making s’mores Since 2015
It all started with James and Elise Kelly, the owners and makers of the gourmet twist on these all-American classic treats. James grew up in Michigan. An avid sports fan, he saw s’mores as the untapped cracker-jack of stadiums and fireside nooks alike. After marrying a native Oregonian in 2012, James found his s’mores soulmate in Elise. Together they started 1927, whose name is a homage to the first ever documented s’mores recipe from the Girls Scouts’ 1927 edition of their “Tramping and Trailing” newsletter. After a few years of growing their cart catering and s’mores kits ventures, they felt a s’morefront was the next step. Come late summer 2019 for a dessert at the new shop in downtown Portland to indulge in a torch-fired artisanal s’more.
