Weekend Reads

We survived the recent heatwave, which seemed like a good time to update my post on Vanilla Ice Cream, with new pictures. Probably the worst thing you can do in a heatwave is photograph ice cream, but I did it. As a former restaurant line cook, I can cook or bake through anything. Having a batch of freshly churned ice cream when it’s that hot, is never a bad idea, but plum sorbet, elderflower sorbet, and strawberry frozen yogurt, are also good ways to cool down, using seasonal fruits, berries, and flowers.

    David, could you please tell me which edition of your revised and updated Perfect Scoop has all measurements in grammes? I’m trying to buy online and see more than one publisher. I love your recipes and I’m looking forward to this new version too. Reply

      Hi Sam, All editions of The Perfect Scoop are in grams (and ml’s). The publisher in the U.S. is Ten Speed Press and the Uk publisher is Quarto. Only the Ten Speed/Penguin Random House edition has been updated, and the updated version’s ISBN number is 9780399580314 and it’s listed on their website. Reply

    How much do I love that Cherry Red Wine Compote? I just drove 1500 miles with four pint jars of it, frozen and in an ice-filled cooler, so I could share it with friends on our shared vacation. We grew the cherries ourselves (Montmorency and Meteor) and the four pint jars are just a small portion of the whole batch. I’ll serve it with your vanilla ice cream. It will be heaven. Reply
