Summary

This mouth-watering book is brimming with delicious ice cream concoctions and iced wonders from the world of Ben Vear, expert on frozen delights. Over 100 recipes scale an impressive colourful rainbow of ice cream flavours and iced treats, including a fantasia of sorbets, gelatos, kulfis, lollies, frozen yoghurts, parfait and desserts. From chocolate and caramel, to citrus and berries, from botanical infusions, herbs and spices to alcoholic temptations; Ben has a recipe for every iced desire, including the best ways to transform the humble vanilla scoop into a show-stopper. Old favourites such as strawberries and cream and mint choc chip are revisited with simple twists, and different quirky flavours like earl grey, orange marmalade, birthday cake, candied bacon, and Guinness ice cream are alluringly refreshing. Easy step-by-step instructions show how to make the perfect ice cream base from which you can create your own experimental flavours. This exciting ice cream collection is completed with Ben's recipes for cones, nests and baskets. Lush, inventive photography by Mike Cooper captures not only the artistry and fun at the heart of Ben's kitchen, but also the magic and wonder of ice cream in the most visually arresting book ever published on the subject. The essential science, ingredients and equipment behind ice cream are explored, as well as a personal history of the ice cream dynasty that Ben hails from. 
  
Winstones is one of the UK's longest running and most respected family ice cream producers, founded by Ben's great grandfather Albert Winstone in 1925 in the heart of the Cotswolds. All of the ice cream recipes in this book remain true to Albert's original base recipe, with flavours brought up to date by Ben.

    “Fantastic, unique recipes . . . Whether you want to accent your favorite meal with a potato dish or make an exciting main dish.” —Broadway World   Latkes. Gnocchi. Aligot. Knishes. Samosas. Munini-imo. Poutine. Potatoes—consumed globally at a rate of about sixty-eight pounds per capita each year—are the stars of some of the world’s most beloved dishes. Perhaps this is why most of us tend to underestimate the humble tuber—it’s so familiar that we forget its full potato potential.   Enter The Potatopia Cookbook, a collection of more than seventy-five creative potato recipes from Allen Dikker, the CEO and founder of Potatopia, the fast-casual all-potato restaurant that has been featured by the New York Times, the Village Voice, and Eater.com, among others.   While the cookbook includes some traditional potato dishes like gnocchi and shepherd’s pie, most recipes are innovative creations that reimagine the world’s most popular vegetable. Ever thought to make lasagna with paper-thin potato slices instead of noodles? Or prepare truffles with mashed potatoes? Find it all in The Potatopia Cookbook alongside detailed descriptions of potato varieties, potato history, and potato preparation and storage tips.   As an added bonus to their popularity, potatoes are naturally gluten-free and—when prepared simply—very nutritious. Along with being fat-, sodium-, and cholesterol-free, potatoes are packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. As he did with Potatopia’s menu, Dikker highlights these benefits in the cookbook by focusing on recipes that skip the fat in favor of keeping it healthy. The result is a hearty, wholesome celebration of all things potato.   “A culinary journey guided by the simple, often underappreciated tuber.” —Foreword Reviews

    In the tenth River Cottage Handbook, Nikki Duffy shows how to grow and cook with herbs. 
     
    Herbs are the most liberating and confidence-boosting of ingredients: grow some and you feel like a proper gardener, bring some into the kitchen and you feel like a proper cook. They allow you to experiment and bring individuality to your cooking while, at the same time, anchoring you in sound culinary tradition because herbs are often responsible for those key flavours that 'make' a dish. Not only that but they are a step on the road to a more self-sufficient, homegrown, organic way of eating. 
     
    In the first part of the book, Nikki explains how to get the most from herbs. She outlines the basic choosing, picking and using guidelines. The second part is a catalogue of herbs, each with grow-your-own notes, flavour descriptions and mini-recipes. Among the forty herbs that Nikki describes are basil, bay, bergamot, chives, coriander, dill, fennel, horseradish, hyssop, marigold, marjoram, mint, parsley, perilla, rocket, rosemary, sage, scented geranium, tarragon, thyme, wild garlic and winter savory. 
     
    Following this are over fifty wonderful and adaptable recipes for everything from herb-scented cakes and biscuits to soups, stuffings and tarts, where more than one herb is, or can be, used. With an introduction by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and full-colour photographs, Herbs is a must-have book for every kitchen.

    “The go-to private chef for cannabinated celebrities and weed lovers . . . is using marijuana to take gourmet dining to a higher level.” —LA WeeklyA Forbes “The Best Cannabis Cookbooks” Selection In her cookbook, chef and author Andrea Drummer guides home cooks through an adventure of the palette. Chef Drummer is a firm believer that the food always comes first. Cannabis Cuisine is about the art of marijuana as an ingredient. It’s more than a cannabis cookbook. Like a fine wine, cannabis is meant to be paired according to its unique profile. With every dish, she looks to the textures, flavors and scents of the bud before masterfully pairing it with ingredients that transcend the dish. The culinary arts and science of responsible dosage are presented in a way that treats cannabis as one of the best ingredients in the world to cook with. Every item she prepares incorporates the flavor profile of the strain that she is using with what is being prepared, thus the cannabis is just as important as any other ingredient. Never before have recipes been presented like this. From the comforts of southern kitchens to the upscale stoves of Michelin star restaurants, each recipe is carefully crafted to elevate both the dish and the cook. In this book, you’ll learn:The basics of pairing budsHow to create unique butters and oils to incorporate in every mealTips for elevating breakfast, lunch and dinnerThe secret of marijuana as a flavor powerhouseHow to properly dose cannabis infused cuisine “Not only is her food out-of-this-world amazing, but her attention to detail is truly unique.” —PopSugar
