The rare Cook's Illustrated tiny hardback How to Make Ice Cream, currently and mysteriously out of print and going for $75 and up. Pretty steep for a book less than 100 pages.

I scored a copy Saturday afternoon for a $5.00 donation to the San Francisco Public Library. The happy dance was as contained as possible in the Tenderloin district. Hazelnut gelato, maple custard...

Now that I have a copy this would be the time for a reissue. Most if not all of the information should be available on the website. The annual membership is dead cheap and really worth it should you need to take their fantastic stroganoff recipe on the road.

In the meantime, if you are looking for a recipe and need a scan and email of an entry, I'd be glad to. I'll even include a couple vanilla beans. (I have a cache of 3/4 a pound in the freezer. Juicy, sexy things.)
