If Willy Wonka made ice cream instead of chocolate, it would look a lot like the concoctions Stef Ferrari dreams up - twisted, curious, fun, and radically unique. It's these ice creams and other deliciously different treats (such as ice cream cakes, melted ice cream french toast, and cocktail inspired ice cream) that made Hay Rosie craft ice cream company an overnight hit when it opened last summer in Brooklyn's carroll gardens. Fans lined up around the block for her inspired flavours like sage chocolate chip, sriracha popcorn, and indie pale ale. Time Out calls her ice cream "delectably head scratching," and adventurous foodies will love trying out the weird and wonderful, but still incredibly compatible, flavours that Ferrari will teach them how to concoct at home. Ice Cream Adventures will be a fun, illustrated giftable book featuring recipes for ice creams, cookies, toppings, and new ideas for ice cream pairings. Ferrari's theory is that almost everything can be turned into ice cream and ice cream can be turned into anything else. Once readers have a taste of this book, they'll never go back to their regular ice cream.
