New Jersey native Stacey Werner and her son, Evan Hess, have elevated sliders to a whole new level for hundreds of public and private events. From their popular The InSlider food trucks, they spread love in the form of sliders made with Kobe beef, marinated Jidori chicken and pulled Kurobuta pork, all crowned with fresh organics and scratch-made sauces. Vegetarians are nurtured with a balsamic-marinated portobello slider garnished with mushroom aioli. Artisan brioche buns seal the deal for these mini gourmet sandwiches, which can be ordered with truffle hand-cut fries or sweet potato tater tots.
Werner brings high-quality meals to the streets with a staff that includes culinary students and graduates. The InSlider appears throughout the week at various locations listed on the company’s web site, theinslidersd.com. It also caters weddings, birthday bashes, fundraisers and other occasions, always with a baker onboard. Private parties can request tailor-made dishes in addition to savories from the regular menu.
