I salute Brigitte Nguyen CMC '03 on getting her own show on Food Network, "From the Kitchens Of..."
I just wish I hadn't come upon it before I saw the South Park episode on food porn. (Not what you think it is, not that I know what you think. God man, get your mind out of the gutter!)
Anyways, CMC's PR arm (no, not Michael Wilner CMC '11) has a good interview with Brigitte over at the school's website where she talked about the embattled food trucks, which she nonetheless likes.
I think the current food truck revolution is absolutely genius and I only wish it would catch on in Lexington! I've always loved the street food scene in other countries and this is the next best thing! Food trucks are an affordable way to eat food that is incredibly fresh, innovative, and just downright delicious. For food truck owners, it can really be all about the food without all the hurdles of managing a full service restaurant. And the best part is that you can change locations whenever you want!The knowledge of the local is part of what helped her win the National Council Cooking Contest's $50,000 cash prize in May 2009. You can watch her talk about that process below:
