I recently bought a sorbetier, as well as a number of ice cream/sorbet/gelato recipe books. This is the best--the chocolate ice cream is absolutely to die for...better than any commercial brand I've ever had. The recipes are clear and easy to follow, providing good basic recipes that can be modified at will. Each recipe is preceded by the author's thoughts and comments, well written and relevant. The book is also visually attractive. The first reviewer notes that, unfortunately, it is in English--but one learns quickly to read recipes in another language. Great book!

I'm writing this in English on the French site, as the items I bought were in English, so I reckon that anyone else thinking of buying them will understand English. This is really a comment on the customer service provided by my favourite online shop. Shortly after ordering this book, I discovered that the same title on Amazon.co.uk was a British English version, as opposed to American English. Being British myself, I find it easier to follow British recipes for the measures and certain ingredients. So, I've just contacted Amazon.fr to tell them I wish to return this edition. I was fully expecting to have to pay postage, as the error was all mine. Not only do I not have to pay postage, but they've told me not to bother returning the book. They'll just refund me.
I've only flicked through the book in case Amazon changes its mind, but the recipes sound wonderful.

Indispensable si on possède une sorbetière. Enfin un livre qui propose des vrais recettes de glaces et sorbets très originales totalement faites maison. Seule bémol, il faut maitriser un minimum l'anglais, ou se faire aider par un traducteur pour les mots basics.
