Red Hot - Vintage Food Truck

<h2><img alt="" src="" width="100%" />Hello my friends and family!</h2> <p>As someone who loves to create and is passionate about <strong>American cooking and baking</strong>, I&#39;ve decided to take on the challenge of joining the &quot;street food&quot; movement here in France.&nbsp;</p> <p>Follow me on this tasty adventure!</p> <p>This year I bought a<strong> &#39;vintage&#39; 1974 </strong>French &#39;George et Jacques&#39; camper. At the time of its construction, it was already a <strong>throw-back to the 1950s</strong> with its rounded silhouette and lovely symmetry.<img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>I have started to bring the caravan&nbsp;up to European health and food service standards (HACCP norms).&nbsp; It&#39;s the beginning of a time-consuming, expensive and ambitious project for this mom of three busy boys, and a very happy one.</p> <h2><strong>What am I going to serve??</strong></h2> <p>America&#39;s favorite dishes, of course, especially in the 1950s!</p> <p><strong>The Hamburger:&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong>100% beef, 100% authentique!</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>The Cheeseburger:</strong> The only way to improve The Hamburger!</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>The Real American Hot Dog:</strong> No <em>baguette </em>served here! What if&nbsp;you add cheese?&nbsp; A Cheese Dog!&nbsp; And what if you add chili?&nbsp; A Chili Dog!&nbsp; And why not a Chili Cheese Dog?&nbsp; The possibilities are endless! (you US and UK folk may be familiar with the variations of a hot dog, but the French Market is about to discover them all...)</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>French Fries:</strong> Okay, yes, this one is actually already named for this country, but Onion Rings are not, and are also a specialty that has been greatly underexploited here.&nbsp; <strong>Fries and Rings:&nbsp;Hamburger and Hot Dog&#39;s BFFs.</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>And after?<strong> A dessert? </strong>A snack? Cookies, brownies, cupcakes, carrot cake, cheese cake, pancakes (for those early morning events)!</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>All home made!</strong>&nbsp;</p> <p>And of course, a hot coffee, cold drinks, frosty&nbsp;beer, tea and herbal tea, and hot chocolate for when the weather is chilly.</p> <p>The menu will evolve from season to season, so visit often (or follow me on <strong>Facebook </strong>or <strong>Instagram</strong>) to see what&#39;s new.</p> <p>The <em><strong>Red Hot Vintage Food Truck</strong></em> is a unique idea, warm, clean, and welcoming with a happy ambiance, especially when I slip out of my kitchen whites and disguise myself as the <strong>perfect 1950s hostess</strong>:</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>Oops... that&#39;s Tina Louise.&nbsp; But as soon as I get my make-up on, I&#39;ll post a photo!</p> <p>Clients will find this little camper converted into a professional kitchen, in line with European norms, giving the distinct impression of having travelled back in time to the age of Rockabilly, drive-ins and moderate inflation rates.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<p>So what goes into a project like this?&nbsp; Your donation will start the ball rolling on equipping the interior of the truck with<strong> three vital pieces of equipment</strong>:</p> <p><strong>A 90cm gas grill:</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>Professional hood (150cm):</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>A counter-top gas fryer:</strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong><em>Kiss Kiss Bank Bank also receives 8% of all funds raised on its site, in this case: 240 euros</em></strong></p> <p>My little lady currently looks like this inside:</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>But with a little <strong>love, time, energy and help</strong>, she&#39;s going to resemble this:</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>Shiny! Tada! Magic!</p> <p>No, of course, NOT magic.&nbsp; Crowdfunding, a&nbsp;bank loan, personal investment, and lots of hard work.</p> <p>Any funds raised that <strong>surpass my goal </strong>will go towards expenses related to training and permits, and the eventual repainting of the exterior of the camper, or possibly investing in a vinyl full-cover wrap for the exterior.</p> <p>And here&#39;s where you come in!&nbsp; With your help, the interior of the caravan will be <strong>well-equipped and up and running</strong>, and to thank you for your donations, check out the goodies you will earn for your generosity!&nbsp;</p> <p>Plus, giving just feels <em>good</em>.&nbsp;</p> <p>In order to donate, a simple <strong>secured registration </strong>on this page is required.&nbsp;</p> <p>You can also easily log in using your <strong>Facebook </strong>account, and US and UK residents are able to donate by <strong>PayPal</strong>.</p> <p>If you are not comfortable with online transactions but would<strong> still like to help</strong>, contact me directly.</p> <p>If my <strong>goal of 3000 euros</strong> (appx 3300 USD)&nbsp;is not raised in the&nbsp;next&nbsp;<strong>30 days</strong>, you will be completely refunded by the Kiss Kiss Bank Bank site.&nbsp; It&#39;s a<strong> win-win</strong>!</p> <p>Thank you so much for your friendship, your support, your ideas and your interest in this project as it has developed.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>

Now things are getting serious... tonight, it's your own private party! You bring the guests, I'll bring the atmosphere: caravane at your place* (or one that is convenient... and legal), burgers and fries served up hot, drinks served up cold, and a special-order dessert. Fine dining under the stars to a Rockabilly soundtrack... pompadour, anyone?
