Remember the mundane days of ice cream? Chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. Scoop and repeat. Homemade ice cream will never again be boring with the help of the Salt and Straw Ice Cream Cookbook. All the Salt & Straw ice cream favorites you can possibly try, from the more sedate Stumptown Coffee and Burnside Bourbon to the spectacular Caramel Corn on the Cob and the savory Pear and Blue Cheese. It boggles the mind how these flavors can translate into ice cream, but ask any Portlander — they absolutely do! The recipes are easy to use, with ingredients that are easy to find. Ice cream doesn’t get better than this. Recommended By Corie K-B., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
Salt & Straw is the ice cream brainchild of two cousins, Tyler and Kim Malek, who had a vision but no recipes. But that's what made them great.
They turned to their friends for advice: chefs, chocolatiers, brewers, and food experts of all kinds, and what came out is a super-simple base that takes five minutes to make, and an ice cream company that sees new flavors and inspiration everywhere they look.
Using that base (really, you can make it in about the time it takes you to decide on a scoop in their shop), here are dozens of Salt & Straw's most beloved, innovative, (and a couple of their most controversial) flavors, like Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, Roasted Strawberry and Toasted White Chocolate, and Buttered Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.
But more importantly, this book reveals what they've learned, how to tap your own creativity and how to invent flavors of your own, based on whatever you see around you. Because ice cream isn't just a thing you eat, it's a way to live.
