Scoop

Nothing says summer quite like a double scoop of strawberry swirl, which is why veteran food writer Ellen Brown has released Scoop: 125 Specialty Ice Creams from the Nation’s Best Creameries. Here, Brown features more than 20 shops and dairies that scoop up the most flavorful and unique artisanal ice cream in America. She then adapted the recipes, substituting everyday, readily accessible ingredients for those who might want to try creating some of these delicious concoctions at home. She includes Chocolate Espresso Crunch Ice Cream adapted from The Daily Scoop in Barrington, Rhode Island; Grasshopper Pie Ice Cream adapted from Mitchell’s in San Francisco; and even Mango Mimosa Sorbet from Silver Moon in Los Gatos, California. So sit down, cool off, and serve up a good ol’ fashioned scoop of summer. Scoop. Available in stores and online for $20.
