PORTLAND, Ore. (July 7, 2015) – This August Salt & Straw introduces a new menu of flavors, a veggie-driven exploration of ice cream’s unexpected possibilities. Working with the Portland community of local farmers and producers, the flavors push forward into a bold new frontier; where farm-to-table zealots squeal in delight and farm-fresh vegetables are delivered in the form of frozen cylindrical magic. Slashing the arbitrary boundaries of veggies and ice cream, this menu is an exploration of the curiosity between sweet, savory, earthy, and refined. Each flavor features fresh, locally grown ingredients, as well as a few from farms working to make fresh produce accessible to all. Flavors will be available at Salt & Straw locations for national shipping and at Aug. 7, 2015 – Sept. 3, 2015.
Salt & Straw Ice Cream is a chef-driven ice cream kitchen with scoop shops in Portland and Los Angeles that partners with local artisans, producers and farmers to serve unusually creative and absolutely delicious ice cream. Each ice cream is handmade in small batches using only all natural cream from local farms in each city. Flavors showcase the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients from Oregon and Southern California farmers and artisans as well as imported flavors from small hand-picked farms from around the world. The company started in Portland, OR serving eight flavors from an ice cream cart in May of 2011 and now has three scoop shops in Portland and one in LA. Scoops of hand-made, small batch ice creams, sundaes, milkshakes and floats as well as pints to go are available at each with an ice cream sommelier of sorts who will gladly take you though a tasting of all the flavors. Favorites, seasonal, design your own variety packs and pint club memberships are available for online purchase and can be shipped anywhere in the United States. Salt & Straw’s ice cream cart is available for catering parties and events. Find more information at www.saltandstraw.com or call 971-271-8168.
