Food Truck Road Trip Reading a good cookbook is like a food journey. Each recipe is a culinary experience that can transport you to a different place and the process of cooking can connect you with cooks from all over the globe. For bloggers Kim Pham and Philip Shen, of the award-winning – named Best Culinary Travel Blog by Saveur magazine – and food writer Terri Phillips, their love of food has literally taken them on a journey—a journey across the United States as they try out famous food trucks in various cities and have documented their meals along the way. The result is their new book, Food Truck Road Trip—A Cookbook [Page Street Publishing, November 2014, $21.99]

Part cookbook, part photography book, and part history book, Food Truck Road Trip—A Cookbook has it all. The chapters cover all the food truck favorites, from soup and sandwiches, to American comfort food, to Latin American, Asian and fusion foods from all corners of the Earth—plus drinks, sides, desserts, and snacks. And every recipe is accompanied by gorgeous photographs taken by the authors, both trained photographers, as well as the history of the food truck, its owner, and the story behind the spectacular food.
