ALBUQUERQUE, NM — As the popularity of food trucks climbs, some colleges have begun offering classes for future vendors.
Future chefs at Central New Mexico Community College are mixing, sauteing and plating their created dishes as part of a pilot program.
Just like the hit television show “Top Chef,” the students get certain ingredients and can make whatever they want. In the end, someone has to win.
For the class, the students prepare the food and run the truck. CNM created the class because the food truck industry has exploded across the country. In Albuquerque alone, there are more than 200 mobile food vendors.
CNM partners with the Street Food Institute for the food truck.
