Food Trucks: Dispatches and Recipes from the Best Kitchens on Wheels By Heather Shouse
What I liked about this book is the interesting food that is now being cooked and sold on food trucks in major cities across the United States. This book is a must have if you are travelling around and want to eat at these trucks. The book is divided into regions so it is easy to route your stops. The author does her best to name the trucks, provide some history and tell a bit about what they are serving. Whenever possible she gives locations, websites and Twitter information. I found it to be informative and interesting. I was amazed at the variety of foods offered and how "upscale" some of them are. What I didn't like about this book was that I was expecting more recipes.  If you are interested in the history of food trucks or are looking to visit one, (or more), this is an excellent book to get. However if you are looking for recipes to make at home you would probably be better off buy…
