New Sonoma County Food Truck Alert: We’re loving the croquette-concept from Croques and Toques.

Here’s how to get all the flavors of the holiday into one bite: A roasted turkey, gravy, cranberry and mashed potato croquette! If you’ve never had the pleasure of stuffing one of these little fried balls of happiness into your craw, croquettes are crunchy, golfball-sized bites that can be filled with pretty much anything from meat to sweets.

SRJC cooking school alum and chef Andrew Jetson is bringing the croquette to the masses with his new food truck, Croques and Toques. His self-funded venture features these savory holiday feast croquettes ($9 for 5), along with the sweeter spiced sweet potato croquettes (cream cheese and sweet potato mousse, $8).

“They’re kind of a blank canvas,” said Jetson. Which makes sense considering that nearly every culture has some version, from Italy’s arancini to aloo tikka in India.

These tasty croques are super kid-friendly (just keep in mind the innards can be molten hot, so blow on them a little), and a new favorite at local farm markets around the county. Watch for the truck at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Building farm market on Saturdays from 8:30 a.m to 1 p.m., or follow the truck at croquesandtoques.com.

  1. Today I tried the croquettes at the SR Veterans Building Farmers Market and loved it. The product is very tasty and the truck is one of the nicest I have ever seen. We are fortunate to have such a creative and delicious food item here in Santa Rosa. I will be back and look forward to see how this very cool product line evolves. The Chicken, Croque Monsieur and Apple are all excellent.

  2. What a creative idea! I heard he bought an old bread truck and customized it into this beautiful food truck. He did it all by himself with some help from his dad! How cool is that? It’s great to see a fine young man turn into an such an enterprising entrepreneur! I’ve got a feeling we’re going to be hearing a lot about him.

  3. It’s great to read articles like this. It shows that anyone can make something of themselves and I hope Andrew has great success.
