Word of a mysterious cheese cart setting up in Union Square this Saturday afternoon has been circulating through the Twitterverse for the past 24 hours. We think we've unmasked the proprietor/perpetrator. An anonymous insider confirmed to SFoodie that it's none other than Olympic figure skating champion Brian Boitano, taping an upcoming episode of his Food Network series, What Would Brian Boitano Make?
It's unclear whether Boitano will be selling or giving away the various cheese-laden dishes he'll be making, and since the Union Square ice has melted
for the year, he won't be able to serve them with a 'Tano triple lutz. He'll also reportedly hit Precita Park the next day to sample street food from local vendors. We advise checking the SF Cart Project street food locator
that morning for details.
It seems a plan hatched last year may finally be coming to fruition. SFoodie editor John Birdsall reported in November
that Boitano and his Food Network casting friends had their eye on
tapping the S.F. street-cart scene for an upcoming episode. Look for
the cheese cart Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m.
