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

"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!

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.

      Does anyone have any thoughts about Alice Waters' new "40 Years of Chez Panisse"? Not a recipe cookbook - more of a memoir/history/picture book.

      Other than the three written by Michael Ruhlman, which I have read and loved, what other books are out there that are about cooking, but not cookbooks?

      I just received a copy of "The Cook's Book - Concise Edition" edited by Jill Norman, and now I'm curious, what's the difference to the full edition? Supposedly it has 648 pages compared to 496 in this edition, and it appears to be much larger in size if the info on us.dk.com is correct. Other than that I can't find any info what the difference might be. It's a neat book with lots of photos about techniques etc, and lots of recipes. As with any DK book production values are high.
      If the contents are the same, I'm happy with the smaller version, but I'd really like to know what I might be missing on those 150 or so pages. If it's just filler, I don't care. If it's some fantastic recipes, I do care....
      Anybody here know both editions? Google was so far of no help. Lots of the full edition are to be had used as well, I'd be happy giving this one as a gift and ordering the full edition, if it's worth it.
      Thanks!

      Say you were rounded up with a group of folks and either had a skill to offer in exchange for a comfy room and some other niceties or were sent off to a slag heap to toil away in the hot sun every day for 16 hours, what 3 books would you want to take with you to enable you to cook and bake such fabulous foodstuffs that your kidnappers would keep you over some poor schlub who could cook only beans and rice and the occasional dry biscuit?
