It’s no secret that the culinary landscape has slowly been transformed by a different kind of street food purveyor… the gourmet food truck.
Found on city streets around the world, plates are served at street prices with no booking or dress code required. From travelling tacos to an ice cream sandwich, food trucks cater to foodies who are more interested in taste than the formal trappings of restaurant life (here, here!), and quite simply, they’re way more fun, local and affordable.
They’re also an irreplaceable part of the festival and market scene, and that’s where one Geelong local has found her place, boosting her foodie cred with a mobile snack station.
Enter, Splatters. Created by Jo, a seasoned festival-goer sick of facing a choice between lugging her own food to festivals and events, and settling for traditional food like burgers and deep-fried food, Splatters is the rolling eatery version of a cheese-lover’s mecca, creating fresh, indulgent and delicious cheese platters!
Providing a mix of sweet and savory elements and a variety of textures coming together, Splatter cheese platters (a splatterbox!) have a little something for everyone and are made on the day – meaning you can say goodbye to your portable coolers, and hello to a decadent platter of locally sourced and international cheeses.
Focusing on fresh, housemade, local, imported and season ingredients, Jo’s splatterboxes feature an array of divine cheeses accompanied by cured meats (think salami, kabana, prosciutto), season fruit and nuts, dip, a mixture of crackers, olives, dried fruits, vegetable crudites, and other yummies like chocolate dipped pretzels.
While we are under the spell of some very special Fromage, we also believe no one should have to miss out on the unparalleled pleasure of a good cheese board (or Splatterbox), including those going plant-based. Splatters (being the considerate folk they are) also offer gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options without compromising on quality and taste!
If you’re not that keen on sharing food with your pals or need to eat on the run, there’s also a range of nifty antipasto ‘Splattercups for one’ that are filled with perfect bite-size pieces.
If ever there was a line worth waiting in, it would be this one – and you’ll be able to this summer when Splatters hits the festival circuit.
Hot tip: we hear they’re heading to the Birregurra Festival in October!
You can also order a Splatterbox for your own events and occasions if you have a hankering for some cheesey goodess. Call 0419 621 358 or email Jo at email@example.com
