So I have a confession to make...food excites me and looking at cookbooks gets my blood pumping. The problem is I love ALL food, if I look at a cookbook that features salads then I'm all over salads for a few days, at least until a cookbook about soup arrives at my door, then we're eating soup all week.
It's not that I'm fickle, it's just that a cookbook to me is like a novel is to others, I find a really exciting chapter (or in my case recipe) and I just need to know how it's going to turn out!
Well today a doozie arrived! It's called Eat St. And it features recipes from one of my favorite food groups-trucks! Food Trucks to be exact. Now I know it may sound pedestrian but these trucks have come a long way and they offer a glimpse into food cultures that we may not otherwise get to experience! Plus I'm just a sucker for "streat meat"
The recipes in this book all come from trucks that have been featured on the hugely popular series Eat St. that is now in its fourth season on the food network so if your a fan you may have drooled over one or two of these creations already.
My favorites;Tuna tataki Tacos (Taco de Paco in Baton Rouge),The Dogfather, a hotdog topped with chorizo,onions, mozza, and oregano (Dogfather Diner, London, England) and Notorious R.I.B ( Truck Norris in Cali, USA)
And don't miss the Mac and Cheese Cones with Bacon Bling ....what? )Gypsy Queen Cafe in Maryland)
The photography is bang on, the recipes indulgent, sometimes over the top and completely awesome....cook from it or just read through it, either way grab it up.
Oh...and to all you publishers out there...make the next one about salads again, I'm going to need it!
