An instant classic when it was first published, Lebovitz's work remains required reading for ice cream aficionados. This revised edition features an updated design and a dozen new recipes for daring, assertive flavors (e.g., negroni slush, bacon and bourbon ice cream, labneh ice cream with pistachio-sesame brittle). Excellent as the new content is, there's not enough of it to merit replacing a functional copy, especially for those on a budget. For libraries that don't yet own the book, now's the perfect time to snatch it up.
VERDICT Essential additions to ice cream and frozen dessert collections, either edition will do.
