    I learned new things about making ice cream, such as how 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum makes the finished product more scoopable and why it’s important to put parchment paper on top (to prevent ice crystals from forming). Overall, the recipes are COMPLICATED! To make the gooey chocolate brownie ice cream, for example, you make the basic ice cream base, homemade marshmallow fluff to put in the brownies, the brownies, and then the chocolate sauce to blend with the ice cream base before churning. Whew! It I learned new things about making ice cream, such as how 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum makes the finished product more scoopable and why it’s important to put parchment paper on top (to prevent ice crystals from forming).

To make the gooey chocolate brownie ice cream, for example, you make the basic ice cream base, homemade marshmallow fluff to put in the brownies, the brownies, and then the chocolate sauce to blend with the ice cream base before churning. Whew! It reminds me of a Charlie Trotter cookbook: great, inventive but so time-consuming that it’s a real commitment and labor of love to recreate. Unlike the late Mr. Trotter’s creations, one can buy Salt & Straw ice cream on the west coast, so I don’t have spend days churning up these recipes except when I’m attempting to make sugar-free versions. Of course that adds another layer of complication as first I have to mix a batch of sugar-free syrup to sub for corn syrup. All that aside, hubs said the gooey chocolate brownie (that I made with fudge brownies but no marshmallow fluff) was “perfect.” Helpful tip for making sugar free ice cream of Salt & Straw caliber: unless you are going to eat it the day it is churned, use Xylitol (from birch, not corn) in the base instead of erythritol and the ice cream will stay scoopable right from the freezer. If you have pets this might not be a good option since xylitol is toxic to dogs and cats.

    My favorite kind of cookbook is one that has lots of strange but inspiring recipes--and this book has tons of them. So far, I've done Avacado Sorbet, Chocolate Gooey Brownie, Olive Oil, and Salted Caramel. Anything that inspires you to try something new should be a five-star automatically.

    I was happy to see recipes for real flavors you'd find in their ice cream shop. (I may have been suspicious that they might not actually reveal those.) They even included recipes for mix-ins that need to be made and details for those you need to purchase. I've made lots of ice cream and will stick with my own base, but I found several great tips for the process. There is an interesting section on beer flavors and some holiday themed recipes, since ice cream isn't just for summer.

    I've only tried one recipe so far, but it is a great template for creating your own flavors. It also has lots of recipes for specific S&S ice creams like the lavender honey.

    This is easily one of the best ice cream books I've ever read. I love Salt & Straw ice cream, and made a point of stopping by every time I drove into San Francisco. Having tried most of the Thanksgiving and Christmas flavors in the shop, I was excited to see most of those recipes here (especially the turkey caramel, it's delicious!) The methods, breakdowns and recipes are all very clearly written and so easy to understand. They way Malek writes is reassuring and encouraging, so you really do fee This is easily one of the best ice cream books I've ever read.

The methods, breakdowns and recipes are all very clearly written and so easy to understand. They way Malek writes is reassuring and encouraging, so you really do feel like you can easily conquer what sounds like a complicated recipe, and I haven't run across many cookbooks like that. The ice cream base recipe is excellent- really the best one. And don't forget to read the intro and instructions chapters carefully, he offers really great tips on keeping your fresh made ice cream frozen properly so it's always perfect.

    The results are incredible! Complicated recipes, but homemade goods that amount to the stuff you buy in the Salt and Straw ice cream stores. I've made Sea Salt Caramel, Strawberry-Cilantro Sorbet, Cinnamon Snickerdoodle, Freckled Woodblock Chocolate, and none have failed to be anything less than spectacular. What's more, the recipes yield two pints, which is not only more than the store offers pre-packed, but enough ice cream to share or eat yourself and have some for later.

The history of the the shop itself is fun and full of the Portland vibe, as well as the short descriptions for each category of flavor and individual recipe. Most recipes do require some specialized ingredients, but if you're able the end result is well worth the work.

    All the recipes!! Surprisingly insightful. And as an Oregonian, I’m impressed with the featured local brands.

    Incredible recipe book with some amazing (and honestly some kinda weird, but in a good way) recipes! Honestly even worth having for the ice cream and sorbet base recipes alone, if you aren’t into the “weird” stuff. We have made several different incredible ice creams using the base and my own ingredients as well. Consistency and flavors are fantastic!

    Picked this up from the library and hadn't heard of the ice cream shop before then. The majority of the recipes are quirky flavor combos, some of which seem more for shock value than taste. The Pear & Blue Cheese turned out bland, but the Strawberry Honey Balsamic with Black Pepper was delicious! Hesitant to buy because I'm not really interested in beer or vegetable flavors in ice cream, but it's a fun one for those who like experimenting and a weird factor.

    This book has my go-to ice cream base and opened my eyes to the wonders of Xanthan Gum. I usually don't bother heating it up to simplify and save time, and it still turns out great. (If you heat it up it will be even better.) Some of the recipes I've tried are fantastic. Others look very strange, but I appreciate the inspiration.

    The story of how this business was created was interesting. I would like to visit one of their stores to sample the ice cream. The book contained a lot of helpful ideas about the ice cream making process. I feel like I learned quite a lot. The recipes were unusual and did not sound tempting. Not sure if I will make any of them.

    This is a great book for inventive ice cream recipes that run the gamut from being super simple to more complex projects. There are also lots of helpful hints about ingredients, the science behind ice cream, equipment, and techniques. Overall really pleased with how the ice cream is turning out and looking forward to exploring more recipes!

    This was a library lend that became a fast purchase! The ice cream base is solid. Each recipe is easy to break down into simple steps with DELICIOUS results. And it’s quite possible that a $20 book will now lead to a $200 upgraded ice cream machine purchase... 😉

    oh man! This book solves so many of my issues! The tips and tricks are everything I was searching for and this book has given me so many ideas for combinations and flavors! My purchase of an ice cream maker and this book may just be my downfall; a truly delicious downfall. I have no regrets...yet.

    This book is very nicely written and thorough, but personally, I wouldn’t eat many of the flavors included in the book. Savory ice creams, bugs, blood, beer, turkey and gravy are just not appealing to me.

    Some useable basics & inspiration for making "outside the box" ice cream flavors, but heavy on the hipster pretentiousness, which isn't really surprising.

    This cookbook is the history and efforts of a ice cream store owner in Oregon who has expanded into California. His recipes are eclectic and mind boggling, but definitely make you want to try them. Did you know you can ale flavored ice cream?

    the beginning chapters were interesting and informative (and entertaining). incredible that he never made ice cream before but his cousin teamed with him. He researched, experimented and attracted advice from some amazingly knowledgeable people (AND listened). tho few of the actual recipes were my scoop of ice cream the basis (and base recipe) were enlightening.
