Overview

A fun collection of 60 recipes, riffs, toppings, and serving ideas for ice creams of all styles.

Ice cream is more fun with friends, but also with cones, sprinkles, candied nuts, hot honey—you get where we’re going. So the editors of Food52 brought together sixty well-tested recipes for frozen desserts of all styles and a billion (give or take a few) ideas for toppings and add-ons. There are surprising flavors—think cinnamon roll ice cream, coffee frozen custard, and grilled watermelon cremolada—and spins on enduring favorites, such as spiced fudgesicles, cherry-mint snow cones, and even a chocolate-hazelnut baked Alaska. There are Saltine and waffle sandwiches, boozy floats, and something called “spoom.” There are tricks for making ice cream without a maker and spiffing up the store-bought stuff, and Hail Marys for when things go wrong (like when—whoops!—all the ice cream melts). But don’t be nervous: even if you’ve never made ice cream before, you’re in good hands with this no-fuss, all-fun book. Consider it your permission to play (and eat a ton of really good ice cream).

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 “Ice cream is my life and Food52 really knows their frozen stuff. This book isn’t cutesy and it’s not snore-inducing science-y either. Recipes that actually work, imagine that. I’m a fan.”

— BROOKS HEADLEY, chef/owner of Superiority Burger and author of Fancy Desserts

This survey of frozen desserts from the editors of Food52.com brims with ice creams, sorbets, semifreddos, popsicles, snow cones, and other delights. Impressive in its variety, the book blends all-new and reader-contributed recipes, including: saltine cracker-brownie ice cream sandwich, lemongrass chile ginger ice cream, and cherry sorbet with lemon-thyme soda. These and other combinations are adaptable to many home kitchens, including those without an ice cream maker. Homemade toppings (e.g., sprinkles, magic shell, sugar cones) feature prominently as well. VERDICT No matter your taste or dietary preferences, you'll be tempted by this delectable collection.

Olive Oil–Cacao Nib Gelato

Makes 1 quart (950ml) | From Amanda Hesser 

If you have a bottle of olive oil you’ve been saving for a special occasion, bring it out now. Whisk the olive oil into a creamy gelato base and the floral, peppery flavors head just a smidge toward “sweet.” Food52 contributor Yossy Arefi’s turn on Amanda’s recipe is to add cocoa nibs, crunchy like chocolate chips but fruity and bitter like olive oil. They’re in no way necessary, but certainly a welcome bite in this smooth-as-aioli gelato.

3⁄4 cup (150g) sugar
3⁄4 cup (175ml) whole milk
Pinch of salt
4 egg yolks
6 tablespoons (90ml) good-quality olive oil
2 tablespoons cacao nibs

1. In a saucepan, whisk together the sugar, milk, 6 tablespoons (90ml) water, and salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. While the mixture is heating, in a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks.

2. When the milk mixture has come to a gentle simmer, gradually whisk it into the egg yolks. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture reaches 185°F (85°C) on a candy thermometer. Be careful not to let the mixture boil, which will scramble the eggs and ruin the base.

3. Remove from the heat, transfer to a bowl, and refrigerate to chill completely, at least 4 hours but ideally overnight. When the ice cream base is cold, whisk in the olive oil; the base will be thick and glossy. 

4. Pour the chilled base into an ice cream maker and churn it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. During the last minute of churning, add the cacao nibs. 

Magic Shell

Former Food52 editor Marian Bull taught us how to make our own Magic Shell, that stuff you drizzled copiously over every scoop of ice cream, watched harden, then broke into like a little monster while growing up. For 1 cup (240ml) of the good stuff, chop 6 ounces (170g) good-quality chocolate (dark, preferably) and add it to a microwave-safe container with a scant ½ cup (110g) coconut oil. Melt in 30-second increments, stirring between each, until liquid. Pour over ice cream (or milkshakes). Then, magic! Magic Shell will stay liquid in a hot kitchen and solidify after sitting in a cold kitchen or the fridge. You can remelt it in the microwave.

Food52 : Ice Cream & Friends is 60 recipes for ice cream in a whole different way that you wouldn't think was possible. With a fresh new look at what to put in ice cream like coffee to spices and even a modern Baked Alaska. Having easy to read recipes and even recipes to make your own sprinkles, this book is surly to be hit during the summer time! I love ice cream and reading this book that gives you more ideas to incorporated in your own homemade ice cream, is just perfect! Before reading this book, I never really thought about how easy it would be to make your own sprinkles but now that I know how easy it is to do, I'm gonna be making my own instead of buying store bought sprinkles! I'm really liking every cookbook Food52 puts out and this book is no exception to that! Thank You to Food52 for coming out with cookbooks that will get anyone into the kitchen to make the delicious recipes inside! I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley!
