Your Opinion Matters

This is Nova, our Granddog. She has an opinion about everything, and although we respect that, she doesn’t know how to text, so we’ll never really know how she feels.

We are revamping our website, and are looking for testimonials from our guests. If you have left us a review on Facebook, please let us know if it’s ok to share it on our website. If you’d like to add a testimonial for the site, drop us a DM or an email!

Stretching those Grocery Dollars

It’s getting a bit tougher to stick to the grocery budget, as gas prices creep up and the supply chain has yet to settle down.

One of our favorite throwback shows is Struggle Meals. Host Frankie Celenza is an engaging chef who gives awesome tips on both cooking techniques and shopping hacks.

Struggle Meals will inspire even the most timid kitchen dweller to ditch the frozen entrees and begin to gain skills and confidence. Oh, and save money!

Food Trucks at Weddings

Those of us in the food truck industry are finding that, with COVID regulations, we are an important asset in allowing brides & grooms to serve guests safely.

There are many things to consider when choosing a food truck for your event. I tripped over this article today, and it brought up some important points. One I found concerning is the issue of whether or not your food truck is insured. In Maine, we must be insured for at least $1M in order to be licensed with the state. I always recommend people request a Certificate of Insurance when hiring a vendor to work your event.

It’s important to note that a food truck at a wedding is not going to set up and break down tables and do many other things a full service caterer might do. The price per person will be MUCH more manageable with a food truck or even multiple food trucks, so you can gauge your needs and desires with your budget when making decisions.

Find a food truck you can really trust. As a former event planner, I always look at things through both my lens as a caterer and also the lens of the person holding the event.

What is THE Best Hot Dog?

It’s a debate that will probably never cease. Last April, we were plotting and scheming our own little hot dog business, and we had to eat a lot of hot dogs before we found the one we decided was the best tasting dog. It’s also gluten free and all beef, so those were bonuses for us.

Some people just love those red snappers, and others need a mixture of pork and beef. Some like a mild flavor, and others like a little kick. Don’t get us started on the natural casing debate.

According to the NYTimes, Wellshire Farms and Hebrew National are the two best tasting dogs.

Delish agreed with thousands of die-hard NYC hot dog eaters, and chose Sabrett as the top dog.

ThrillList and Epicurious agreed with us, and chose Nathan’s Famous as the best tasting dog out there.

The one thing we can all agree on is this: every day is a little bit tastier with your favorite hot dog (especially one from a food truck!)
