Blueberry Slump
A sticky biscuit dough is dropped onto blueberries in this classic New England dessert, which is called a “slump,” “grunt,” or “cobbler,” depending on who you’re asking.

Salt & Straw …. Portland!

We’ve been to only a handful of places in this town more than once and the sweets at this artisan ice cream parlour very nearly became an addiction for us.  The first time we were there, so was Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern, but by the time we arrived at the front of the line, sampled our possibilities and ordered a tasting of four different flavours, that production took a backseat.

I hadn’t remembered that I had recently read a GQ article written by Alan Richman (resident food critic) in which he described the 10 best places in America for ice cream until days later.  I dug out the magazine and flipped to the page where Mr. Richman talks about the Honey Balsamic Strawberry with Cracked Pepper, which meant that we had to go back for more.

Today, we ate:

Sea Salt Ice Cream with Caramel Ribbon

Honey Lavender 

Grandma Malek’s Almond Brittle with Salted Ganache

Horchata Sorbet (seasonal)

Looking for some work in OR

Hey everybody,

It looks like we are having some appropriately restaurant based delays with our food truck, and I am looking for a job in the meantime. If its a bartending gig or something I can do at night, I’d probably work both the truck and the job when we open. I’m looking to reach out to anybody in Portland that may need to hire somebody like me to do pretty much anything. Obviously I would love to stay in the food business, but I’ll do anything.
