Last Friday Visit Stillwater got a behind the scenes taste of a Sicilian jewel soon to sauce up the foot truck culture. The Saucee Sicilian is the newest food truck flavor coming to Stillwater and around the state. Priscilla Jones has been cooking and baking recipes that run deep in her family. Jones’ grandmother came to America by boat from Sicily in 1911 and has passed on her culinary legacy for generations. Jones has an endearing Sicilian nickname, Nonna Sicilia which you will see embroidered on her apron along with photos of her grandmother hanging in the truck to honor her inspiration.
Jones is now sharing her grandmother’s passion for food by perfecting her recipes and equipping a truly unique food truck with a one-of-a-kind brick oven. The Saucee Sicilian has mastered the art of pizza and pasta with the freshest ingredients prepared daily. Named after cities in Sicily, their pizzas are topped with everything from caramelized onions and basil to mushrooms and soppressata, a dry Italian salami.
Not only is the cuisine a Sicilian experience, their food truck has an old world feel all its own. Hand painted and adorned with salvaged metal from OSU’s poultry barns, the rustic details and Sicilian inspired artwork are as charming as they are inviting. A stainless steel bar, etched to resemble wood planking, folds out under an awning and flat screen outfitted with DIRECTV for the ultimate outdoor dining experience.
The Saucee Sicilian is looking to open next week and will have a regular Stillwater route through the week. They also will be available for catering special events. You can stay in the Saucee Sicilian know on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
