This just in from the Four Seasons Biltmore in Montecito:
With eight destinations, three states and more than 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometres) to cover, the first official Four Seasons Food Truck hits the road this fall. Known as the FS Taste Truck, the vehicle and its tour provides a new, mobile stage for the brand’s culinary talent to connect with their local communities.
“Food is a passion for us at Four Seasons and we are always seeking to share that in inspiring and exciting ways, whether it’s through a Michelin-star dining experience or the perfect beer and burger pairing at one of our gastropubs,” says Guy Rigby, vice president of food & beverage in the Americas. “We want to keep our chefs engaged in something that is very relevant and the food truck movement fits the bill. It’s fun, unexpected and will foster the notion that Four Seasons does things differently.”
Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara will man the truck September 30 -October 6, 2013, making stops at Deckers headquarters on October 1, downtown’s 1st Thursday on October 3, on Anacapa Street near the Santa Barbara Farmers Market followed by Oreana Winery in the Funk Zone on October 5 and East Beach on October 6. The custom-created menu will consist of street food style Cal-Italian fare including panini and wraps, BBQ short ribs with smoked mozzarella and arugula, sweet potato fries, seasonal salads, desserts such as chamomile panna cotta and more. On October 4, the truck will be at Telegraph Brewing Company serving up a special “Octoberfest” menu to complement beers on tap including Telegraph’s 1927 Ale brewed exclusively for Four Seasons The Biltmore.
The FS Taste Truck will be rolling into the following cities throughout the fall:
September 16-22 – Palo Alto, California
September 23-29 – San Francisco, California

In addition to providing an exceptional culinary experience, the FS Taste Truck tour benefits a good cause. Following its completion, a portion of the total proceeds of the tour will be donated to Chefs to End Hunger, a charity that works with hotels, restaurants, and food service operations across the country to redistribute excess prepared food to those in need.
