I heart food trucks.
I loved them in Philadelphia and now I love them in Boston. My mom and I have frequented the SoWa market twice now in Boston and both times enjoyed fare from the food trucks there. I love the diversity of the food as well as the craft associated with serving an amazing piece out of a TRUCK!
Come on, food trucks have always had good food but with the new foodie culture that has arisen in the last 10 years, they have become all the rage…to everyone!
Written by Kim Pham & Philip Shen with Terri Phillips, Food Truck Roadtrip – A Cookbook, contains over 100 recipes collected from the best food vendors around the country. Check out their website behindthefoodcarts.com for an inside look at the stories of these food vendors. Sparked by memories as a child and new adventures as an adult, Kim and Philip set out on a trip from coast to coast to speak to food vendors, the people behind the food trucks, and taste the fares that they were serving…and then share them with the world.
And so they did.
And we are lucky to be able to have a cookbook filled with these amazing recipes of which one I can share with you!
Tres Leche Cake with Coffee Sauce comes straight from my home city – Philadelphia. Taco Mondo owners Michael Sultan and Carolyn Nguyen craft up this buttery cake soaked in three types of milk (hence the name;) and topped with a homemade coffee syrup.
