The Grateful Gourmet is all about peace, love and good food.

Wow, just Wow! I have had really good food from food trucks at Hawk Haven (the best winery in Cape May), bur the Grateful Gourmet was out of this world.At first glance the menu items look deceptively simple, but there are levels of flavor with each dish.My hat is off to these chefs (and they are chefs). My conclusion, try everything, and I am.not kidding.

This was the most delicious food we ever had! Fantastic! Your talent is amazing! Food prep is one of the most difficult arts and you mastered it with perfection! Everyone was amazed! We only spoke about food all night lol You were my star of the show! Everyone asked who are you and where you are from! My parents sent special thanks from them as they were amazed by the dishes! We are so grateful for your work! It was really special. It is very hard to find someone like you! Thank you so much!

Delicious food that meets all of your party needs, The Grateful Gourmet offers a wide variety
of culinary selections, customized according to your tastes, dietary needs and type of event.

The Grateful Gourmet is perfect for creating memorable private parties and events,
I am available with or without the Food Truck.

Reach out to inquire about specialty pricing for corporate events, birthdays, baby and bridal showers, wedding and anniversary celebrations and employee appreciation events, corporate catered lunches.
Click on the button below to schedule your consult with Desi. We even do wedding food and wine tastings.

The food truck is generally booked out a few months in advance. So be sure to secure your event.
A non-refundable deposit is required for food truck or catering events.

Remaining balance is due the day of the event. We have an 18% gratuity charge on all events and additional charges apply for events outside of 25 mile radius. Most events generally run two hours
but we are happy to accommodate your event.

There is an hourly charge for the food truck.

Local taxes apply.

We provide all plates, utensils, napkins and condiments on food truck.
We use eco-sustainable paper products only.

We arrive 60 minutes prior to the event with the food truck and take 30-45 minutes to breakdown.

The food truck needs a flat spot to park, and it's helpful to have enough space for the pickup truck that hauls it, however we can easily move the pickup out of the way as needed. We are generally capable of plugging into any electrical outlet, however we do bring our own quiet generator for self-sufficiency.
