Book Giveaway (2 Copies!): Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones: 90 Recipes for Making Your Own Ice Cream and Frozen Treats from Bi-Rite Creamery

If you read my blog long enough, you know I love desserts but nothing gets more excited than ice cream. (I do love me some beautiful entremets but that’s a very different and fussy dessert.) Anyway, if you follow my tweets and stumbled one of my updates over a month ago, I’ve mentioned I’m going to San Francisco in June. One of my planned stops will be at Bi-Rite Creamery since I’ve been hearing about their delicious but relatively minimalist ice cream flavors for years.

Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones: 90 Recipes for Making Your Own Ice Cream and Frozen Treats from Bi-Rite Creamery

I’ve finally gotten my hands on their wonderful book, Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones: 90 Recipes for Making Your Own Ice Cream and Frozen Treats from Bi-Rite Creamery by Kris Koogerhyde, Anne Walker, and Dabney Gough, I have sensed their rustic, nostalgia meets modern ice cream flavors. There are sprinklings of baked goods recipes like brownies, cakes and various cookies to make ice cream sandwiches or ice cream cakes. If you are one of those dessert makers who have the motivation to make your own ice cream mix-ins (e.g. dark chocolate cookies for the Cookies and Cream Ice Cream) they have those recipes, too.

There’s also a lot of beautiful ice cream photos done by Paige Green that would make you crave for a pint of ice cream.

Personally, I cannot wait to make the berry flavored ice creams, pistachio, Earl Grey, and green tea ice creams first since summer is creeping in soon. Or I will be the lazy person and wait until I get to San Francisco, buy and gorge on whatever flavors that grabs my attention when I’m at Bi-Rite Creamery.
