"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.

      Has anyone come across a digital version of Practical Professional Cookery (revised 3rd edition) H.L. Cracknell & R.J. Kaufmann.
      I am using this as the textbook for my culinary arts students and a digital version would come in very handy for creating notes and handouts.

      I dont believe that any English translation of Carêmes works exist. An incomplete version was published in 1842 (I think) but even the that version seems lackluster for the few recipes it does cover. I think it's time the world looks to its past, but I don't speak great French and it's a huge task to undertake. I hopefully plan on publishing this work and anyone who helps me will get a very fair cut, and if we decide not to publish it, I'll put it out on the internet for free. I'm working in Google docs so we can collaborate. I'm first cataloging the index to cross reference the pre-existing incomplete English version to give us a reference of what yet needs to be done, and from there we will go down the list of recipies and Translate them one by one. Simple google translate goes only so far, as it is 1700s French culinary terms and phrases being used. I'd like to preserve as much of Carêmes beautiful and flowery language as possible. Who's with me?

      I have seen referenced in several places on the internet, including Wikipedia, a stat about escoffier recommending 40 minutes for scrambled eggs in a Bain Marie. I cant find where this number is from. On Wikipedia it refers to the book I currently own, the "Escoffier le guide culinaire" with forward by Heston Blumenthal by h. L. Cracknell...specificly page 157 for the 40 minute cooking time of scrambled eggs but it's not in my book on that page! Even tho there is the recipe for scrambled eggs on that page... I've seen the 1903 first edition online.. And it's not in there either.... Where is this number from?? Id like to know in case there is some even more complete book or something out there that I'm missing. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
