Free Food Truck Fest Tonight: May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor
Tonight starting at 5:30 p.m., BBC America will host a free food truck fest at the Santa Monica Food Truck Lot at Main and Ocean to promote the premiere of No Kitchen Required. The new reality competition show is a sort of Top Chef-meets-Survivor battle in which a trio of chefs "are dropped off in remote locations where they must work with the locals to hunt, forage and collect ingredients for a locally inspired meal."
As with the case when you have to compete with anyone for free food, BBC America recommends that you get there as early as possible. Participating trucks include The Buttermilk Truck, Lobsta Truck, Frysmith and CoolHaus. There also will be a screening of the first episode of the show at 7 p.m. before it officially premieres on April 3 on BBC America.
