Announcing: Sunday Slow Scoopers


I love, love, love gelato. So when Jerry suggested that our next book be David Lebovitz's "The Perfect Scoop," I was very excited. You see I also love, love, love David's blog. A guy who writes about ice cream, chocolate and all things Parisian is pretty appealing. Naturally, it's the first blog I read when I open up Google Reader.

PerfectScoopSmall.jpgSo from August 10 to November 16, there will be fifteen of us scooping our way through David's book. Just as we did with the Sunday Slow Bakers, each week a person on our list picks a recipe and we all make it, post about it and compare photos and notes. Oh, and we get to eat it, too. That's the fun part. And lest you think that ice cream week after week will get boring, listen to just some of the flavors that have been picked so far: Roquefort-Honey Ice, Green Apple and Sparkling Cider, Pina Colada and Panforte! Oh, and special thanks to Colleen for coming up with the name Sunday Slow Scoopers.

Now, not everyone on the list has a blog, so some participants will be posting on the members only food forum of Slow Travel, but I have listed those with blogs in my sidebar, so you can definitely follow along with them. And if you are curious about our schedule, I've listed the whole thing in the extended entry. But sometimes there are last minute substitutions. And you never know, we may get a few more to join. There are more recipes in the book waiting to be tried...

But for now you can prepare yourself for next week's debut: Jerry's pick of Butterscotch Pecan Ice Cream. Let the scooping begin!

I made my ice cream today and it was delicious. This is going to be fun. Now if only I had some ideas for all of these egg whites.

Oh! I wish I'd known about this before, I would have asked if I could play!
I saw your comment on David's blog which led me here (though I am a slowtrav member too).

I have to say, I made his salted butter caramel ice cream for the 4th of July and it was the best ice cream EVER. It was so good, I made a second batch so I could have some after my guests left. I have photos of the process and the final product too!

Two nights ago I made his peach sorbet recipe which was in the LA Times a few weeks ago. Fabulous!

Kristina, why don't you join us? It's not too late. It sounds like you would love this. I can't wait to make that salted butter ice cream!


Kristina, not too late, we can add on another week if you're interested. Just visit us in the food forum over www.slowtalk.com
