'One of the greatest culinary pioneers this country has ever seen' - Heston Blumenthal
‘The aim of the properly constructed sweet is to convey to the palate the greatest possible amount of pleasure’ - AA. B. Marshall
This ultimate ice cream collection was first published in Victorian London by ice cream entrepreneur, Agnes B. Marshall.
Its divine delights include thirst-quenching ice creams, sorbets, mousses and iced soufflés, such as:
Burnt Almond Cream Ice
Sorbet of Peaches
Plombière of Strawberries
Muscovite of Oranges
These simple recipes are fully updated and can be made as easily using traditional methods and a home freezer, or with modern appliances and an ice-cream maker.
As Voltaire once said: ‘Ice cream is exquisite. What a pity it isn’t illegal’
