Cookbook review: The Perfect Scoop

The Perfect Scoop ($12.91 at Amazon) is all about how to make ice cream. And by ice cream I also mean sorbets and granitas. Granted, to make actual ice cream, you will need an ice cream maker (which is totally worth the money--I have yet to buy any ice cream from the store since getting mine). But you don't need one to make sorbets or granitas, and now that summer's here, what better way to kick it off than with, say, watermelon sorbet? Or fresh strawberry ice cream? Or chocolate ice cream made with Guinness? Or a Dark n' Stormy ice cream made with dark rum and candied ginger? OK, that last one is actually my own invention and is not a recipe in this book. But it should be.
