APOTHOCURIOUS LAUNCHES MOBILE FOOD KICKSTARTER INITIATIVE [San Fran]
“Hot Bike” revolutionizes the taco truck concept with a two-wheeled kitchen
San Francisco – February 2012- Rose “Slam” Johnson, a Bay Area chef, youth educator, queer activist and 2011 SF Bay Guardian “Hot Pink List” honoree, is combining her many talents to launch Hot Bike, the first fully-functional bike to house a mobile taco kitchen. Hot Bike seeks to bring locally sourced, handcrafted, bike-kitchen-cooked tacos to the mouths of hungry and on-the-go San Franciscans. As a Community Supported Culinary Adventure (CSCA), Hot Bike is seeking to raise $5,000 in a Kickstarter campaign between February 14th and March 15th.
“I was looking for the perfect vehicle in which to share the food I love,” Johnson says, “and I found two: the corn tortilla and the bicycle.” Hot Bike is a specially designed Yuba Mundo cargo bike that includes both ingredient-transportation and mobile heating surface modifications to serve as a kitchen.
