The Da Vinci of Ice Cream

By Bailey Berg       August, 2016

Elissa Brown's cookbook is a mess.

Not because it's blemished with ingredients, but because it's really more a scientific logbook than step-by-step instructions. Her pages read more like mad scientist scribbles—many of the recipes have annotations, percentages for various trials, equations and notes about controlling the variables in her experiments.
