After many months of writing, testing, tasting, tweaking and repeating, the book is DONE.
And even with all that happening, I have to say, it didn't always quite feel real. I'll tell you what finally made it sink in that Ice Cream Adventures is coming to a book seller near you––a COVER.
I've had a chance to get a sneak peak at it over the past few weeks, but today it's official business, folks. And I could not be more excited to share the OFFICIAL cover for Ice Cream Adventures!
This shot was a particularly fun one to capture, since I was busy eating my way though the rest of the quart while the very talented team of stylists, designers and photographers was hard at work making it look so damn pretty.
The flavor is Roasted Cherry Chocolate Chunk. And I am so obsessed with it. Inspired by a spontaneous trip to the market one summer that found me attempting to fumble my way down Court Street in Brooklyn carting my weight in fresh New York cherries, it's made with a rich and decadent sweet cream base studded with specially formulated, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chunks. It's all serving a greatest purpose––to spotlight the simplest, most purely delicious, slow-roasted tart cherries touched by nothing more than a bit of brown sugar and the heat of a low and slow oven. It's not complicated flavor chemistry. It's not ice cream rocket science. It's just so damn delicious.
This recipe and more than 100 of its friends are featured within the pages of this REAL BOOK. And guess what? You can hold it in your hands very soon! I hope you're as excited as I am. Well, maybe just slightly less, since you probably haven't been thinking about it nonstop for a year. Or, well, maybe you have. Either way -- you can pre-order your copy today, and have yourself some Roasted Cherry Chocolate Chunk in no time.
