Food Trucks: Dispatches and Recipes from the Best Kitchens on Wheelsby Heather Shouse
Synopses & Reviews
An illustrated guide to the new epicurean breed of food trucks, featuring profiles and recipes plus photographs from 50 of the hottest vendors in the country, from Los Angeles’s Kogi to New York’s Rickshaw Dumpling Bar.
With meals on wheels garnering as much attention as high-end restaurants, eaters across the country are flocking to mobile vendors to score Korean barbecue tacos, crispy Belgian fries with rosemary-truffle ketchup, garlicky Hawaiian shrimp, and even curried frog legs. Favoring dynamic dishes over pomp, veteran food writer Heather Shouse takes readers on an exploration of our national street cuisine, presenting an insider’s look at the best mobilized meals in the United States—revealing the true gems of this burgeoning movement along with their coveted secret recipes—accompanied by full-color photographs of her journey into the newest frontier in American cooking.
"With food-truck fever sweeping the nation, intrepid journalist Heather Shouse launched a coast-to-coast exploration of street food. In Food Trucks, she gives readers a page-by-page compass for finding the best movable feasts in America."--Amazon.com.
