The Nutella Truck Tour.
Just in case you didn’t know, Nutella is life. It really is an ambrosial ingredient that makes any type of dish that much more incredible. So if you are a Nutella connoisseur like me, mark your calendars because the Nutella Truck tour is underway.
The tour kicked off in Burlington, ON on June 16 and will be making its way to Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, and Québec City from June until September.
They have already started their road trip across the country and they’re adding a little joy to all of the people they meet on their way. They are serving up delicious Belgian waffles and tasty fruit cups with Nutella. Check out the dates to catch the truck and bring your family for mouth-tantalizing food, fun games and a chance to win prizes!
Try it at Home!
There is always a jar of Nutella in our home and our favorite ways to use it is for breakfast, brunch and brinner. Yep, that pretty much covers it. In celebration of the epic truck road trip, Canadian celebrity-chef Stefano Faita has teamed up with Nutella to create six mouth-watering new breakfast recipes that show how a little twist can take your mornings to a whole new level!
The recipe above is a unique take on latkes with carrot, apple and Nutella. I can only imagine the creaminess, delicious taste and texture. Plus, you cannot go wrong with the added protein and subtle acidity from the added cottage cheese. This would be ‘morning made’ status in my books.
Chef Stefano has created these recipes with family in mind. They’re exciting, fun and best of all– tasty! I know my kids aren’t usually excited for breakfast but, if there is Nutella in it, it ALWAYS results in a clean plate.
- Apple and Carrot Latkes with Nutella
- Tortilla Breakfast Cups with Nutella
- Blintzes with Pineapple, Yogurt and Nutella
- Chia Banana Strawberry Breakfast Jar with Nutella
- Ricotta and Fruit Crostini with Nutella
- Greek Yogurt with Homemade Granola and Nutella
You can see all of Chef Stefano’s recipes here but, be warned. You will most likely make them all!
Catch the Truck!
Is your mouth watering yet? I’d apologize but, I can’t help that Nutella induces that reaction. Plus, now you are armed with some new and taste bud tantalizing recipes from Chef Stefano.
Hopefully you can make it out and catch the Nutella Truck when it comes to your city! I know I will be trying to convince Hubby to make a trip up to Toronto for CNE, just so I can catch the truck. Cross your fingers for me, folks!
The Nutella Truck will be zipping in to six festivals across Canada this summer, including:
- Burlington Sound of Music Festival in Burlington, ON on June 16 – 19
- Festival d’été de Québec in Québec City, QC on July 7 – 10
- K-Days in Edmonton, AB on July 22 – 24
- Celebration of Light in Vancouver, BC on July 27 & 30
- Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver, BC on August 20, 21, 23 & 24
- Canadian National Exhibition (the CNE) in Toronto, ON on September 1– 5
Make sure you stop by one of the festivals for some fun and a complimentary Belgian waffle with Nutella or fresh fruit cup topped with Nutella. You’ll even have the chance to play Nutella Plinko for a chance to win wicked prizes.
Plus, bring your selfie stick or get a photo taken with a larger-than-life personalized jar of Nutella. This is what Nutella dreams are made of, people!
