Most people who make homemade ice creams and sorbets invest in an ice cream machine. The machines usually come with a few simple recipes, but what about the user who wants to be more adventurous or exotic? This book attempts to fill this gap, containing more than 40 recipes all for use with a machine. They cover mouthwatering ones for children such as toffee and yogurt, and peppermint rock and chocolate, and adult recipes such as coffee, sultana, brandy and black currant with creme de cassis. There is in this collection a variety to tempt every palate and suitable for every occasion including savoury ideas such as tomato and vodka sorbet, and spiced apple, chocolate and burnt almonds. Tessa Hayward is a member of the Guild of Food Writers, and has written a number of cookery books, including "Magimix Cookery", "Steam Cuisine" and "The Salmon Cookbook".
