Rolling up on the mobile food scene are two newcomers: Fork and Dim Sum Charlie’s, adding to Wine Country’s evolving food truck convoy.
Fork, run by caterer Sarah Piccolo out of Sebastopol, embraces the local farm-to-table vibe, serving up Stornetta beef burgers on whole wheat buns; a quinoa garbanzo bean burger, green chili mac and cheese, and salads bursting with veggies plucked from local patches.
The converted Mother’s cookie truck has been outfitted with a impressive kitchen and espresso set-up. You can find Sarah and her truck at a variety of public and private events (she recently was at the Handcar Regatta), including stints at the Occidental Farmer’s market and Dutton-Goldfield winery, though she prefers to stay within 90 miles of her home turf in Sebastopol.

(UPDATE: Dim Sum Charlies says Sonoma is “in the works”). In Napa, the buzz is about Dim Sum Charlie’s — a converted airstream serving up dumplings and dim sum near the Oxbow market. The truck’s still in it’s early stages, officially opening in early October, but already the lines are long. Dim Sum Charlie’s is open Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30pm until around midnight. On Friday and Saturday they’re open from 11:30am to 1:30am and Sunday from 11:30am to 10pm.
