If you are looking for a book that has a ton of ice cream recipes than "The Ultimate Ice Cream Book" by Bruce Weinstein may be the book for you. If you are looking for a book on how to make ice cream, well this isn't that book. The book does contain a lot of recipes but I don't think the book explains the "how to" very well. But that is ok for someone who already knows how to make ice cream, because really all you are looking for is a combination of ingredients. I had made a lot of recipes from this book and they all turned out tasty, once I knew what I was doing. The first time I tried the chocolate ice cream recipe it did not come out right. Then I learned how to make ice cream and then I tried the recipe again and was successful. Despite the flaws, I still think this is a book that is worthy of checking out. So I think if you already know what you are doing and are looking for a ton of recipes this book will keep you churning out ice cream for a while.
