Boasting cultish followings in LA, San Francisco, and their hometown of Portland, Oregon, Salt & Straw is the brainchild of two cousins, Tyler and Kim Malek, who stumbled into ice cream making. But that stumbling is what makes for their innovation: they quickly turned to friends from all over Portland's culinary scene for advice, making for an ethos of constant collaboration and creativity to create hundreds of flavours from one, simple ice cream base that a home cook can make in minutes. In The Salt & Straw Ice Cream Cookbook, they share 80 of their favourite recipes, from flavours like Chocolate PB and J, or Apples and Doughnuts, to wilder creations like Honey-Bourbon Corn Pudding and Salted Turkey Caramel (it's for Thanksgiving). But beyond the recipes themselves, they teach readers the lessons they've learned from all those chocolate makers, salt experts, and chefs, and their many creative tools to inspire the home cook's ice cream imagination.
