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 whip it up in the time it takes to decide on a scoop in their shop), you’ll learn to make dozens of Salt & Straw’s flavors—their most beloved (Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons), innovative (Roasted Strawberry and Toasted White Chocolate), and even controversial (Buttered Mashed Potatoes and Gravy!).
But more importantly, this book reveals what they’ve learned and how to tap your creativity and 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.
We’re hitting the road and will be doing talks, demos, and book signings all spring. Check out the full schedule for your chance to meet Tyler & Kim in person.
