Sorbets and Granitas
Ten Speed Press, 1997, 0-89815-902-4
This book is a recipe book, with the recipes provided by
the chefs of the Duane Park Cafe in Manhattan. The book
begins with an introduction that, alas, repeats the standard
ice cream history myths.
The rest of the book is recipes, divided into four sections:
Sorbets, Ganitas, Sauces, and Cookies. The book ends with
short sections on Garnishes, Equipment, and Ingredient
A short but reasonable book for those who are interested in
sorbets and granitas. I plan to try some of the sorbet
recipes, and I've never made (as of Feb 17, 1998) a Granita,
but may try one of those some day.
