Christopher Watson has taken over the Santa Fe Trailer food cart from founders Lori Christianson and Andy Hartnett. Watson, who also cooks at Shelton's Bar and Grill in Cross Plains, trained in the cart with Christianson last fall and plans to keep the same menus and recipes in place. "Why change it? Everything's really yummy," says Watson.

Christianson has moved back to her home state of Arizona for family reasons, Watson explains, but flew back here in January to help him vend at the Cyclo-Cross National Championships in Verona.

Watson, who also has experience as a carpenter, is planning to do some renovations on the cart before the spring vending season starts in earnest, and hopes for a return to the Square around March 1.

Christianson and Hartnett had also been doing the cooking at Middleton's Branch Street Retreat. It's kept some of their recipes and is continuing the Friday fish fry.
