The Food Network has enlisted celebrity chef Tyler Florence to help bring food truck culture to reality TV. On Sunday August 15th, the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race premiers at 10PM EST. Sadly, no members of Atlanta’s burgeoning community will be on the show. However, a number of notable street slinging foodies are featured. The complete list … after the jump!
Crepes Bonaparte; Orange County, CA / website – twitter
While the concept of crêpes is distinctly high falutin’, Christian Murcia’s French outfitted staff dish out crêpes by the boat loads to anyone and everyone.
Nom Nom Truck; Los Angeles, CA / website – twitter
One of the heavy hitters of the food truck world, Nom Nom was started by Misa Chien and Jennifer Green. They fuse things like Vietnamese sandwiches and tacos and they have one hell of a product.
Ragin’ Cajun; Hermosa Beach, CA
Stephen Domingue resurrected his failed restaurant into one of the most popular Cajun eateries in SoCal. The catch? It’s all on wheels!
A little “jumping of the shark”? Perhaps … but I’m a foodie and therefore, I’m hooked! While you can catch all the shows updates via their Food Network homepage, we’ve made it easy to follow all the action via The Great Food Truck Race twitter list. While you’re there, be sure to follow us on twitter via @RoamingATL for all the street food news you can swallow!
