Video: a trailer for the new Fidel Gastro’s TV show, which debuts next week

Rebel Without a Kitchen is a new reality show that follows Toronto food trucker Fidel Gastro (a.k.a. Matt Basile) as he hustles between pop-ups, food markets and catering events—where, of course, he has to deal with the usual food TV kitchen dramas. The show premieres April 9 at 10 p.m. on Travel and Escape, only a week or so before Basile, busy guy that he is, launches his first brick-and-mortar restaurant, Lisa Marie.
