The ice cream section begins with recipes for Neapolitan style and Philadelphia style ice cream. Neapolitan style ice cream is made with cream, eggs, sometimes milk, and requires cooking, while Philadelphia style ice cream uses pure cream without eggs. Other recipes include ones for frozen custards, plain ice cream, gelatine ice cream, and fruit creams such as pineapple, orange, and strawberry ice cream.
