Cool Versions Of Your Favorite Turkey Day Eats
Salt & Straw's ice cream wizard Tyler Malek never fails to disappoint with the creativity coming from his kitchen, particularly when it comes to the novelty flavors on his seasonal menus.
For November, he's turned his attention to the Thanksgiving Day table with ice cream interpretations of all the showstoppers—mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry stuffing, turkey, and of course, pumpkin pie. How, you ask, could such flavors be conceived into ice cream? Well, here's the full menu below, to give you somewhat of an idea. But just like the creepy concoctions he came out with in the Halloween series, like 'Dracula's Blood Pudding' and 'Essence of Ghost,' you just have to experience them for yourself.
And, when you do, you can feel good about it too because now through November 23rd, Salt & Straw is celebrating the season of gratitude with its annual "Buy a Pint, Give a Pint' event. For every pint of the Thanksgiving Celebration flavors sold in scoop shops, Salt & Straw will donate a pint of ice cream to The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank supporting them in their efforts to end hunger and food waste.
Salt & Straw Venice November Ice Creams
California Acorn & Chestnut Stuffing
"Homemade California acorn brown bread, and folded into a spiced chestnut ice cream. The star is truly those acorns, harvested in Northern California and blended into a flour, this stuff is potent and gives our stuffing bread a dark & nutty molasses flavor. We start with that homemade bread, cook it into a black pepper and fresh thyme laced bread pudding."
Buttered Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
"This whipped & frozen mashed potato ice cream is delightfully salty, buttery goodness, with a perfectly swirled ribbon of white chocolate gravy."
Salted Caramel Thanksgiving Turkey
"Sweet and buttery turkey brittle is folded into a turkey fat caramel ice cream, creating an astoundingly authentic flavor you’ll want to wrap up and take home for leftovers."
Sweet Potato Casserole with Maple Pecans
"Dig your spoon into rich, full-bodied sweet potato ice cream, balanced by an unbelievably light ribbon of mouth-watering maple syrup marshmallow fluff & homemade candied pecans."
Spiced Goat Cheese & Pumpkin Pie
"Indulge in warm spices, creamy, fresh goat cheese and streaks of fresh baked pumpkin pie filling. It’s almost as if we scooped out that yummy pumpkin custard straight from the pie shell and smattered it into a spicy, goaty, cheesecake ice cream."
