My new book: Polos y helados

Portada polos y helados- Sandra Mangas

“Polos y helados”, by Sandra Mangas

A few days ago, my son Jorge told me: “Mom, you are very pretty! Like a scoop of ice-cream … ”

If this book had not been in the press yet, I would have asked for this sentence to be included in it. In another family this compliment might sound weird . But since last year my children have tested over 200 ice-cream recipes for the new book . So here you have my brand new book “Polos y helados” which is definitely the best book I’ve done so far.

Those of you who have tried already know how difficult it is to photograph ice-cream. First, how complicated it can be to get a good scoop of ice-cream . And then, to get a good picture of it before it is completely melted… To have a dog that, once you turn around, eats the ice pops you are photographing at the moment doesn’t help either.

To shoot ice-cream professionals often use “tricks”. The main and most widespread : to use fake ice-cream. You can do it with a mix of potato flakes and corn syrup, or with confectioners’ sugar and frosting . Even with cornstarch and hair conditioner. No such substitutes have been used in this book: what you get, is what you see.

“Polos y helados” has 136 pages, and includes 50 recipes ranging from classic flavors : strawberry, chocolate, vanilla … to surprising combinations such as carrot cake ice cream. The price is 13.9 €, and you can find it (Spanish version) in Amazon France, Amazon Italy, and Amazon Germany. I will let you know as soon as it is available in UK and US :)

These are some of the recipes you can find in the book:

♥ I hope you like it ♥

    Wow! How do you make the ‘Tornados ice cream’? Do you have a special mould?
