Turnip Truck owner John Dyke has beefed up his team's culinary lineup with the hiring of Meg Giuffrida as director of food services. Giuffrida, who most recently worked at the Martha O'Bryan Center, has in the past run Bongo Java East's brunch operation and is the former proprietor of The Red Wagon café in East Nashville.
“I watched Meg grow The Red Wagon catering business into to a full-fledged neighborhood café utilizing the best fresh, local ingredients with a loyal following,” said Dyke. “In between, she provided all the carry-out food for The Turnip Truck Natural Market in East Nashville when we opened in 2001. It was then that I fell in love with her dedication to creating simple, delicious natural food.”
