B. Marshall This ultimate ice cream collection was first published in Victorian London by ice cream entrepreneur, Agnes B. Marshall. Its divine delights include thirst-quenching ice creams, sorbets, mousses and iced souffles, such as: Burnt Almond Cream Ice Sorbet of Peaches Maraschino Mousse Chateaubriand Bombe Plombiere of Strawberries Muscovite of Oranges These simple recipes are fully updated and can be made as easily using traditional methods and a home freezer, or with modern appliances and an ice-cream maker.
