photos and advice on selecting an ice cream machine will reassure ice cream amateurs. Experts and novices alike will appreciate tips for selecting the best citrus and creating unusual but complementary pairings (apricots go nicely with Olive Oil Ice Cream). An impressive array of flavors is available for the making, like Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, Vanilla Frozen Yogurt, Fresh Fig Ice Cream and Pear Pecorino Ice Cream. Sorbet, sherbet and granita also are explored in depth, as are ice cream "vessels," such as brownies and crepes. Great photos and plenty of practical advice combine to make this an appealing and useful resource for the dessert aficionado.

Customer Reviews

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.
