Roli Roti is the country’s first and finest mobile rotisserie, serving only sustainably-farmed meats and organic produce at their seasonal best.
As a son of a Swiss ‘Metzgermeister’, or master butcher, Thomas Odermatt grew up in his family’s butcher shop in the Swiss Alps. This humble little shop is where Thomas learned his family's secrets of succulent, tender rotisserie.
From his father, Otto, he learned the importance of using the right cuts for the right purpose, and of choosing only select, free range meats raised by trusted family farms. From his mother, Maria, he learned the family’s recipes for savory rotisserie, a specialty their shop prepared for customers on Saturdays. Though all the other butcher shops in the village offered rotisserie, only at Metzgerei Odermatt was there a line out the door and around the corner.
The rotisserie dinners Thomas prepared for friends were so wildly popular that he was inspired to fill this particular niche, by taking his family recipes on the road – indeed, to the streets. And the idea for Roli Roti, Gourmet Mobile Rotisserie was born.
Today, Thomas and his family are passionate about sharing their slow food values, family recipes, and delicious rotisserie at farmers’ markets across the Bay Area.
