"Pop Up, Schmop Up" kickoff
Biscuit Love Truck to partner with student for truck takeover, March 29
March 6, 2014 -- Biscuit Love Truck owners Karl and Sarah Worley will turn over the reigns to local high school student, Charlie Hilly, at a pop up style event on Saturday, March 29, 6-8 p.m., at Nashville Farmers Market. This is the first in the "Pop Up, Schmop Up" series, special food events cultivated by Biscuit Love Truck to showcase their community partnerships and culinary playfulness.
Hilly, with the guidance of the Worleys, will cook and serve a meat & three style menu that represents his food truck concept, Namaste Y'all, a fusion of Indian and Southern cuisine.
Tickets will be available at the door for $20 per person, with proceeds benefiting The Nashville Food Project. Reservations are encouraged: email@example.com.
Hilly, a freshman at Hume Fogg Academic Magnet School, met Sarah Worley at a recent high school career fair at the Music City Center. While 5,000 Nashville area high school freshmen attended the event, Hilly & Worley made a sincere connection that day.
"This kid came up to me and said 'I'm going to start a food truck that's going to put you out of business one day,'" said Worley. "He proceeded to tell me about all the street food he's eaten, his plans for his own business, and his unique culinary perspective. I couldn't believe a high school freshman had such a focused business concept, and the conversation continued past that day. Karl and I have been brainstorming with Charlie, and ultimately the idea for this event came about."
Hilly has been working with the Worleys to gain food truck experience. He's also worked to develop his concept and menu for the event with their guidance. Attendees will sample a full menu of Hilly's Indian-Southern cuisine in Nashville Farmers Market's Grow Local kitchen.
"I always loved to stand by my mom in the kitchen and help cook spicy, ethnic foods," said Hilly. "My first recipe was a spicy habenero salsa, which I developed when I was nine. I met friends at the Ivy House who introduced me to Indian cooking, and living in Nashville, I've followed the food truck scene. Combining those ideas into a concept is something I can't wait to do at this event."
