Book Review: Big Gay Ice Cream: Saucy Stories & Frozen Treats: Going All the Way with Ice Cream, by Bryan Petroff


 Hello again, savvy savers! Tonight finds us with a new book review, and this time the Big Gay Ice Cream: Saucy Stories & Frozen Treats: Going All the Way with Ice Creamby Bryan Petroff. 

So, why this cookbook? This cookbook is just fabulous! Big Gay Ice Cream’s debut cookbook, a yearbook of ice cream accomplishments—all the recipes you need to create delicious frozen treats!

Here are a few points worth mentioning:

New to making ice cream at home? Never fear—freshman year starts off simple with store-bought toppings and shopping lists for the home ice cream parlor.
• Sophomore year kicks it up a notch with tasty sauces and crunchy toppings.
• Junior year puts your new skills to work with shakes, floats, and sundaes inspired by some of Big Gay Ice Cream’s top-selling treats, including, of course, the Salty Pimp.
• In Senior year, get serious with outrageously delicious sorbets and ice cream recipes.

Along the way, you can enjoy Bryan and Doug’s stranger-than-fiction stories, cheeky humor, vibrant photography and illustrations, and plenty of culinary and celebrity cameos, including an introduction by  one of my television favorites, Anthony Bourdain.

I think I found the most enjoyable cookbook read that I’ve ever had, as its readable, is a conversation piece, and takes the American favorite, ice cream, and turns it into a festive, roller-coaster of a ride treat!

Big Gay Ice Cream is full of great stories and even better recipes. Honestly, I can’t wait to get home from Phoenix so that the boys and I can start experimenting with some seriously delicious summer treats. After all, who doesn’t like ice cream? I find myself picking it up and reading more of it and perhaps trying not to drool as well, ice cream cone excluded!

If you’re an ice cream lover or just a lover of super fun books, I hope this one makes it to your shelf.
