jeni's splendid ice creams, a lovely cookbook filled with artisanal ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet recipes, crossed my desk a couple weeks ago and i had to bring it home. the funny thing, of course, is that i am a vegan and will never eat many of these recipes myself but i can admire a good cookbook when i see one. plus, there are a handful of vegan sorbets (such as the black plum and black currant lambic sorbet) that are very tempting. the book is authored by jeni of jeni's ice creams based in columbus, oh, and she breaks the book into seasons with the winter season including a clever influenza rx sorbet which promises to "clear nasal passages and soothe the body" with ingredients such as citrus juices, ginger, honey and bourbon. too funny.
when i visited jeni's site i was really impressed with the presentation and was instantly drawn in by the wonderful food film about jeni's shop by george lange. mmmm...see below.
