The James Beard Award winner dives into the food truck scene with “recipes for all kinds of dishes you had no idea were tragically missing from your life” (Eater). It’s the best of street food: bold, delicious, surprising, over-the-top goodness to eat on the run. And the best part is now you can make it at home. Obsessively researched by food authority John T. Edge, The Truck Food Cookbook delivers 150 recipes from America’s best restaurants on wheels, from LA and New York to the truck food scenes in Portland, Austin, Minneapolis, and more. John T. Edge shares the recipes, special tips, and techniques. And what a menu-board: Tamarind-Glazed Fried Chicken Drummettes. Kalbi Beef Sliders. Porchetta. The lily-gilding Grilled Cheese Cheeseburger. A whole chapter’s worth of tacos—Mexican, Korean, Chinese fusion. Plus sweets, from Sweet Potato Cupcakes to an easy-to-make Cheater Soft-Serve Ice Cream. Hundreds of full-color photographs capture the lively street food gestalt and its hip and funky aesthetic, making this both an insider’s cookbook and a document of the hottest trend in American food. “Writing with his usual panache, John T. Edge gives us great insight into the ever exploding food truck scene. Ten pages in, I was licking my lips in anticipation of my next street taco, which I can now make at home using one of the many fine recipes in this book. Serious Eaters everywhere will devour Truck Food.” —Ed Levine, founder, Serious Eats “Despite their fleeting nature, these creations endure in a winning combination of graphic design, cross-cultural flair and writing on one of the staples of the urban food landscape.” —Kirkus Reviews

In today's world, a different generation of street food lovers is queuing up at food carts and food trucks like never seen before. But what they don't know is that food trucks are not new to the streets. Just as with many other trends, these are the latest version of part of a long-standing American and global culture. And yet the street food industry hasn't ever enjoyed such notoriety or publicity.Based on statistics from IBISWorld, a research firm in Los Angeles, the street food business including non-merchandized carts and mobile food trucks is a billion dollar industry that has experienced an 8.4% increase over the 5 years between 2007 and 2012. It is a very entrepreneurial approach with 78% of operators employing four or fewer employees. The actual number of these entities is difficult to compile, the entire mobile food industry is made of food carts, kiosks and food truck, which can be found in trains, bus stations, airports, malls resorts, conference centers, stadiums and as well as in other locations. Experts in the food industry claim that food truck businesses are on the increase, largely because of a slow-moving economy. More and more people are looking for relatively cheaper breakfasts and lunches. In addition, today's employees are often in a hurry, with more working time than lunch hours. Such contributing factors make the food truck concept better appealing than ever. From a business owner's standpoint, food trucks, trailers, carts, and kiosks have a much lower overhead than restaurants and they can be moved and relocated if one particular restaurant doesn't generate enough business. Instead of having to worry and contemplate about the location of your restaurant and the whole real estate adage which is "location, location and location" entrepreneurs can actually drive to different locations if business isn't great. For your customers, you provide them with the convenience of having their food favorite

Food today is over-corporatized and under-regulated. It is involved in many immoral, harmful, and illegal practices along production, distribution, and consumption systems. These problematic conditions have significant consequences on public health and well-being, nonhuman animals, and the environment, often simultaneously. In this insightful book, Gray and Hinch explore the phenomenon of food crime. Through discussions of food safety, food fraud, food insecurity, agricultural labour, livestock welfare, genetically modified foods, food sustainability, food waste, food policy, and food democracy, they problematize current food systems and criticize their underlying ideologies. Bringing together the best contemporary research in this area, they argue for the importance of thinking criminologically about food and propose radical solutions to the realities of unjust food systems.
