Austin food truck entrepreneur Eric Silverstein appeared on LIVE with Kelly & Michael this morning, helping the perky hostess prepare the Peached Tortilla's signature barbecue brisket taco. Now his future is in the hands of online voters.
After all ten contestants have appeared on the show, the four trucks with the most votes will be invited back to New York City to appear in a final cook-off to be evaluated by a panel of judges. The wining truck will go home with $20,000 and everyone who votes online is automatically entered in a contest to win a $500 gift card from Omaha Steaks.
Sounds like a win-win situation to me. Just FYI, Peached Tortilla owner Eric Silverstein is responsible for the wonderful Trailer Food Tuesdays the end of every month on the Long Center Terrace. So show an Austin entrepreneur some love for giving back to the community and for representing our city's food scene so well on national television. Vote while you can!
