  • The Truck Food Cookbook We Are Talking About.

Five-time James Beard Award nominee John T. Edge has just released The Truck Food Cookbook, a 304-page, glossy, full-color tour of major US metropolitan food carts. Portland, naturally, features prominently among the listings, with profiles of—and dishes from—11 local carts. Household names Whiffies, Potato Champion, Grilled Cheese Grill, and KOI Fusion jostle for attention along with Swamp Shack, Moxie RX, and others.

The book has 150 highly approachable recipes from carts in Austin, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and more. With a gratifying ratio of food-porn-to-useful-information, it's a well-balanced product that can provide many simple meals, as well as many good long sits of page-turning. There is even, in select passages, pontification upon the food cart phenomenon.

Edge is presenting his book at Bunk Bar, May 22, 6-8pm. No-host bar and food will of course be available, as well as the book, so rsvp to and then join the 390 other cart owners who didn't make the cut.
