Coles Finest Food Truck

Gourmet Traveller hits the road this month, cooking up three original dishes inspired by ingredients from the Coles Finest range.

Inspired by delicious Australian products from the Coles Finest range, Gourmet Traveller's food editors have created three smart snacks perfect for the party season - and you can sample them for free this month in Sydney and Melbourne. Tasmanian hot- and cold-smoked salmon, cured in Demerara sugar and beech wood-smoked, is the star of a delicate salad of shaved fennel, peas and buttermilk dressing. Coles Finest free-range leg ham is a winner atop char-grilled sourdough with apple slaw and mustard dressing. Finally, think food truck, think doughnuts. GT's sugar-dusted numbers are offered three ways: filled with Coles Finest blood-orange marmalade, raspberry jam or red-gum honey. Don't miss the opportunity to taste all these snacks with our compliments when the Coles Finest Food Truck comes to Sydney and Melbourne.

Smoked salmon with shaved fennel and buttermilk dressing (pictured above, bottom left)
Coles Finest Tasmanian smoked salmon comes in two delicious varieties: the cold-smoked is cured in Australian sea salt and Demerara sugar, then smoked slowly with mountain ash and beech wood; while the hot-smoked is glazed with Tasmanian leatherwood honey, then hot-smoked with mountain ash and beech wood. We've created a salad to celebrate the sweet, smoky flavour and fine texture of both products.

Char-grilled sourdough with triple-smoked ham, apple slaw and mustard dressing (pictured above, bottom right)
Coles Finest leg ham begins with the finest free-range pork, which is cured with Mount Zero pink salt and a special blend of spices, then smoked over beechwood. In Sydney and Melbourne this month, we're serving it thinly shaved on char-grilled sourdough with mustard dressing and a crisp and tangy apple slaw.

Sugared doughnuts, done three ways: filled with Coles Finest jam, marmalade or honey (pictured above, top left)
It's impossible to stop at one of these yeast-raised, sugary beauties, so order them by the half-dozen in Sydney or Melbourne this month. Choose your favourite filling from tart raspberry jam, limited-edition blood-orange marmalade, or native red-gum honey. After all, what's a food truck without doughnuts?
