PDX INNOVATORS
A Celebration of Creative Food and Thinking in Portland, Oregon

It was an evening to remember. Last month, iSi brought together some of Portland, Oregon’s finest culinary talents for a one-night-only, exclusive dinner celebrating the fresh flavors and fresh thinking of the Pacific Northwest.

The dinner, a culmination of several months of engaging with Portland’s vibrant food scene, served both to inspire beyond the Pacific Northwest but to also thank regional customers and advocates who have supported iSi throughout the years. “By sharing how tastemakers in Portland use iSi to make food better, we hope to inspire other chefs and businesses in other great food cities to do the same,” says Jeanette Brick, iSi North America’s President.

For the chefs, the iSi-hosted event provided an opportunity to connect with the brand and experiment with new tools and techniques. The dinner also provided a fun and collaborative environment to cook and share their food with a room full of friends, fans, media, and supporters. For chef Jose Chesa whose namesake restaurant served as the event venue, “It was an honor to have so many of Portland’s finest all cooking together in one kitchen.” For iSi, Portland and PDX Innovators is just one way to stay better connected with those shaping the culinary landscape of tomorrow, not just in Portland but throughout the United States.

FRESH THINKING AND FRESH WHIPPED CREAM IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST

Milkshakes, hot chocolate, and ice cream sundaes… none of these treats would be complete without a swirl of fluffy whipped cream. Like so many things we love, we take whipped cream for granted – It’s time to think about how it perfectly tops our favorite foods – and how fresh whipped cream can make a world of difference.

As 2016 came to a close, news of a whipped cream shortage had many in a state of worry. A “Whipped Cream Shortage is Looming,” warned the LA Times. “The Nation Is Facing a Dire Whipped-Cream Shortage During Prime Dessert Season,” reported Time. The problem, which stemmed from an accident at a Florida plant which caused a shortage of nitrous oxide (the gas used to propel whipped cream in aerosol cans) forced makers of canned whipped cream to halt production until supplies of the crucial gas could be stabilized. Disappointed customers flooded Twitter. Restaurants and businesses scrambled to find a solution.

But for those who made the switch away from aerosol cans to fresh whipped cream, using the iSi whipper and charger system, the nitrous oxide shortage had no affect on their ability to provide fresh whipped cream to their customers. Using individual cream chargers of nitrous oxide gas, users of the iSi System are able to control and customize their supply by making fresh whipped cream in restaurants or at home as needed.

The ease of making fresh whipped cream on demand is just one of the many reasons why Burgerville, a popular fast casual chain in Oregon and Washington, uses iSi. “With 42 locations and a fairly young crew, we needed a system that was easy to train and implement but didn’t compromise on taste,” says Burgerville’s Chef Becky McGrath.

“We pride ourselves on sourcing the freshest and best ingredients we can,” says McGrath. For whipped cream, that means heavy cream from Sunshine Dairy located in NE Portland, a little sugar, vanilla, and nothing more. “It’s so simple and tastes so good,” says McGrath. With a milkshake program that includes classic flavors like Mocha Perk and Mint & Oreo, in addition to a rotating collection of seasonal/regional favorites like Salted Caramel using Jacobsen Salt Co., Chocolate Hazelnut, and Fresh Strawberry, Raspberry and Marionberry from Leipold Farms near Mt. Hood, Burgerville’s milkshakes are not to be missed.

Another Portland hot spot using iSi whippers to make fresh whipped cream is 180, co-owned by PDX innovator, Chef Jose Chesa, his wife Cristina Baez, and partner David Martin. Their authentic, “best desserts we ate in 2016,” Spanish-style xurros have taken the city by storm.

To compliment their menu of made-to-order xurros, the shop offers an array of espresso-based drinks and drinking chocolate known as xocolata, all available with fresh whipped cream upon request. “I use iSi in my other restaurants, Ataula and Chesa, so using them at 180 made sense,” states Chesa. “We wouldn’t serve anything other than the real deal, plus I get to add fresh vanilla, or pimentón, and have fun with it,” says Chesa who grew up appreciating authentic food traditions in his native Spain. He felt the same appreciation for fresh ingredients when he moved to Portland, Oregon and thankfully the city has become more delicious as a result.

Eggnog Cream Topping for your Holiday Coffee

Biography-Picture

Living a rural life in Rutland, Vermont has inspired Chefs Brittany and Keith McNeal to change their relationship with food.  “Almost everything that we put on the table for our family and friends comes from within a 15 mile radius.  Brittany and I have had the honor of building relationships with local farmers and beginning to understand a new narrative on food that we had limited exposure to in the suburbs of Maryland.” This is third in a series of Farm to Fork blogs that the talented Chefs McNeal have shared with us on CreativeWhip.com.

 

This is another great recipe that has a daily application in our home. Since its cold about 6 months out of the year here eggnog never really gets old, especially when it’s paired with a nice latte or espresso. Now, down to the subject of eggnog. Should it be made from scratch or bought in a store? I bet you can probably guess my response… YES! it can and should be made from scratch, but if you don’t have the time a high quality organic eggnog will do just fine for this recipe. Last year I stumbled upon a family recipe in one of my father’s recipe books for homemade eggnog, and have haven’t looked back since. The key is to whip your own egg whites, and to add a nice quality bourbon (just for fun) cinnamon whiskey adds a whole different dimension if you like a little spice. This recipe is another great opportunity to utilize your raw milk and Vermont maple syrup from our previous blog entry if you’ve taken the time to find the products in your local area.


Sitting down in the morning with a hot cup of coffee is irreplaceable. After our daughter, Piper, heads off to school it’s nice to enjoy the Eggnog Cream topping over coffee with one another at the harvest table before I start my chores for the day on the farm. This easy to prepare recipe takes an everyday cup of coffee and transforms it into a rockstar that you will be drinking year round after your first cup. The whipped topping stores well in the refrigerator, so you can make a big batch and enjoy the topping for at least a week. There’s no end to delights you can will find yourself topping beyond coffee. From topping a pumpkin pie, to a swirl on top of your peppermint ice cream the possibilities are endless.

We hope that our writings and recipes offer unique perspectives on food through the eyes of chefs in a rural setting. Most importantly we hope that the recipes in the series will become favorites to our readers. All of the food in the series highlight ingredients and techniques that we love; food that our family eats regularly and is near and dear to our every day dining table.

Eggnog Cream Topping

Equipment:
iSi Sieve and Funnel
1 Pint Gourmet Whip
1 Cream Charger

Ingredients:
6 eggs (separate yolks and whites and reserve both)
192 g. sugar
1000 ml raw milk
500 ml high quality bourbon
500 ml heavy cream
4 tbsp. maple syrup
Fresh nutmeg to taste

Preparation:
To make the eggnog separate egg yolks and egg whites into different bowls. To start, slowly begin adding the sugar to the egg yolks while whipping vigorously until yolks take on a white color (reserve a quarter cup of the sugar for the egg whites). Add in the raw milk and cream while whisking all ingredients together. Begin whisking in the bourbon once the milk and egg mixture is well incorporated and grate fresh nutmeg in to taste. Finally, bring back the egg whites, and begin to whisk with the reserved sugar until they have soft peaks.

Put all ingredients into a Pint sized (~16fl. oz.) iSi Whipper, screw on 1 iSi cream charger and shake vigorously for 6 shakes, test and if not stiff enough, shake a little more. Top your favorite beverage or delicious delight and enjoy!

Layer the yogurt with desired fruit mixture and granola in parfait style. Top with cinnamon and granola to serve.

 

City Spotlight: PORTLAND
Oregon’s Food Pioneers

By Judiaann Woo, Photography by Gregor Halenda

“While the rest of the country grew infatuated with rock-star chefs and outlandish theatrical dining, Portland built a new model from scratch – food first, do-it-yourself, custom-crafted for pure joy, and everyone invited to the table.”

– Karen Brooks, The Mighty Gastropolis: Portland: A Journey Through American’s New Food Revolution

The rumors are true. Portland: “The land of milk and honey — also coffee, tea, beer, wine, game, berries, crab, salmon, ice cream in flavors lifted from food trucks,” is “America’s #1 Food City” according to food critic Tom Sietsema of The Washington Post.

Portland may seem like an unlikely candidate to play such a major role on the world’s culinary stage but these days, you can’t open a magazine and not see a Portland chef, restaurant, or artisan mentioned. Even more impressive is how much influence this small Pacific Northwest town has had – and continues to have – in the world of food and drink and how it’s potentially shaping what we’ll all be eating and drinking in the years to come.

Portland, well-known for its collaborative chef community, is a perfect place to get people thinking about iSi in thoughtful new ways. To help capture this fresh thinking, iSi curated a group of PDX Innovators to share ideas on what makes iSi an essential tool in today’s kitchen, bar, and coffee shop.

In this feature, we focus our attention on two of the city’s new food pioneers: Naomi Pomeroy of Beast and Gregory Gourdet of Departure.

16020-isi-naomi-155It can be agued that nobody epitomizes Portland’s new food scene better than James Beard Best Chef Northwest winner, Naomi Pomeroy. Sure, there are others who have been around longer or have more restaurants to their credit but Naomi captures the spirit of Portland’s eclectic food better than most.

Her restaurant, Beast, was one of the first to grab the attention of the nation’s food literati and images of her holding a butchered pig became the calling card for many young cooks who flocked to Portland to trade in big city kitchen life for more “personal cooking” and to play with Oregon’s abundance of ingredients.

Pomeroy, who just released her first cookbook Taste & Technique, is largely self-taught and cooks from her gut using mostly classic techniques and equipment. But as artists do, Naomi keeps evolving and so does her cooking. “I’m at a point now where I can experiment more with different applications and ingredients and that’s allowed me discover new ways to use iSi equipment in my kitchen that still feels very authentic to my personal style,” says Pomeroy.

A perfect example of a seamless application is the iSi-made hollandaise that she serves over poached duck eggs and seasonal Farmers’ market hash on her weekend menu. The sauce is stored in an iSi whipper, which keeps the emulsion light, airy, and perfect throughout the busy brunch service. In Portland, where brunch is a spectator sport, a perfect hollandaise can make or break your reputation in town. Naomi’s is a winner.

16020-isi-naomi-123

You might recognize Gregory Gourdet as the soft spoken but edgy Brooklyn-turned-Portland chef that made his way to the finale of Bravo TV’s Top Chef last season. While he didn’t win season 12, he won the hearts of many who make dining at Departure, his popular Pan-Asian-inspired rooftop restaurant at the Nines Hotel, a must-do for anyone visiting the Rose City.

16020-isi-gregory-171While Asian-forward may not be what you might typically associate with iSi applications, Gourdet, known for his complex, bold flavors, and stunning plates, is a natural fit for iSi. “I first used iSi equipment regularly when I worked in Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s kitchens in NYC but they’ve always been a part of my essential kitchen tools because of their versatility to adapt to whatever style of food I’m cooking,” says Gourdet.

“I like to create lots of different textures on one plate,” says Gourdet. In his dessert featuring hibiscus coconut sticky rice, mango, coconut jelly, passionfruit curd, and puffed rice, Gourdet ties all the flavors and textures together with a warm coconut foam made simply with coconut milk steeped with pandan leaves, sugar, salt and a little gelatin.

16020-isi-gregory-185

While Portland didn’t invent nose-to-tail, farm-to-table, artisan-everything approach to food, Portland does it in such a way that captures the imagination of the world. That, coupled with a quiet confidence to present unflashy foods but super well-executed food, has made Portland a Mecca for ingredient-focused cuisine and some of the brightest talents in the country.

In the coming months, we’ll share more from Portland and introduce you to others who are using iSi in very Portland ways.

Anyone who has played around with the Gourmet Whip in their kitchen knows that it’s the perfect tool for making whipped cream. Just add some heavy whipping cream (with or without a sweetener), charge, and Voila! Perfect whipped cream in seconds with no whisking.

Aficionados of the Gourmet Whip may also know that with the new iSi Rapid Infusion tool kit, the Gourmet Whip can also be used to rapidly infuse countless solid flavors into just about any liquid – the flavor combinations are seemingly endless. Try lemon zest, vodka and five minutes under pressure  – and you will have the freshest, brightest, most aromatic citron ever! Your Gourmet Whip just went from whipped cream to cocktail service. Bee’s Knees, anyone?
ramos-gin-fizz-r2Gourmet Whips are coming out of the kitchen and into the bar with a whole host of new ingredients and new results!  Have you tried filling your Gourmet Whip with egg whites? If you’ve ever made a meringue you know how much energy it takes to form those perfect peaks – Try the Gourmet Whip and iSi Chargers for making meringue, and you’ll find a reason to use one to top your favorite classics!: Try it on a Pisco Sour or Ramos Gin Fizz!

pisco-sour-r2Cocktail meringues take considerable energy to shake hard enough to emulsify the egg whites  – but now you can forget the endless shaking! Add all of the cocktail ingredients, except the egg whites, to your cocktail shaker, and shake and strain as usual. Reserve the egg white for the recipe in your Gourmet Whip, charged with iSi Chargers, chilled and ready for an order. Give it a quick shake, dispense on top of the cocktail and there you have it! A perfect egg white meringue cocktail every time.

If cracking eggs and separating the whites from the yolk is not practical at your bar, you can use Pre-packaged Egg Whites , which are readily available in the dairy case of most grocery stores (with many alternative products like it available too). Meringues are so easy to create in the Gourmet Whip, and with so many different sweeteners available (agave, honey syrup, maple syrup, stevia, etc) you can vary your flavors endlessly. Food colorings can also be fun, and some, like beet juice, are natural and dye-free.

For over 50 years, the spirit of innovation has been a part of the Culinary history and legacy at iSi. This fall, iSi has partnered with some talented food and drink visionaries in Portland, Oregon to create the PDX Innovators Club. Equipped with our Gourmet Whip, Professional Chargers, and the iSi Accessories they need, they are ready to whip up some excitement in this culinary hotspot known for its good coffee, good libations, and trend-setting food scene.

Allow us to introduce you to the Club. Some of these faces might be familiar from TV and magazines; others are newer to the scene but getting the attention of those in the know. All are using iSi equipment in their kitchens or at the bar to maximize flavors, create new textures, and improve efficiencies in their service.

In the next few months, we’ll be sharing a lot more from this group: new techniques, new ideas, and lots of real-world inspiration for your own kitchens and business.  In the meantime, follow them on social and see what’s inspiring them now in the city that Time magazine called “America’s new food Eden.”

Trend Alert:
MATCHA MATCHA MADNESS

If Instagram posts are any indication of the latest food fads, matcha lattés are trending. Food-forward grammers are working hard to capture the perfect latté in shades of verdant green and it’s the coffee shops and tea salons that are offering drinks made with this whole leaf, green tea powder that are winning on social media and bringing in new customers. With more consumer awareness comes increased demand for this antioxidant-rich, caffeinated alternative to coffee.

Inspired by a trip to Japan, partners and co-owners Michelle and Ramon Puyane opened Chalait in 2015, a popular Manhattan café (now with two locations), focused on serving a variety of matcha beverages. While they also serve traditional espresso drinks, it’s their whipper-made matcha latté that has become their signature item. Using the iSi Thermo Whip has allowed them to consistently and efficiently execute high-quality matcha lattés at a New York City-pace. Matcha drinks now represent a solid sixty percent of their sales. While honoring the traditions of matcha, they understood the need to make it more accessible and appealing to Western customers.

Puyane, who was familiar with iSi whippers for whipped cream, first developed this technique when he thought about the pressure needed to extract a perfect shot of espresso. A well-executed shot is often characterized by the crema that forms on top. He wondered if he could create a similar effect using a pressurized whipper. After a little experimenting, Puyane discovered the significant benefits of using an iSi whipper, which include a “faster and more efficient execution of each matcha latté while still preserving the custom-made feel that customers want. The whipper creates an overall creamier mouth feel and allows for a better platform for latté art,” says Puyane. The creamier mouth feel is a significant plus for a drink with a tendency of being gritty when not mixed correctly.

At Chalait, each matcha latté is made to order starting with a batch mixture of pure matcha powder suspended in water heated to 175 degrees Fahrenheit. The base is charged with nitrous oxide gas under pressure in an iSi Thermo Whip that creates an emulsion faster than the traditional method of mixing each serving by hand using a small bamboo whisk. “The thermally insulated whipper also keeps the mixture at a consistent temperature for service,” notes Puyane. When dispensed into a serving cup, the whipper produces “a matcha micro foam” similar to the crema on a shot of espresso. The creamier emulsion makes for a better conduit for steamed milk or milk alternative, which can then be transformed into a photo-worthy rosette, heart, or tulip by the barista.

With more matcha items showing up on menus around the country and more consumers wanting to try alternatives to coffee, the matcha trend shows no signs of slowing down.

Technique: Matcha Latté

Makes 24, 8-ounce matcha lattés

Ingredients:
About 2 tablespoons matcha, adjust to taste
.5 liter water, heated to 175˚F
Steamed milk, or milk alternative

Pro Tip:
• The natural sweetness of almond milk is a nice compliment to the flavor of matcha. It also steams well for latté art.
• Use “everyday” grade matcha for milk-based drinks. Anything of lesser quality should be reserved for baking and other food preparations.

Equipment:
.5 liter iSi Thermo Whip or iSi Gourmet Whip
1 iSi Cream Charger

Procedure:
Combine hot water and matcha together and pour into iSi whipper. Charge with one cream charger and shake well. To serve, dispense matcha mixture into serving cup and top with steamed milk.

Experience Something NEW
from iSi at the NRA Show:
Booth 7164 in North Hall, and
Booth 11417 at the Bar 2016 Show.

Everybody knows an iSi Whipper can whip cream. But come on. It’s time to take off the training wheels and shoot for the moon. An estimated two million servings a day in the USA come out of an iSi whipper and many of those servings are not just whipped cream according to Jeanette Brick, Vice President of sales and marketing. “iSi goes beyond whipped cream with accessories that extend the use of the whipper into totally new territory,” she explains.

Watch Chef Aaron Lirette of GreenRiver in Chicago at the iSi NRA booth 7164 – North Hall, make imaginative light bites and mock-tails without using any cream at all. He will rely on egg whites and other ingredients to stabilize his recipes. Chefs are finding that it’s possible to use expensive ingredients in an economical way because flavors are concentrated, and portions are aerated.

“The creativity that is coming from chefs using the iSi whippers is so much more robust than the foams and flavored creams we saw a few years ago,” says iSi Culinary Ambassador and James Beard Award Winner, Chef Bradford Thompson. “It’s especially interesting to see the use of the whippers to make more menu items a-la-minute. The whippers allow you to maximize flavors and create a unique and consistent guest experience at all levels of dining.”

JALAPENOInfusions are a fascinating example of innovation. Mixologist, Al Klopper is creating iSi Rapid Infusions at the Bar 16 show (booth11417). The pressure in the canister allows for rapid infusion of aromatic solids and liquids so a mixologist can speedily concoct a jalapeno infused tequila; a chef can quickly infuse an olive oil with chili or rosemary. A process that once took days or weeks can be accomplished in just a few minutes. It was the U.S. mixologist David Arnold, author of Liquid Infusions, who found that iSi Whippers “make very good infusions because things are made fresher. A rapid infusion will give you more half notes and less bitter notes. I use it for cocoa nibs because it favors the chocolaty notes and not the bitterness. I also use it for coffee infusions that aren’t as bitter,” Arnold explains.

Chef Ashley Simone will be whipping up all kinds of uniquely flavored cream in the iSi Ice-cream and Coffee Bar at NRA booth 7164- North Hall.

Don’t miss the new iSi/Culinary App – free for Android and IOS devices-it gives chefs access to hundreds of recipes right at their fingertips.

Star chefs will be demonstrating their artistry with the new iSi Professional Chargers throughout the day. Expect Chef Aaron Lirette of GreenRiver, Chef Ashley Simone of Maison Cuisine, and Mixologist, Al Klopper, of FIG Catering to wow you with their imaginative creations.
