food truck tasting February 29th, 2012
Last night, Jill and I attended the The Fourth Estate’s Wine and Food Truck Pairing Dinner at the National Press Club. That’s a long, fancy title for what consisted of a giant food-truck dinner. I really wanted to go to this event because, since I’m now working from home, I never get to eat at (or even see, really) the food trucks, even though they seem to be a new phenomenon that are EVERYWHERE. I wasn’t sure what to expect, honestly I thought there would be a giant room where you would walk around to sample tables, but instead we had a 6-course, sit-down dinner with servers and all. The dishes came out at a pretty leisurely pace, and we got to spend three hours blabbing away. We thought all the food was pretty exceptional and we even got to hear from the truck owners/chefs between courses, when they would talk a little bit about their ingredients, how they got started, and what areas they serve. Each course came with a wine tasting, too. Awesome! (for Jill – #foodtrucks)
(Crab Cake not pictured, I ate that too fast…)
And when we left… all the buses were lined up outside.
