It came, it fed, it conquered. Over the first two weeks of December the GT x Coles Finest Food Truck, powered by the Eat Art Truck crew, rolled through Sydney and Melbourne dishing up free eats for all - and boy, was it a hit.
Altogether the team handed out over 5,825 servings of the three dishes on offer, which were designed by the GT food team using ingredients from the Coles Finest range. There was potato salad with beech-smoked Tasmanian salmon, finished off with shaved fennel and a buttermilk dressing and sourdough crostini topped with apple slaw, a mustard dressing and free-range ham, cured in Mount Zero pink river salt and spices before being triple-smoked over beech. For the sugar fiends it was all about the doughnuts accompanied by raspberry jam made from Yarra Valley berries, native red-gum honey from Beechworth in Victoria or blood-orange marmalade made from the cream of the season's harvest.
Mo Moubayed from Eat Art Truck says the team had a ball working with Coles and GT. "We have been able to take the truck to fantastic locations in Sydney and Melbourne and showcase amazing dishes," he says. The best part? "Seeing our customers leave with a smile on their face is what makes it all worthwhile."
