Former Sydney FC footballer Pedj Bojic will tantalise the tastebuds of Hills locals with his ice-cream treats at this year’s Park Feast.
Bojic’s food truck concept, Pimp My Chimney, takes a hollow ‘chimney’ of pastry (known as kürtőskalács in Hungarian or trdelník in Czech) filled with ice-cream and ‘pimped’ with toppings of your choice.
“Desserts are one of my passions and when I stumbled across the chimney in Europe I just knew I had to bring it back to Australia for everyone else to enjoy,” he said.
“We’ve brought all the equipment over from Europe and we’ve spent a lot of time to get that combination of crunch on the outside and fluffy dough on the inside.”
Fillings come with quirky names such as ‘looney tunes’ and ‘caramel on the rocks’, with a vampire caricature as its quirky mascot.
“The signature chimney would probably have to be the naughty nuts; which is Nutella flavoured with hazelnut and vanilla ice-cream topped with brownies,” Bojic said.
“We are so excited to share our concept with everyone and we can’t wait for people to get pimped with us!”

Park Feast, part of The Hills Council’s Summer Series line-up, is a free event and will be held at Bella Vista Farm on November 18 and 19.
With more than 20 food trucks and dessert stations, attendees can enjoy a variety of food offerings from around the state as well as live entertainment and amusement park rides.
The Hills mayor Dr Michelle Byrne said supporting The Hills’ emerging food truck culture was a great way to keep residents closer to their homes, boost the local economy and showcase what the area has to offer.
“The Hills is such a wonderfully diverse place and free festivals like this give us the opportunity to showcase why it’s one of the most sought after places to live, work and play,” Dr Byrne said.
“I encourage everyone to get down to Bella Vista Farm, try some new foods, kick-back and really enjoy the family-friendly atmosphere.”
Event organiser Elena Saadie said the festival would appeal to people of all ages.
“Park Feast promises to be a wonderful event with something for the entire family to enjoy,” Mrs Saadie said.
“Families are sure to be wowed by all the live acts and amusement rides, and with a wide range of food trucks on site, there will be plenty of options for lunch and dinner.”
