This week, we’re excited to welcome TYLER MALEK to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories on cookbooks.

Tyler is the head ice cream maker (and co-founder) of SALT & STRAW, the ingredient-focused scoop shop from Portland, Oregon. Tyler opened Salt & Straw with his cousin in 2011. Working with local farmers, chefs, chocolatiers, and brewers, Tyler has invented hundreds of ice cream flavors (many of them award-winning combos.) His first cookbook is the Salt & Straw Ice Cream Cookbook.

In today’s show, we’re talking with Tyler about the humble origins of Salt & Straw, about his appreciation for the creative constraints of ice cream making, and playing a flavor creation game.
Also in today’s show:

We’re catching up with food writer and cookbook reviewer PAULA FORBES to discuss this fall’s upcoming cookbooks.
