Jessica Chastain Buys Her Mom a Vegan Food Truck
Maybe it was an early birthday present?
Jessica Chastain appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show on Monday, where she wished her mom a happy birthday and talked about buying her mom, vegan chef Jerri Hastey, a food truck.
Joked the host: “So she can just drive around her restaurant anywhere she wants to go.”
As a photo of Hastey peeking out of the truck’s service window, glass of wine in hand and a welcoming smile on her face appeared on the backdrop screen, Chastain was quick to clarify that, the Santa Rosa, Calif. based-mobile vegan kitchen does not, in fact, serve wine.
“The funny thing is, that [photo] was on her Facebook page and she was so excited about the food truck, and I went and looked on her Facebook page and was like, ‘mom, you don’t understand the idea of a truck and wine. You cannot be sitting in the driver’s seat with a glass of wine hanging out the window!” said Chastain.
The actress – who posted the photo on her Instagram – was also quick to point out that the truck was indeed parked at the time.
As for the menu items, Chastain said, “the last time I was here I talked about her chia pudding and that will be on the truck.”
Other tasty brunch, entree and dessert options include a sloppy seed burger, sweet potato corn tacos, pancakes and strawberry shortcake.
