This year, co-founder of Salt & Straw ice cream Tyler Malek released “Salt & Straw Ice Cream Cookbook,” the product of six years in the making. His ice cream company is known for their unique seasonal flavors and this book allows customers to bring these flavors into their homes all year long.

Tyler Malek co-founded Salt & Straw with his cousin Kim Malek in 2011. Even though both founders call 西雅图 home, the company is based in Portland, Oregon. The pair started their business with a vision and passion to make their mark in the industry but lacked recipes.


随着业务的蓬勃发展,他们开发了一种革命性的冰淇淋基地,可以通过威廉姆斯索诺玛销售给顾客。 malek将这个基地描述为非常人性化,并且在制作自己的冰淇淋口味时“不可能”陷入困境。




Following the release of the book, Salt & Straw partnered up with Williams Sonoma to go on a nationwide tour. The promotional tour began on May 1 in New York City and continued westward, finally ending in 西雅图.

On May 29, Malek traveled to Williams Sonoma in University Village to take part in an ice cream making demo and book signing. May 30 marked the end of the tour as Malek stopped 通过 Salt & Straw’s Ballard location for a final book signing.

Malek wrote this book to tell the world how Salt & Straw found inspiration from different cities and then transferred their discoveries into a scoop of ice cream. The demos that took place during the tour were meant to show the audience how easy it can be to make their own ice cream, and Malek further hopes his book inspires others to experiment with recipes and discover new ice cream flavors.



“我认为冰淇淋是最简单的糕点形式之一,但人们会对此感到害怕,”马克说。 “实际上,它非常有趣,而且在一天结束时,我希望人们能够把这本书当作蓝图,以不同的方式思考他们城市中的风味。”

Garry Horvitz and his wife, subscribers to the Williams Sonoma and Salt & Straw mailing list, attended the event together. As active ice cream makers, they knew they had to take advantage of this event.


Blair Hite felt inspired to attend the event as his friend owns a donut business and was excited for Malek’s tour. Hite proudly mentioned that he has gone into every Salt & Straw location in Portland.

“I’m from Portland, and because Salt & Straw is a local business, I wanted to hear what Tyler had to say and learn how ice cream is put together,” Hite said. “I came in not so excited to make ice cream because it’s something I hadn’t done, and now I would love to try.”

Gia Go attended the event with her sister and mom. They have been strong followers of Salt & Straw since the company launched in 2011. They have not tried making ice cream before but try to support the business in any way possible.
