    The mobile food trucks industry is on fire. And the craze is catching on locally, where entrepreneurs see it as a way to enter the food industry with lower overhead and operating costs.

  • Lagniappe Today Food Truck, The Trinity

    trinity

    My kitchen memories began very early, I was probably eight years old when I started prepping in my mom’s kitchen. I remember chopping, chopping and more chopping to prepare dinners. Unbeknownst to me I was prepping the “trinity”.

    No, I’m talking about the Holy Trinity, I’m talking about the ”cooking trinity” which consist of fresh onions, bell peppers, and celery. These three vegetables are the most important ingredients in Creole and Cajun traditional recipes. Maybe I should call it the trinity+1 since there is one special ingredient that I always use.... “garlic”.

    These fresh ingredients are used in the Lagniappe Today’s gumbo, jambalaya, chicken Creole, red beans, and etouffee.

    I could go on forever but I think you get it, just like I got it, the “trinity” puts the authentic in Louisiana cuisine. Other popular herbs and spices used in my dishes are fresh parsley, chives, bay leaves and other aromatic and flavorful garnishes. But the trinity is the number one, two and three ingredients that are used to make Lagniappe Today an Authentic Louisiana Cuisine food truck.

    And yes I still chop, chop, chop……

  • Lagniappe Today Food Truck, Thank You San Antonio

    Lagniappe Today Food Truck is now in its fourth week in San Antonio and we are having so much fun. We have new friends who come to Boardwalk on Bulverde (our home port) with their wine and enjoy our menu and other trucks too. Sitting under stars with some wine, Crawfish Etouffee Pistolettes and sharing moments with that special someone is indeed the way to live. San Antonio has given us some beautiful, comfortable evenings at the Boardwalk on Bulverde food truck park.

    We are taking the time to make our cuisine authentic and lovable. We use the chicken stock from the chicken we by fresh, real roux from scratch, pistolettes baked in Lafayette, and we are inspired by recipes from chefs, family and friends. Our guests seem to know and appreciate the difference. We have several fans that have been with us nearly every day since opening and we cannot be more proud. We are proud to bring GREAT Food Truck Cuisine  to San Antonio.Lagniappe Today Food Truck SuperBowl San Antonio

    We call this effort our ENCORE. After working in education and in the corporate world we are very appreciative  for what is coming our way. We are looking forward to bringing San Antonio our second Jazz Brunch at Boardwalk On Bulverde.

    This past Saturday was the first day we ventured away from the food truck park. We headed to Helotes Market Days First Saturday Fair (we will be back) where we served great Authentic Louisiana Cuisine. We capped off this past weekend with a private SuperBowl catering party. We pulled into the driveway and served our Authentic Louisiana Cuisine from the food truck to the guests of the party.

    This first month has been AMAZING....

    Live. Laugh. Lagniappe. Today.
