Default Food Truck Wars

Coming to my little burg next Saturday.

40 Gourmet Food Trucks from all over the State will line the streets to compete in 5 categories. Foodies will have a chance to vote on cuisines from Latin America, British, Caribbean, Gourmet Desserts and everything in between. The event will include Free Admission, a beer & wine garden, live music with national recording artist Tony Wynn, a free kidís area and more. Food costs generally run from $3 to $18. Most entrees run $6 to $8

Here are some: http://www.orlandosfoodtrucks.com/p/...ucks-list.html

That was fun! They may have had more than 40 trucks. We had lobster rolls, both cold with mayo and celery and hot with butter. Go those from here: http://www.bizjournals.com/orlando/b...r-lobster.html

Had cheese and locora flower pupusas from http://mayangrillorlando.com/index.html.

Kobe wagyu sliders with Thai sauce from the Red Koi:



For dessert we had tiramisu gelato and bananas Foster with a local orange twinge. Then we had cupcakes from a cool outfit from Orlando. They teach culinary skills to homeless people. The salted caramel was just outstanding. Check them out here: http://www.allthingssweetorlando.org/#

Not only can you find multiple trucks along your normal route daily, but we have a food truck rally every weekend in the Tampa Bay area...usually anywhere from 10-20 trucks or more and they vary each time.

One of my favorites is Stinky Bunz.

This is what went through my head when I read this part: First off, what good are culinary skills if you're homeless? Second, who would hire a dusty, toothless, vagabond who smells of urine as a sous chef?

Outside of my insensitivitiy to the less fortunate, this looks like a blast...I'm always one to spend a few extra bucks on some higher quality eats. And if they want to help a few bums out by giving them a marketable skill, then good for them.

You are a disgusting excuse for humanity.

You are definitely entitled to your opinion.

My apologies for feeling that I'm entitled to mine.

As a chef, and culinary arts instructor, I've worked in the past at a soup kitchen and part of the job was teaching culinary arts to those who were chronically unemployed due to circumstances such as single motherhood, homelesness, imprisonment,...do not disparage these people who are trying to make something of there lives through the cooking profession, the beauty is that culinary arts is a global learning experience, you don't have to be a genius to learn basic cooking principles, flavor profiles, etc... it is a great profession to give people a chance to succeed....(if I even need to explain or justify this to you, seems like a monumental waste of time)
