So Long, Noble Pig; Hello, Local Grind

Sarah Moran and Luke Stone, owner and chef, respectively, of Cloud 9 Catering, have formed a sister company.

It's called Vermont Feed Company and is the parent organization for the pair's mobile eateries.

Late last year, I reported that their Noble Pig hot dog cart might have to change its name. Indeed, a cease-and-desist letter from Noble Pig Winery in Oregon has forced the cart to adopt a new moniker, the Local Grind, making a collector's item of the snazzy shirt Stone is sporting above.

When warm weather hits, look for the cart to once again make its rounds, selling locavore hot dogs on warm cemita buns.

But fans of Stone's food don't have to wait until summer for a taste. The couple's other mobile eatery, the Hindquarter, a 1964 fire engine that had a few nameless soft openings before the holidays, will officially open for business next month. Its newly minted name comes courtesy of a Champlain College marketing class.

"This little red wagon is available for late-night weddings, parties and festivals, in addition to weekday vending," says Cloud 9 general manager Lindsey Campbell in a press release. Look for treats such as hand-crafted banh mi, ramen bowls and bacon.

Is it February yet?
