November Prize: A little light reading to go with your double scoop tonight!

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on November 7th, 2017

picSearch Amazon for ice cream books and you’ll find no shortage of books chock full of recipes for how to put your ice cream maker to good use. But since we’re all set for ice cream recipes, we kept looking, and that’s when we found “Ice Cream: A Global History.”

So we bought a few copies to read and another to give away as this month’s blog prize. Leave a comment on this post and we’ll choose one to win a book that features “a vibrant trip through the history of ice cream from ancient China to modern-day Tokyo.” (BONUS: The book also has a chapter with recipes, in case you really do want to put your ice cream maker to good use.)

Here’s what a few reviewers had to say about the book that delivers a triple-scoop of ice cream history:

This little gem of a book is everything you never dreamed there was to know about ice cream.

“(The) photos, artwork and illustrations make it beautiful to look at, and the writing makes it a fun and fascinating read.”

Long after my banana pecan ice cream cone has melted, I will still be perusing (this) book.”

“It brought back fond memories of summer evenings with all of us kids lined up at the Good Humour truck.”

“This book draws you in from beginning to end. I lapped it up with a spoon.”

Reading it made me very happy — and not a single calorie!

    sounds like great reading, I can never know enough about my favorite subject, ice cream. As long as there is a bowl of peanut butter ripple to go with my reading.

  21. Marge says:

    I like the idea of a NO ADDED sugar in the your ice cream. Many folks really do not like extra sweet food, of which the Turkey Hill Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream is a good example, too sweet for me.

    Most likely though, I am probably in the minority.
