Praise For Thoroughly Modern Milkshakes: 100 Thick and Creamy Shakes You Can Make At Home

You just want to keep the blender running all the time.

Ried goes further than anyone before him with his milkshake recipes: He writes about technique.

You’ll get the basics, but then the basics go ballistic: add tangerine sorbet to a chocolate shake; cardamom to a mocha shake; dark rum and cashew butter to a vanilla shake. . . . Serve shakes for dessert. They’re fast, festive and so much fun.
