Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Johns has made a specialty of single-subject cookbooks on Italy: her other titles include Balsamico! and Parmigiano! She starts with the history of Italian ice cream and its cousins, then moves on to frozen desserts ranging from Chocolate-Hazelnut Gelato to Caramel Semifreddo. But there are fewer than 50 recipes in all, and some are for cookies and other accompaniments, so the stars of her book don't really get to shine: only three granite recipes, a dozen for sorbet, and 17 for gelato. Not a necessary purchase. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
