Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home
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.
Now with her debut cookbook, Jeni B...more

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

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

When I found out that she wrote a cookbook, I had to get my hands on it. I am impressed. The recipes are divided by season, there is space by each recipe for tasting notes, there is a brief how-to of ice cream making (4 pages) before the recipes in case this is your first venture into ice cream making. (For me, it will be.)

I don't have an at home ice cream maker, so I will be making some of these recipes at work and I have used some of these before. Jeni's ice cream is really good and her recipes are straightforward and give you a lot of inspiration for different combos.
This book doesn't go into the science of ice cream making *that* much. She does talk about her journey and gives good backgrounds on different purveyors / sourcing ...more
The backstory! The science! The personal anecdotes! The research-y detail stuff!
I glory over this kind of thing.
I have one recipe chilling right now (milk chocolate) and I’m about to start another (roasted strawberry with buttermilk.) I’m confident it will be the best I’ve ever made. If it tastes even half as good as the scoop shop, it’ll be worth it.
Great book for homemade ice cream. Easy to follow instructions and super delicious results. Various “spin-off” dessert ideas with the ice cream made from the book. Best thing is, there’s no eggs!
We did some of these for my Baking class and they were fantastic. It prompted me to purchase the book for myself so I could make some at home. I love the background and details in dealing g with the ingredients used in the recipes.
This book is more than just ice cream recipes, but if you want recipes, don't worry, they're all in there.
I really enjoyed reading Jeni's stor ...more
