And the best part is now you can make it at home. Obsessively researched by food authority John T. Edge, The Truck Food Cookbook delivers 150 recipes from America's best restaurants on wheels, from LA and New York to the truck food scenes in Portland, Austin, Minneapolis, and more.John T. Edge shares the recipes, special tips, and techniques. And what a menu-board: Tamarind-Glazed Fried Chicken Drummettes. Kalbi Beef Sliders. Porchetta. The lily-gilding Grilled Cheese Cheeseburger. A whole chapter's worth of tacos—Mexican, Korean, Chinese fusion. Plus sweets, from Sweet Potato Cupcakes to an easy-to-make Cheater Soft-Serve Ice Cream. Hundreds of full-color photographs capture the lively street food gestalt and its hip and funky aesthetic, making this both an insider's cookbook and a document of the hottest trend in American food."Writing with his usual panache, John T. Edge gives us great insight into the ever exploding food truck scene. Ten pages in, I was licking my lips in anticipation of my next street taco, which I can now make at home using one of the many fine recipes in this book. Serious Eaters everywhere will devour Truck Food." —Ed Levine, founder, Serious Eats"Despite their fleeting nature, these creations endure in a winning combination of graphic design, cross-cultural flair and writing on one of the staples of the urban food landscape." —Kirkus Reviews
