The French Twist Debuts at Left Hand

It’s an exciting day for Louise this Saturday, she gets to head over to Left Hand Brewing in Longmont. It’s her first time there, but she’s not new to their tasty craft beers. Many of their perennial and annual beers pair great with what Louise is...

Eater Gives Louise and The Crew the Thumbs Up

Eater, Denver has given Louise the nod, and she couldn’t be happier. Jessie Levine included us in her article citing which food trucks you must follow this autumn. She even put a wonderful picture of Louise up as the featured image! Thanks, Jessie! Read the full...

5280 Gives Louise a Shout Out!

Ever since we opened the truck to the public back in June, we have been telling everyone that “you won’t find this kind of French fare, at this caliber and this price point, anywhere else in Boulder”. It seems our rantings are being recited by others...

The French Twist Gets the Zagat Blessing

By Lori DeBoer, Co-Owner The Zagat is the holy grail of food journalism, the golden ring on this restaurant merry-go-round, so we were thrilled, naturally, to get a nod from the Denver Zagat office from none other than long-time food writer Lori Midson.  She profiled...

The French Twist Featured in Denver Eater

By Lori DeBoer, Co-Owner Our traditional French cuisine is gaining some notice among Coloradans in the know.  Jessie Levine,  who writes for Eater Denver, gave us a shout out in an article that appeared online on September 23, 2015.  She noted that we were living our...

Jaipur Literature Festival a Success

By Lori DeBoer Michael and I were so excited to be invited to serve at The Jaipur Literature Festival.  Since I run The Boulder Writers’ Workshop, a private literary center, I knew all about the Jaipur.  It is one of the top festivals in the world and does an...

Louise Rocks The Sanita’s Anniversary Party

By Lori DeBoer, Co-Owner It’s hard to believe that the Sanita’s Brewing Company is only two years old.  This fixture of the Colorado craft beer scene not only has some bodacious beer, but has a pretty sweet patio.  We were happy to be introduced to the...

Louise’s New Look

By Lori DeBoer When we took the keys to Louise in March, she was in pretty bad shape, both inside and out. The blue vinyl was falling off her in so many places that she looked like she was molting. Several windows were broken, she had lots of dents and the bench that...

Louise Floors Us

By Lori DeBoer, Co-Owner Just when we thought we were putting the final touches on the truck,  Louise floored us.  Her little surprise has put The French Twist Food Truck’s grand opening behind schedule, although my husband Michael has pulled off a miracle in...

Skylights and Other Windows

by Lori DeBoer, Co-Owner Now that Louise is painted, the next step is putting in new windows.  The front window and side window were broken, so we had those replaced by Nico at Safelight Autoglass in Longmont.   The window in the slide was tricky so the manager said...

Painted Lady

By Lori DeBoer,  Co-Owner Looks aren’t everything, but first impressions count—especially for a food truck whose menu is fit for a wedding, anniversary, engagement party and other life events.  Since we are serving fine French food we wanted a fine French look for the...

Verde Guys Sealed the Deal

We want to give a shout out to the great guys that run Verde, especially K.C. Slager, T.J. Ingraham and Mike “Seth” Sethney. The Verde group purchased the original Cheese Louise truck and launched the business in 2011.  They went on to start the Verde...

Guess What We Found

Since 2011, Louise has been in service as the Cheese Louise truck, rolling around the Boulder and Denver area with a crew that served up tasty grilled cheese sandwiches, in more varieties than you can shake a stick at. The guys had a good run with her and it helped...

Stripping Louise

Join Chef Michael as he optimistically outlines his plan for Louise’s vinyl.  We’ll keep you posted on our progress with Louise as The French Twist Food Truck gets ready to roll. We hope to make our deadline of mid-April for hitting the streets around...

Happy Birthday to Us

Today is my 50th birthday.  Michael felt bad because he thought I was turning 49, but I’ll take it.  He’s younger than me and his birthday is 12 days before mine. (I’ll let that confuse you.)  We have been so busy working on getting The French Twist...

It’s a Girl!

Hi everyone, We have a truck and her name is Louise!  After months of planning and a few weeks of scouring Colorado, looking for the prefect truck, we found one right here in Boulder. We made the decision to purchase the Cheese Louise Truck from her owners, the folks...

A Business of Our Own

Michael has always wanted to open his own restaurant and that became even more clear to him this past couple of years, when he was dedicating himself to The Chautauqua Dining Hall, as first the banquet chef and then the sous chef. He loved what he was doing and the...

Chef Michael at the Farmer’s Market

If you think that you recognize Michael from someplace, you are right! Michael was asked, as part his work with Camp Culinary, to give cooking demos at the Boulder Farmer’s Market. He would select representative produce from the farmers and show folks the best...
