If it seems like Mexican food is everywhere in the US these days, Mexican sweets have gotten short shrift. Fany Gerson's mission, with two previous cookbooks and a mini-chain of NYC locations called La New Yorkina serving her frozen delights, is to fix that. Her Mexican Ice Cream is a gorgeous, eye-opening tour of traditional and innovative ice creams and sorbets that can be made just as easily as plain old chocolate or vanilla. Pictured here you'll see her vibrant rose petal ice cream, a mixed berry sorbet spiked with lime juice, and a joyous tutti-frutti ice cream that incorporates guava or quince paste as well as your favorite dried fruits. This is a delightful, inspiring collection that you'll want to put to work immediately.
