Making Artisan Gelato
45 Recipes and Techniques for Crafting Flavor-infused Gelato and Sorbet at HomeBook - 2009
The word gelato , in Italian, simply means "ice cream," but its meaning has shifted to define a type of high-end frozen dessert, made with milk, not cream. Gelato also has 35% less air whipped into it than ice cream, heightening its rich mouthfeel without tipping the scales. Gelato, in all its luxury, is simple to make at home with a standard ice-cream maker.
Making Artisan Gelato , following on the heels of Making Artisan Chocolates , will offer 45+ recipes and flavor variations for exquisite frozen desserts, made from all-natural ingredients available at any grocery store or farmer's market.
