(October 30th, 2017) – 180, Portland’s first Spanish xurreria, launched the Chef Xurro Collaboration series in April 2016, welcoming local chefs each month to create their own xurro creations, inspired by their favorite sweets and memories from childhood. Fresh, authentic xurros were an integral part of chef José Chesa and partner/chef David Martin’s childhood growing up in Spain, they along with co-owner Cristina Báez kicked things off with Lardo chef/owner Rick Gencarelli and his “Xurroli” a xurro, cannoli mash-up. This November, 180 teams up with Sarah Hart of Alma Chocolate for a fun, childhood throwback! Sarah’s Snow Ball Xurro is inspired by the famed cream-filled cakes of her childhood. Sarah grew up part of a large family, and would save her allowance as a child to buy her favorite snacks, including Sno Ball cakes. The Portland chocolatier has created this blast from the past xurro, covered in fluffy marshmallow, dipped in chocolate and then topped with coconut, bringing all these sweet memories back for the month of November Proceeds of Sarah’s Snow Ball Xurro will benefit the Oregon Latino Health Coalition (OLHC), the Latino-led, Latino-accountable health policy advocacy organization in Oregon dedicated to eliminating Latino health disparities.
