Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

As head ice cream maker for Salt & Straw Portland, LA, and now San Francisco, and the Wiz Bang Bar in Portland’s Pine Street Market, Tyler Malek has been instrumental, along with cousin and Salt & Straw founder and CEO Kim Malek, in creating the chef driven, small batch ice cream movement. Malek and his team hand make flavors that showcase the best local, organic and sustainable ingredients from Oregon, Southern California and Bay Area producers and artisans. Malek has been selected as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 and Eater Young Guns Semi-Finalists for 2013. He discovered his passion for blending flavors together when studying abroad in Beijing, China and traveling throughout Vietnam and Cambodia.

All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
