Alain Ducasse Wants a Food Truck in Paris
Recipe of the day
Who wants restaurants when you can have food trucks? Alain Ducasse, restaurateur with acclaimed restaurants in New York, Paris, and D.C., told the Washington Post that his newest desire is to open a food truck in Paris.
Ducasse is reportedly sniffing around the food truck of acclaimed chef (and number 33 on our list of America's Most Powerful People in Food in 2012), José Andrés. The James Beard Award winner's venture, Pepe, opened this week to rave reviews and long lines.
Paris isn't known for food truck culture — American Kristin Frederick opened a hamburger truck (Le Camion Qui Fume, or "The Smoking Truck") this past November, but rumor has it the truck's route has been snagged by French red tape.
Ducasse says his food truck, which would most likely be supplied by his café/bakery, Boulange Épicier, would be a mix of sandwiches, salads, and prepared veggies. While Andrés' Pepito de Iberico sandwich is certain to please, we can only imagine what delicious creations Ducasse would serve up on his truck.
