To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like this book and it's a go to for ideas but there have been many times where I have had to adapt the recipes because the amounts or some of the ingredients just don't work well with the other. Also some of the instructions are a bit off and don't always give the best results so I have been writing up about them on my blog in the hope that when people search they find it to help them when working from this book. I found that where it says to gently fold in the cream, it just doesn't work, you end up with lumps of cream in your set ice cream. I'll also be honest that some of the recipes or more the flavours are far too 'out there' even for me and my brood but maybe others will be a bit more adventurous. I haven't tested all of the recipes, as I said some of them I just never will but it certainly gives you the foundations of some great ice cream without the churning and of course there are sorbets and other things. I especially like the basic caramel. The book is sorted into categories which I found a bit confusing but then I just used the search function to find the ones I was looking for. As the title says, overall a great book of recipes that do indeed avoid the churning.
