Tyler Malek is the Co-Founder and Head Ice Cream Maker for the Portland-based Salt & Straw Ice Cream. He has created more than 1,000 flavors, which we’re guessing had something to do with why he was selected as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 for “Changing the Way America Eats.” In this episode, we discuss his journey from starting an ice cream cart with his cousin Kim to operating over 20 locations. We touch upon why he is dedicating 20% of his menu to vegan flavors, how Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson came to be a fan and how and why he works with different elementary schools to inspire new flavors. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Plate… with Tyler Malek.
