(WTNH)– Chef /owner Jillian Moskites and owner Josh Moskites from the Whey Station show us how to make bacon marmalade.
They started out over three years ago and have spent years working in the specialty food and cheese industry. Jillian also has a culinary degree. They decided to do a food truck in lieu of a restaurant due to their growing family of 4 kids under 7.
The food truck will be at Roc race at Rentschler Field, all the shows at the Xfinity Theater in Hartford, Mohegan sun rooftop parties and shoreline wine festival at Bishops Orchard.
