Spring is finally here. Let’s do this! We are The Saucy Italian NY. 

Oh-So-Good Food Tasting

The Saucy Italian NY crew–Santino, Annette, and Johnny at Sysco for a food tasting. We met with Chef Tony and our consultant, Daniel,  to taste-test various ingredients and brainstorm on some creative food truck-friendly ideas.


We started out with a fresh salad with lightly blanched beets (soooo good), apple slices, walnuts, feta cheese, and raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Um….yeah! That was tasty.


Fried ravioli, lightly coated with fresh parmigiana cheese, served over marinara. Not bad, but not amazing. However, we also tried homemade ravioli. This particular ravioli comes from an Italian woman and her small family-run operation. She hand-makes each and every ravioli, and it shows. Each puffy ravioli is filled with only the best fillings. This is not your typical ravioli that deflates after you drop it in boiling water, only to disappoint. These are filled correctly and thoughtfully. Each delicate pillow filled with things like high-quality cheeses—or sweet peas—or mushrooms. No, not the kind of mushrooms you dump out of a can. I can assure you. This was quite the hit, and I’ll be sure to feature it on occasion.


We tried burgers too. Oh, and these were not your ordinary burgers. They’re more like “steak” burgers, but very juicy, tender, naturally flavorful, and oh so good. They are made with special fine mixes of meat, like chuck, brisket, and port house.  I know….it’s not even fair! We’ll be sure to feature these burgers on occasion as well.


Cool Graphics for The Saucy Italian NY

The creative process of our graphics for The Saucy Italian NY concession trailer

Johnny is the most talented and creative person I know. He always finds a way to bring any ideas I have to life. I really can’t wrap my head around all that he’s capable of. Yes, my short German Architect hubby from Wisconsin can accomplish a whole lot with that brilliant and creative noggin of his.

So, when I said, “We need some graphic art for our concession trailer”, he replied, “Ok, whatcha’ got in mind?” I proceeded to tell him that I want it to show some kind of representation of me since I actually AM The Saucy Italian NY. But I didn’t want a plain old photograph. He suggested a cartoon version of me. “Yes!!! That’s awesome”, I said.  I went on to describe all the whimsical ideas I had in my mind.

Johnny took a photograph of my face and off he went! Sketching, erasing, sketching, erasing, and finishing up with, coloring and shadowing. Here’s the final product. I hope you like it as much as I do.




Fuhgetaboudit  is our food truck twist on the meatball hero. Our meatballs are homemade, and once you’ve had amazing homemade meatballs, you’ll never settle for less again.  You know those frozen meatballs you see in the freezer aisle? Yeah…we don’t shop down that aisle. We make the good stuff for you because we appreciate the good stuff, and so will you. Don’t let the dark crisp grilled look on the outside fool you. Our meatballs remain tender.  They’re browned on the outside for extra flavor, and then cooked slowly so that the inside is fully cooked through, yet tender.


We then make rosemary (garlic) panini bread. We use sourdough bread, buttered, topped with organic garlic powder and crushed rosemary. They’re panini pressed, leaving them crisp and buttery. The bottom pieces soak up the sauce making a flavor packed bite with a softer chew, and the top pieces remain crunchy.


This dish is topped with homemade marinara sauce. It’s all in the sauce, baby, and our sauce delivers. We lightly top this dish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Our Fuhgetaboudit fully delivers, whether it’s lunch time or dinner time. Frozen processed meatballs? Fuhgetaboudit!

Food Truck or Traditional Caterer

When planning your event, consider this…

  • Food trucks are perfect for outdoor events in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
  • Food trucks are perfect for indoor events year ’round.
  • Unlike “sit-down” catered events, food trucks are a great way to get your guests to mingle and socialize if they so choose. Some can come up to the truck, while others mingle for a bit. It’s a more casual, less regimented way to serve your guests food in an interesting way.
  • Food is cooked fresh on site.
  • Food trucks give your guests a far greater variety of food to pick from compared to a single plated meal from a standard catering company.
  • No hassle cleanup. 
  • Food trucks are a more interesting  and visually appealing alternative to buffet style service.
