Dylan

6 February, 2012: If you've been to the DWY truck you may know Dylan. She's a little camera shy, I had to take a few photos before snapping one with part of her face in it. Dylan makes the soup each day (a super important job that involves a lot of chopping, sauteing, blending, and tasting). She bikes in from… Read More

Dewey in the rain

14 January, 2012: S Sometimes when it rains, the truck feels more like a ship. Yesterday the wind was so powerful that the truck was swaying as if it were on waves.

Cider donuts at DWY tomorrow afternoon

12 January, 2012: Do these look familiar? I made apple cider donuts with Rolando at HSQ while our truck was closed for the holidays and thought I should share them with the folks near South Station.

Beating Lemongrass

2 April, 2011: If you’re wondering why the knife is upside down, don’t feel bad. This is something I saw one morning while pouring someone’s coffee.  I’m sure I accidentally poured hot water onto the counter looking over. Matt is beating some lemongrass with the dull edge of his chef’s knife. Apparently, this is how you treat lemongrass. I’d never… Read More

Driving the Trucks

31 March, 2011: This is Mary. It's my first post. I run the DWY truck. This is the form you have to fill out when you apply for your learner’s permit in Massachusetts. A few weeks ago I mustered up the courage to make the trip to the RMV. When the holiday break came around there was some confusion about exactly… Read More
