Nothing says summer like an ice cream cone. And what’s better than a scoop of homemade, from-scratch ice cream? Not much that we can think of. Join Tyler Malek, co-founder of the wildly popular Salt & Straw Ice Cream in Portland, Oregon, for a class that will put this confection within arm’s reach—if you’re standing about an arm’s length away from your freezer, that is. We’ll start with the basics: how do you make a versatile ice cream base that works every single time? With high-quality ingredients and a bit of chemistry know-how. You’ll learn why Tyler swears by a bit of xantham gum and a touch of corn syrup to achieve a texture that holds aeration well, resists the formation of ice crystals and won’t come out overly dense. You’ll learn why you should never skip the step of “aging” an ice cream base overnight in the fridge. Tyler will explain how to double, triple or quadruple your ice cream batches. And then, it’s on to the flavorings. Tyler will demonstrate one of his favorite flavors of all time (and he has created over 1,000): Goat Cheese Marionberry Habanero. You’ll get a peek into the creative process of ice cream flavor development and will try your own hand at transforming your ice cream base into something truly special. Tyler will talk through the steps to make other flavors, too, and will tackle logistical details, like how to churn ice cream in a machine and by hand and how to store ice cream without risking freezer burn. Come ready with all your ice cream questions and curiosities—and make sure there’s some spare space in your freezer.

About Tyler: Tyler Malek is the Co-Founder and Head Ice Cream Maker forPortland-based Salt & Straw Ice Cream. Since its founding in 2011, Malek and his cousin Kim Malek, Salt & Straw’s CEO, have built Salt & Straw from a humble ice cream cart into a fast-growing company with 25 locations along the West Coast while retaining its bones as a family-run company known for its culture of hospitality. A pioneer in localization, every ice cream flavor conceptualized by Tyler is handmade in small batches using the best organic and sustainable ingredients from local farmers and artisans.

The Maleks started Salt & Straw Ice Cream serving eight flavors from a push cart in Portland and the brand is now the largest small batch ice cream company in the world with scoop shops in Portland, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, San Diego, Seattle, Miami and in Downtown Disney® District in Anaheim, California.

Since opening, Tyler has created more than 1,000 flavors and spends most of his time working with his R&D department in Portland, which designs future flavors and hunts for new stories to express through ice cream. Due to his tireless pursuit to change the way people experience ice cream, Tyler was selected as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 for “Changing the Way America Eats,” named Zagat 30 Under 30 for 2017, one of the Portland Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 and one of the Eater Young Guns Semi-Finalists.

In April 2019, Tyler revealed the inspiration behind his flavors and the beloved company in the brand’s debut cookbook, “The Salt & Straw Ice Cream Cookbook.” He sits on the Board of Urban Gleaners, a Portland-based nonprofit dedicated to collecting fresh foods to avoid waste and delivering to those in need. Tyler currently lives in SW Portland with his wife, baby daughter, three dogs and a blind cat.
