Frozen desserts play an integral role on the dessert menu of any highly regarded restaurant, and have been steadily rising in popularity over the last decade. It is therefore essential for any serious pastry chef to have a thorough knowledge and understanding of frozen dessert production.

Now comes the definitive and comprehensive Frozen Desserts by Francisco J. Migoya and The Culinary Institute of America—the second in a series of advanced pastry titles, and an extension of the CIA's flagship baking book Baking and Pastry. With all other titles on this subject geared toward home cooks or commercial production, Frozen Desserts fills a void in the professional market, focusing on high-quality, small batch production.

As the former Executive Pastry Chef at Thomas Keller's French Laundry and Lecturing Instructor of Baking Techniques at The CIA, Migoya is an expert in the field, and lends an authoritative voice to this important book. This exhaustive resource provides all the basic information pastry professionals need. Introductory chapters include the history and evolution of frozen desserts; essential ingredients including dairy products, sugars, stabilizers, emulsifiers, fruits, and flavors; and equipment including churning machines, production equipment, and storage and serving containers. Also included are essentials on storage, sanitation, and production and serving techniques. Along the way, Migoya emphasizes real-world production issues such as how long to keep desserts frozen without compromising quality.

Professionals seeking inspiration need look no further than the 200-plus recipes included in Frozen Desserts. Technique and flavor combine with stunning results in Granny Smith Apple and Fennel Sorbet with Fennel Jam, Kataifi Bundles, and Sugared Fennel Fronds, Espresso Semi-Freddo with Lemon Curd Chilboust and Mini Biscotti, or simple but delightful Mimosa Popsicles. Recipe chapters cover the entire spectrum of frozen desserts, from ice cream and gelato, to granités and parfaits, to frozen mousses and soufflés. Migoya covers both classic and modern small-batch production techniques, basic formulas, and both basic and advanced base recipes.

Migoya also shares guidelines that have worked for him over the years, such as:

  • Flavor first, visual appeal close behind
  • Be aware of the environment and commit to using seasonal ingredients when possible
  • Always use the highest quality ingredients available
  • Simple, clean and polished desserts are hard to achieve, but are often the best

Last but not least, a chapter on Finished Items shows readers how to produce, plate, garnish, and serve small desserts, plated desserts, frozen cakes, and even frozen accompaniments to savory courses. Illustrated throughout with 125 striking full-color photographs, as well as a useful tables, charts, and sidebars, Frozen Desserts is sure to become the essential guide professional and aspiring pastry chefs alike will turn to again and again. An instructor's manual and companion website are also available for classroom use.
