The Monday before Christmas (2013) I got a call from my client at Zoku LLC. They had a new product, individual ice cream makers, and wanted to know if I’d like to write an ice cream book to accompany this new venture. Having worked with them before, I knew they operate on a tight deadline and this one was particularly challenging. Write a book in six weeks!
Endless Summer: 54 Quick and Creative Ice Cream and Dessert Recipes is sold separately from the Zoku Ice Cream Maker and is also written for traditional ice cream machines. The book is available at Williams Sonoma, Amazon.com and Zoku. There are recipes for ice cream, gelato, sorbet, granita and some dairy-free frozen desserts and recipes for sauces, apple pie, profiteroles, ice cream cones and more. I am particularly pleased with, well all of them, but a couple of favorites are the Pumpkin Pie, White Chocolate & Fudge Swirl and Coconut Milk, Lemongrass, Ginger & Jalapeño (one of the dairy-free desserts).
