Almost a year after debuting Volume I of Ruby Encyclopedia, a guide to everything chefs need to know about Ruby chocolate, Chocolate Academy North America has released the highly anticipated Volume II of Ruby Encyclopedia.

Volume II provides base recipes for ice creams, gelatos and drinks; specialty ice creams with Ruby and other chocolates; and hot, chilled and blended drinks plus a chapter dedicated to Ruby cocktails.

Among the recipes featured are:

  • Ruby Stracciatella Gelato
  • Ruby Gold Coffee Gelato
  • Raspberry Ruby Crème Glacée
  • Kir Royale
  • Summer Sangria
  • Spice Wine
