Evan Funke, previously of Rustic Canyon, and soon to be of Bucato, will be driving a truck later this week, and the truck will be serving “authentic” porchetta. Not porchetta tacos, not porchetta poutine, not porchetta pita, simply porchetta. We’re also hoping there will be at least three shapes of pasta (out of the 300 to be launched at Bucato) available along side the porchetta. As of Friday, Angelenos will be able to choose between the neutered Chego truck, or Funke’s newly launched Bucato Truck, which shall roam between Venice and Downtown. How’s that for nebulous omnipresence? Better follow its twitter, then. [SI]

Next up, traveling Nutella pants!

Nutella has a truck, and it may be fueled by hazelnut oil. Or it just runs on diesel like the rest of the food trucks from the commissary. No one knows. What is known is a inflatable Nutella jar will be on hand for picture poses, kinda like the seasonal Santas at Macy’s, but with free samples. The Nutella Breakfast Tour’s schedule for the rest of the week as follows:

Thursday, December 6 | Santa Monica Ice Rink (5th St & Arizona Ave) | 11 A.M. – 4 P.M.

Friday, December 7, near LA City College 10 A.M. - 3 P.M.

Saturday, December 8, Paseo Colorado in Pasadena, 10 A.M. - 2:30 P.M.
