The Food Truck

Award-winning chef Michael Van de Elzen attempts to create healthy, restaurant-quality alternatives to fast food from the back of a 1970 Bedford truck as he hits the road and tours New Zealand. Michael’s one man mission to offer a healthy variation to every fast food option knows no bounds. Whether it’s hot dogs, crisps, burgers or ice cream, Michael racks his brains to come up with a tasty, viable alternative. Michael's cooking experiments are all done in public with feedback from the locals playing a key role in deciding his menu. Some things he tries are outrageous, others simple, but all of them with one common goal; healthy takes on familiar classics, with just a sprinkle of restaurant fancy.
