Over the past two weeks, I’ve been in and out of all sorts of food trucks throughout New York City, filming profile videos for the 2012 NYC Vendy Awards. This week, I’ll be releasing them. It’s been a pleasure spending time with very passionate, very dedicated food makers who’ve chosen to make a living in a very difficult and demanding business. Like one vendor explained: “Having a truck is like every issue a restaurant has to deal with AND every issue a drug dealer has to deal with…”
Though their food comes out quick and effortlessly, it’s not easy doing what they do. They’ll admit it too: the long hours, the prep work, the inevitable collection of parking tickets. However, each finalist also convinced me why it’s all been worth it to them, and that’s what I hope to show you in my video stories this week: the love and the passion put into each and every bite of food.
Today, Meet Adam Sobel of The Cinnamon Snail Vegan Organic food truck. A 2012 NYC Vendy Award Finalist.
Congrats to all the finalists! Be sure to get your tickets to the big event on September 15th.
Thanks for watching food. curated.! Happy eating!
