Walker EvansKeymasterQuote:JBB: It will be out in another year. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been a lot of fun to work on. There were a lot of things I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know about the process that IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve had to learn. The book will be a little bit of everythingÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ it is a cookbookÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ it has a lot of profiles of Ohio farmers, the people we work with and know wellÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ also flavor stories for each flavor. There is a lot in the book about Ohio, of course. The recipes that we have created for the book mimics the end product – the flavor, texture, consistency, finishÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ all of the stuff that we do in our big kitchen, so that it is scoopable and lickable on a cone. Most home ice cream isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t like that. We actually built a little test kitchen which only has home equipment so that we could test these home recipes.April 8, 2011 4:47 pm at 4:47 pm #439318

This kind of high quality book will not only be good for Jeni’s, but good for Columbus’ emerging reputation as a “food town.” The other good thing about it will be highlighting Ohio and its agricultural authenticity – definitely a competitive advantage when it comes to sourcing locally. This book will surely turn heads to this part of the country and open doors for others. Congrats, Jeni and company!June 9, 2011 3:29 am at 3:29 am #439321June 9, 2011 4:33 am at 4:33 am #439322
I’m so bummed we’ll be out of town for this.June 9, 2011 12:52 pm at 12:52 pm #439323
I need to know why everything is happening on June 11th? It’s crazymaking.June 9, 2011 12:55 pm at 12:55 pm #439324
Barleys will be there pouring some beer… ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not always just about the Ice Cream, but JeniÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been going through a fair amount of Russian Imperial Stout the last two summers… I think that her Kona Stout Ice cream is something like 1/3 beer; can that be right?June 9, 2011 2:39 pm at 2:39 pm #439325

given the flavor it would not surprise me. The texture of is remarkable too.. it almost feels ‘carbonated’ in the mouth, but that might just be the power of suggestion.
I’m really looking forward to this book. My own home icecream/gelato experiments have been reasonably successful, but it really is difficult to get the texture consistently correct.June 9, 2011 4:14 pm at 4:14 pm #439326
There will also be an iBook available in Apple’s iBook store. You get 10 free videos with the iBook as well, where Jeni walks you through the base ice cream recipe, salty caramel, and lots more. Those videos look just like the video at the top of the thread just more…you know…instructional. ;)June 9, 2011 8:18 pm at 8:18 pm #439327

alton’s good eats episode about ice cream (i believe “churn baby churn II”) was the key to getting my recipes to come out a lot more consistently. check it out, it’s on youtube i believe.
also, this book coming out the week of my b’day is a godsend. i know EXACTLY what i’m getting now . . .June 9, 2011 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #439328

I can’t be at 10 places at once. I’ll be canoeing down Okkervil River.June 22, 2011 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #439329
this book is far more like a love-letter than a cookbook.
a love letter for
her former employers
and the reader.
damn, this just might be the most engaging cookbook ever written . . .June 28, 2011 10:13 pm at 10:13 pm #439330June 30, 2011 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #439331
So the enhanced ebook of Jeni’s book was released today on Apple’s iBook store. As I mentioned before, the $11.99 download also gets you 10 free how-to videos from yer pals at Spacejunk. I think they really do help with making the ice cream recipes at home.
The cool thing is, Jeni’s book is actually featured on the front page of the iBook store today. Pretty awesome for Columbus! I attached a screenshot. Let me know what you think of the videos.
