I’m a big fan of the Grind Gourmet Bourget truck for several reasons not least of which is that they pay as much attention to making sure their vegetarian offerings are as good as their carnivorous offerings so I’m really delighted that Liz agreed to participate in this series.
Liz Solheim Huot owns Grind Gourmet Burger Truck in Louisville, KY with her husband, Jesse. She loves traveling, dining, social media, marketing and any place in Louisville that serves food past midnight.
When Michelle asked me to write something about one thing I love in Louisville I had no idea it would be so difficult. There are lots of things I like and even lots of things I love, but one of my favorites? I considered choosing a broad concept and had a few people suggest I write about our outstandingly loyal and dedicated customers at Grind, the gourmet burger truck my husband Jesse and I own but it seemed too trite and insincere. Then I wanted to write about how many events and entertainment the city offers. That too seemed broad and overdone. I only decided three days before my post was due that I wanted to be specific. I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know about something I felt strongly about. Thusly I present to you my love letter to The Waverly pizza at Coal’s Artisan Pizza. I’m totally serious. This pizza with its salty prosciutto, gorgonzola cheese, fig jam and balsamic reduction is a force to be reckoned with. It’s sweet and tart and salty all at the same time and with an amazing amount of balance and restraint. This isn’t the kind of pizza you eat when you want to overdose on cheese, this is the pizza you eat with a nice beverage and keep to yourself because you’re too busy eating to talk. Because I’m the kind of person that when I decide I like something I will eat it until I never want it again (*cough* edamame hummus *cough*) I only order it occasionally so I don’t burn myself out. Dramatic? Yes. True? Definitely.
