Spice Dreams: Flavored Ice Creams and Other Frozen Treats

by Sara Engram and Katie Luber

Reviews
Friendly and playful (they refer to their ice cream as 'spice cream') Engram and Luber not only add to the trend of combining herbs and spices with sweets, they take it to another level. They also encourage the reader to experiment and come up with their own combinations; to use the recipes in the book as templates. I am fairly new to making ice cream at home and I wish I hadn't waited so long. The experience of making and eating homemade ice cream is far superior to buying it commercially. Go get an ice cream maker if you don't have one. Buy this book and let the magic unfold. You won't be sorry.
Charles G. Thompson (Amazon.com)


Can you imagine adding spice to ice cream? This book has opened up a whole new freezer of ice cream possibilities. Cardamon mint ice cream, basil ice cream, chile -lemongrass. I feel like a line from a cheezy movie-this book had me with the title "spice Dreams"

Let's give credit where credit is due. The authors of this book, Sara Engram and Katie Luber founders of The Seasoned Palate are culinary goddesses. Who would have ever thought of combining ice cream with spice? If you have never made home made ice cream you have no idea of what you are missing. Ice cream churned at home is filled with a special magic and flavoring you never knew possible. Choose your flavor according to the season. Summertime is the perfect time for fruit ice cream. Around Thanksgiving think pumpkin and for the Christmas season, egg-nog ice cream is a favorite of mine.

Authors Katie and Sara have divided the book into ice creams, sorbets and frozen yogurts, sandwiches, sundaes and such, syrups, sauces, toppings and other goodies and metric conversions and equivalents. To match my mood, the book is printed in delicate pastels. Of course you will want to make every flavor possible I know I do.
