A Gourmet kitchen on wheels
Chef Nicky has a gourmet kitchen that is second to none- on wheels. I realize that being at a race track is not an affiliation that you would closely associate with fine dining. However, this story may interest you.

Racing is an all day event over the course of four days. Team members do not have a chance to leave and get a nutritious meal. Team Jegs has hired Nicky Morse as a full-time chef to solve that problem. Nicky Morse is from London, Ohio. He cooks lunch and dinner for anywhere between 20-30 people and travels around the country with the team from February to November Among other things, he has worked for a four star restaurant in Columbus, Ohio, he has cooked on the set of different shows on Country Music Television (CMT). He specializes in French and Italian-style cooking and all of food is prepared at the track in the JEG’S customized industrial-equipped kitchen.
