The perfect treat for a hot summer day, homemade gelato and its fruit-based cousins, sorbetti and granite, are easy to make and richer than ordinary ice creams and sherbets, yet less fattening. Pamela Sheldon Johns provides 50 recipes for gelato and other icy desserts, along with tasty accompaniments. Including sumptuous ice cream photos and a visual tour of Italy's famed gelaterie, GELATO! reveals the secrets of great gelato making for anyone longing for the sweet tastes of Italy.

 A beautifully photographed primer on making authentic Italian gelato using a home ice cream maker. Hardcover edition sold more than 30,000 copies.

  ReviewsListed as one of the 10 best cookbooks for summer with two recipes and images on website.—NPR.org 6/1/08
