“OLE!” Rebel Without a Kitchen, the new television show following Fidel Gastro (Matt Basile), premieres tomorrow night at 10pm on the Travel+Escape channel. The 13 episode, half-hour series, follows Matt as he works on his temperamental food truck Priscilla, from collapsible card tables, gets ready to take on underground food markets, overnight bush parties, street corners and over-the-top private events.
The production covered everything from hosting pop-ups in different cities, the food truck phenomenon, and just growing the business as a food entrepreneur says Basile. Rebel Without A Kitchen was produced by General Purpose Pictures.
Evident by the series, Matt is continually on the go. Aside from Rebel, Matt is slated to open his new brick and mortar restaurant, Lisa Marie, at 638 Queen Street West later this month. He’s also giving back to the food community with a virtual workshop about hacking the food industry to build a food business from the ground up.
Rebel Without a Kitchen premieres April 9 at 10 p.m. on Travel and Escape.
