From School bus to Brick & Mortar...
When Matt Trotter, Jeff Buser and crew opened Horseradish Food Truck in 2015, the goal was to simply add another dimension to Trotter's funky retail shop, Teak & Soxy. But after 2 seasons of serving up specialty sandwiches and salads out of the little school bus, Trotter was approached by one of his most frequent regulars, Alex Pearsall, about stepping out of the bus and into a building with a full-size kitchen. Pearsall, who has Summered in the Green Lake area since a child, had recently purchased a building in Princeton's Historic downtown where Trotter grew up and his businesses were located. The two let the idea simmer in the off-season and then in early 2017 realized their shared food philosophies and passion for entertaining would be a recipe for success. (Pearsall attended culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu and Trotter, a Visual Arts Grad, loves bringing creativity to the kitchen).
Demolition on the interior of the 1905 cream-city brick began in Spring of 2017 with build-out continuing through the Summer, while Horseradish Food Truck served a steady crowd of devoted foodies just half a block away. The project is scheduled to open for the 2018 season, when Horseradish Kitchen + Market will open its doors to reveal a specialty food market, full bar/cafe, an open-style kitchen and screened deck off the back with glass garage doors exposing the gorgeous natural beauty of the Fox River as the backdrop. The space will serve as the "base" for the food truck, which will be revamped over the winter to allow Horseradish to go on-location to events, weddings and other special gatherings. Horseradish Kitchen + Market will be open for lunch and retail and also serve as a venue for private events and "pop-up dinners" with guest chefs and more.
