A bevy of food trucks converged on Seward last week when the Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race (GFTR) shot footage for an upcoming episode to be set in Alaska.
Unable to furnish many details, a GFTR producer admitted that shooting was taking place around Alaska, and that the various trucks and crews had stopped in Homer before setting up in Seward.
The reality show, hosted by Tyler Florence, pits crews of between six and nine food trucks against each other in a race to cook, sell and adapt to different challenges in a competition for $50,000. Each week a truck is eliminated, and the winner is the last truck standing at the end of a season.
Among the competitors in Seward were the trucks, “Breakfast for Dinner,” with a few interesting takes on breakfast food, and “Some Like It Tot,” which offered tater tots smothered with various sauces and garnishes. Other trucks were set up as well, but may have been eliminated during their time in Seward.
The 2021 season of The Great Food Truck Race is set to launch in March of next year.
