Book Review – The Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt Cookbook by Mable & Gar Hoffman

(Last Updated On: January 31, 2010)

When I first bought my ice cream maker, this is one of the first books I checked out at my local library. “The Ice Cream And Frozen Yogurt Cookbook” by Mable & Gar Hoffman is a collection of more than 220 recipes that include ice cream, frozen yogurt, sorbets, sherbets, granita, and gelato. The book is divided into sections based on the type of flavor. There are sections on vanilla, chocolate, citrus fruits, tropical fruits, etc. The book is good for getting a lot of recipes. I personally think there are other books on the market that do a better job of teaching the hows and whys of ice cream (in an earlier post I explained how to make custard based ice cream).  For those on a diet, each recipe includes an estimate of how many calories, how much fat, etc is in 1 serving of each dessert.

Well it may not be the go-to how to make ice cream book, it is still a good book to have just for the amount and variety of recipes.
