Tony Parker and his personal chef, Cliff Chetwood, are teaming up to bring classic French cuisine to the streets of San Antonio with a food truck.

Hungry Spurs fans can order croque-monsuier, crêpe, steak frites and other Gallic treats from the Crème de la Crème truck when it begins operation on March 18, according to

Parker announced the new venture with praise for Chetwood’s cooking.

“Chef Cliff has been feeding my family and me fantastic food for nearly five years,” Parker said. “This food truck is an opportunity to share a part of my French heritage with the people of San Antonio through Chef Cliff’s culinary creations.”

The menu planning will give the Spurs star something to keep his mind occupied while he waits to recover from a toe injury that kept him out of the team’s 116–91 win over the Timberwolves on Tuesday night.
