Building Community, One Scoop at a Time

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

When we lived with my grandfather, I could always count on the prompt arrival of the ice cream truck every evening, five days a week. I would strain my ears to pick up the whirr of the diesel engine, followed closely by the sound of his bell, ringing loud and clear. It was a welcome distraction from math equations and a chance to catch up with our neighbors. Brought together over our common love for ice cream, the ritual of the ice cream truck offered the opportunity to exchange pleasantries and connect faces with the houses just down the street.

It’s this vision of community that inspired Kim Malek to open Salt and Straw, Portland’s first cow-to-cone scoop shop in the city’s Alberta Arts district. The name is a nod to 18th century origins of ice cream-making, when cream was churned in a tin pail packed with salt (to keep it cool) and straw (to insulate the pail from external temperatures).

Danielle Tsi

The sign everyone wants to see on a hot summer day, and a couple enjoying an ice cream moment on a lazy Sunday.

“I’ve had this idea for a local, community-focused ice-cream shop since 1996,” shared Kim, who’s worked at Starbucks, Yahoo! and (RED) before starting Salt and Straw out of an ice cream cart this May.

“When you think of ice cream, fun and celebration come to mind. We want to use that as a springboard to build a community — not just around a shared love for ice cream, but also an appreciation of the ingredients we use and the people who produce it.”

Kim’s cousin Tyler Malek is the head ice cream maker and the creative mind behind flavors like Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons and Pear and Blue Cheese. “I start with an idea, with what’s in season and tinker with it,” he said, when I asked about his process of recipe development. “There’s a lot of testing going on, all the time. Some flavors work perfectly, like our Lemon Basil Sorbet, but others, like Lavender and Rosemary, don’t do so well.”

Danielle Tsi

Salt and Straw owner Kim Malek scoops a cone for a customer while Tyler lines a bucket with hand-burnt caramel.

Each Salt and Straw ice cream begins its journey at Lochmead Farms near Eugene, OR, where the dairy man reportedly sings opera to his cows to relax them. Once it reaches the Salt and Straw kitchen, it’s then mixed with strawberries and jam from Oregon Hill Farms, chocolate and cocoa nibs from Holy Kakow chocolate, or infused with Steve Smith Teamaker’s Big Hibiscus tea.

“At Salt and Straw we like to sit down with our suppliers and brainstorm flavor ideas featuring their ingredients. For this year’s Portland Beer Week, for instance, Tyler worked with local breweries to develop a new flavor featuring their brews for each day of the festival,” said Kim.

Danielle Tsi

Salvaged cube shelving from a county library has been repurposed into a display case.

“We also work closely with Stumptown Coffee for our coffee ice cream where we feature a single origin coffee that changes throughout the year, depending on the coffee harvest in different parts of the world. Many of our customers don’t realize that coffee is a seasonal product, so we use the opportunity to tell them about coffee production and the farm that produces the beans we use.”

Four months after the first scoop out of their ice cream cart, the month-old store is rushing to cope with the long lines out the door, especially on weekends. But even in the sweltering afternoon sun, there’s no nastiness or impatience. Instead, there’s small talk about flavor choices, restaurant recommendations and goings-on in the city. Like most small businesses in Portland, Salt and Straw is a microcosm of the city’s attitude toward local businesses, grounded in the belief that working together to create a thriving local economy will, ultimately, benefit everyone else. And there’s hardly a better way to achieve that than through ice cream.

    I am not an ice cream lover (I know!), but this summer I tasted some of Little Baby's Ice Cream. It was delicious! They sell their ice cream out of a tricycle here in Philadelphia. Their flavors are very unique; I had a vanilla bourbon! I enjoyed eating ice cream that had been made and delivered by the hands that scooped it for me!

    I was lucky enough to take not one but two trips to an ice cream place in NYC that seems to be largely the same principle as this place, and OH MAN. You really can taste the love. This is kind of making me want to film a Sami Kelsh Eats Portland sequel to Sami Kelsh Eats New York sometime in the near future...

    Reminds me of our local Moo Creamery. A similar endeavor but a creamery that has taken on full food service as well. They source their meat and vegetables locally and make their own ice cream, breads, pickles...etc. So yummy! So glad this trend is catching on and that the art of good handmade food is not getting lost in the sea of chain restaurants!!

    Sounds a lot like Jeni's Ice Cream in Columbus, Ohio. Another cow to cone venture... this one features organic, non-homogenized milk from Snowville Creamery in Pomeroy, Ohio. I lived across the street from Jeni's of her shops for a year and actually lost some weight because the ice cream was SO DELICIOUS. I'd watch what I ate all week long just to reward myself with a big cone of Queen City Cayenne (chocolate and cayenne pepper) and Bangcock Peanut (peanut, coconut, and more cayenne). They also had a Salty Caramel, Cherry Lambic, Cardamom Lime, and a bunch of other amazing flavors. So yeah, Portland, you're cool... but OHIO thought of it first :-)

    Such a great article- one little thing to point out, though, is that you are focusing on Portland OR, not Portland, ME. Yes the West Coast Portland is much bigger, but the East Coast Portland also has amazing ice cream, many great breweries, wonderful coffee and a super-creative community as well. I do hope to make it out to the West Coast (and Salt and Straw is at the top of my list of musts when I do) soon, but I was a little jolted when trying to figure out which Portland the article was referencing.
