One of my favorite memories from childhood was the county fair. The sites, sounds, and smells. I can remember weaving in and out of the grounds from rides to games, tickets to shows, past these intoxicating trucks that were just encompassed in these amazing scents. The food trucks. The heart of the fair, really. And no food truck holds a closer place to my summer heart than a good ol’ hot dog truck! Now those days are long gone, and nothing about this weeks professional is “good ol’”, but the very concept of having one of these magical vehicles of deliciousness be part of a big day, is enough to warm my soul, and take me back to those dog days of summer. Take my vision of youth, and spin it right on it’s head, and you have a good sense of this amazing experience. The food truck craze has been one of my favorite trends on the wedding scene, over the last few years. What an amazing and FUN way to feed your guests hearts and bellies! Pippy’s is a great option, who doesn’t fall short on fun, by far!
Pippy’s Food Truck is based out of our neighboring town, Palenville, NY. They are going into their fourth year of business and serving gourmet hot dogs, veggie dogs, locally made sausage, grilled seasonal vegetables, barbequed meats, homemade toppings and much, much more. Pippy’s passion for food trucks began in the 1970’s when she was a little girl, helping her grandmother, Lonnie Smith, on her hot dog truck. (She even uses her meat and onion sauce recipes!) Pippy’s is a vintage 1972 International box truck, lovingly restored and hand painted.
All toppings and sides are homemade, using locally sourced ingredients and purveyors. This means corn on the cob from Story Farms in the summer, raw sauerkraut from Sauerkraut Seth’s of Philmont, sausage from Fleisher’s of Kingston, Dirty Blonde onion sauce from New World Home Cooking, spicy homemade chili sauce, and much more. Pippy’s takes classic Americana and puts a modern, eclectic spin on it. One customer favorite is the Banh mi, made with homemade pate, house pickled carrots, mayo, sriracha, and cilantro, and can be made vegetarian, too. She is always looking for new artisans to feature on her truck, and Pippy’s collaborates with local culinary talent to elevate the food truck to the next level.
