The tour continues through the year, visiting food festivals, county fairs, events, as well as special feature visits with fairground management, event managers, food trucks and food stands, caterers and bakers. Founders, Christopher Ford and Andrew Nicora provide news, schedules, reviews, high-quality photography, video and media coverage on the Stitches ‘n Dishes blog site.
Ford and Nicora developed the “Stitch’s Dish Rating” to award one to five plates for service, quality, price, menu selection, and creativity. Ford, Nicora and Stitches ‘n Dishes Editor in Chief, Rodney Washington visit and review one-to-three food trucks, stands, caterers or bakers every week. Co-Founder, Andrew Nicora directs Stitches ‘n Dishes video coverage, soon to debut on the Stitches ‘n Dishes Youtube channel.
On Monday, Ford and Nicora, along with Stitches ‘n Dishes Editor in Chief, Rodney Washington, and Stitch, the Bichon Frise / Am. Staf. Terrier mix that inspired the Stitches ‘n Dishes concept, pulled into what many consider to be one of the best culinary destinations in the country, if not the world – San Francisco and they couldn’t be more excited.
Coined as “America’s Favorite City” San Francisco boasts one of the country’s most lively and vibrant food truck scenes.
We are in San Francisco this week ~ one of the world’s most respected culinary destinations ~ exploring some of the city’s most unique and exciting food trucks, and filming our adventure.
For todays selection I picked three trucks, the first, Fins On The Hoof ~ is a gourmet truck whose catch phrase is: “Where the sea meets the barnyard”. An illustration of a swimming pig seemed pretty adventurous to me and, since my mission this week is to try the new and the different, this truck sounded like the perfect opportunity to “wet my own hoof”, as it were.
I opted to try the Beluga Lentil and Smoked Trout Salad w/Pickled Red Onions, Walnuts and Creme Fraiche, and a Grilled Roquefort-Stuffed Merquez Lamb Burger w/Harissa Aioli, Tomato/Onion Compote with Organic Greens on a toasted Brioche Bun – Total Cost $15
The salad starts with a bed of Beluga Lentils (named after the caviar they resemble these lentils are black in color and earthy in flavor). Delicate pieces of smoked trout top the chilled lentils. Finally the salad is finished with walnuts, pickled purple onions and creme fraiche (resembles sour cream), which rounds out the dish nicely.
Visit the Stitches ‘n Dishes blog site to read the entire article, including the Merquez Lamb Burger stuffed with Roquefort cheese at Fins On The Hoof, and Stitch’s Dishes he awarded, as well as his international food odyssey at the Kasa Indian Truck, and the Triple B, a decadent taco, sinfully combined and placed on a warm corn tortilla topped with sweet red peppers known as “Momma’s Lil Peppers” and goat cheese at the Three B’s truck.
