This past weekend, Roli Roti celebrated its 10 year anniversary with a pop-up party at Chez Panisse. The beloved gourmet rotisserie truck was in full effect, loaded up with glistening porchetta, juicy lemon and herb roast chickens, and a new addition, baskets of golden arancini, rotating at a hypnotic pace.
Amidst the music and enticing wafts of roasting raclette waiting to ooze over hearty slabs of bread, Thomas Odermatt, founder of Roli Roti, could be seen smiling ear to ear, greeting guests, personally handing out his famous porchetta sandwiches, and urging everyone to eat as much as possible.
The party was not only a celebration of Roli Roti, but of all the hardworking farmers, producers, supportive family and friends, and loyal fans that have made each of these ten years possible. This was a community celebration and everyone got involved.
