Whipping Up Some
Excitement in Portland
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.”
