Food truck event enterprise Mobile Food Rodeo is bringing back Winter Feast for its second year, joining forces with the Fremont Sunday Market on November 17 to gather up more than 20 food trucks and 10 breweries, even though summer is a thing of the past.
Each food truck chef will create a special $5 bite showcasing fall ingredients and hearty winter dishes. How Pickle Got Out of a Jam plans on a Thanksgiving-inspired croquette, with roast turkey, stuffing, cranberries, and yams, deep-fried and topped with gravy, as co-owner Venessa Goldberg says, “the best parts of Thanksgiving all smashed together.”
A red wine–braised rabbit pozole with winter vegetables will come from the Nosh food truck. The creamy butternut squash and sage soup with duck confit from Evolution Revolution will warm you up quite nice. On the sweeter side, Street Donuts is making a cinnamon-spiced donut with a pumpkin drizzle.
Ten local breweries will show off their seasonal winter beers. Look for Fremont Brewing with its Abominable Ale, Maritime Pacific with good ol' Jolly Roger, and Hale's Ales pouring the Wee Heavy. Hilliard’s, too, with its Extra Special Belgian, even though the Hilliard's guys had to delay the brewing to keep up with the demand for its Seahawks tribute pale ale, The 12th Can. Also, Fremont Mischief is mixing a winter cocktail called Smash No. 9 with its Workers No. 9 vodka, muddled cranberries, allspice, Rachel's Ginger Beer, and lime.
The area will be set up with covered areas and heaters aplenty, so rain or cold, it should be nice, dry, and toasty. Plus after a high-ABV beer flight or two you’ll be feeling just fine. Which also means the Santa photo booth is going to have some interesting holiday snapshots.
Proceeds go to support The World is Fun—a local non-profit. Winter Feast starts at 10am and continues throughout the day until 4pm. Keep tabs on the Mobile Food Rodeo Facebook page for updates, but here's the full list of participating trucks.
