Unique flavors, prepared from top-quality ingredients combined with minimally processed milk from grass-fed cows, transformed Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, a small artisanal scoopery in Columbus, Ohio, into a nationally acclaimed (and beloved) brand.

I've read the recipes and anecdotes and personal stories, and I have to say this is an AWESOME book for a home ice cream enthusiast. I'm eager to try out the recipes for myself, and will update with my findings.

I recently went to Ohio to visit my best friend, and as soon as my flight was booked, she had plans for us to go to Jeni’s, a local ice cream joint featuring unusual flavors on par with Humphry Slocombe and Bi-Rite in San Francisco. For years, she has told me about Jeni’s and her favorite flavors: sweet basil, olive oil, gooey butter cake, lime cardamom (the list goes on).
Long story short: the ice cream more than met my expectations. Mo...more

This is a foodie cookbook. Think gourmet. Cognac ice cream. Sweet basil and honeyed pine nut ice cream. Olive oil ice cream. I have an ice cream maker and enjoy using it but I prefer family-friendly, kid-approved flavors. Boring but true. If I ever w...more
THE most incredible ice cream. A friend gave this to me last summer and I have made soooooo many delicious ice creams from this! Tonight I am making the Goat Cheese with Cognac Figs, unbelievable! We just had a coffee ice cream that I added chocolate covered almonds. And for Christmas I made peppermint with cognac. Cognac works great with lots of favors, however we did not like it with chocolate--should have used Cointreau (what is better than orange and chocolate?).
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for t...more

This is a beautifully designed, easy-to-understand cookbook for making some of the best tasting foods I have ever had the privilege of eating.
It starts with a promise, Jeni's story, a quick (2 p.) illustrated guide to the basics of ice cream making, a short discussion of ingredients and equipment [BTW, you probably have most of the nee...more
But all the recipes are easy to follow and the results taste just like what you buy at the store.
I LOVE this book.
