After a successful and very draining 24 hours that had myself not only developing very rudimentary signage and business cards for our grassroots proprietary venture, my lovely wife Kenni and I just prepared and served about 700 portions of our newly named Puffy Pan Bread at Share Our Strenth’s, Taste of the Nation. My eyes right now are being held open with toothpicks and I believe that is going to be a common theme over the next couple of days as I am elated to announce we will be “popping up” in the brick and mortar restaurant of Matt Maroni’s Gaztro Wagon venture (NOT on his food truck).
For those unfamiliar, pop up restaurants is a movement that has been gaining a great deal of speed recently, mostly on the shoulders of Chef Ludo Lefebvre. I met him briefly during my guest blogging assignment for the food truck wing of the NRA Show in May, and saw that his pioneering ways was recently written up in The New York Times.
In any case, Matt asked this week if I had any interest in doing this. I immediately thought it a great idea and planned on giving it a go next week Sunday the 22nd. Considering how the world turns and circumstances unfold however, Kenni and I decided to make a go of it this week.
So here’s the deal:
I hope you can come out to experience what I hope will be the first of many such endeavors!
