Food Truck Festival Set For This Weekend

November 3, 2017

Healthy food items, some with a unique Bermuda twist, are on the menu at this year’s Bermuda Food Truck Festival, taking place in Hamilton this weekend.

A spokesperson said, “Nonna’s Kitchen, Wild Herbs & Plants of Bermuda, and Coco Vida are all new to the festival line-up and each has curated healthy dishes to answer a demand from last year’s festival-goers.”

“Last year’s Bermuda Food Truck Festival received very positive reviews and when we asked for feedback, adding healthy food options came up several times – especially from our visitors,” said Bermuda Tourism Authority Product Development Manager Tashae Thompson.

“I think visitors and locals will be very happy with how we have responded to their feedback. The gluten-free and vegan plates, some of them with locally foraged ingredients, will be a highlight on Sunday.”

“Wild Herbs & Plants of Bermuda offers experiences to visitors that include a walking tour to harvest ingredients followed by a cooking demonstration.On Sunday, some of their most popular locally harvested dishes will be available. Meantime, Coco Vida focuses on frozen coconut treats that are vegan and gluten-free.”
