"Los Secretos del Helado" by Angelo Corvitto – free download

Recommended Posts

"Los Secretos del Helado" is in my opinion the best professional book ever written about ice-creams. Originally it was printed only in Spanish language, I searched the forum and in some past threads some users complained about this.

But now it's available for free download in English and Italian language:

This is a mandatory book for all ice-cream makers.

Thank you for sharing that information.

Its what makes eGullet worthwhile.

The book looks to have lots of good stuff, but glancing through a couple of the chapters, there are a few typos and such.

A lot of effort has clearly gone into the 'look' of the thing ...

I look forward to studying it properly!

Awesome! Thanks.

His website also has a lot of the technique information in a nicely distilled format.

Thank you teonzo for alerting us all to this book. I've downloaded the first two sections and will work at it bit by bit until I have it all. Thanks.

I'm just being paranoid because I've been the past victim of getting my computer infected with viruses so can anybody confirm first confirm that the link is safe before I download it.

I've had it downloaded for just over 24 hours now with ostensibly no problems.

I seem to recall having downloaded the entire book a long time ago. Alas! I can't seem to find it. I'll look again.

And no, I can't get it to download now. :sad:

Very slow on the uptake. I see from posts above from August 2011 that I did download it all. And now I can't find it. Hvae been through my files twice.

I am sending by private email the contents of the ice cream book, downloaded legitimately two years ago, to two eGullet members. The book is huge and if there is anyone else who wants it, please tell me now. I don't have very high speed internet and it will be some work to send the chapters. No, I don't mind at all, but I am unlikely to do it twice.

Thanks.

I sent you one as well, if I'm not too late!

Thank you.

If I receive a few more requests, I will mail the book out again. Or perhaps one of the persons to whom I mailed it and who has faster service than I do, will mail it to you.

      I need a book on the application of rotavapor machine. I've searched something on web but i can't find something strictly professional for the kitchen please help me. To improve the research.

      After a delightful brunch at Koslow's Sqirl restaurant in Los Angeles, I've decided to attempt to cook through her cookbook. I'll post my results here.
       
      Please follow along and join in, if you're so inclined. Her food is wonderful, but I will surmise that her true deliciousness comes from using the best and freshest ingredients. I'll do my best to recreate the magic I felt at Sqirl.
       
      Here's the link to her book at Eat Your Books.

      Thanks to @blue_dolphin, I was forced to buy this cookbook  and it was delivered today.  No matter how hard I try, I just don't super enjoy cookbooks on my Kindle.  Anyway, I'll most likely be alone on this thread due to low okra likability lol, but I'm an only child and I'm used to being alone 😁
       
       

       
       First on the list will be the Kimchi Okra from page 100--as suggested by @blue_dolphin.
       
      I'll be back on this thread soon

      Can anyone suggest me some good books related to Gastronomy, food history, culture, recipes based on different cultures. 
      Also recommend the best food magazine subscriptions.
