Format: Paperback
A perfect go-to gift for both locals and out of town friends. In addition to all the great recipes, inspiring stories about each of the passionate entrepreneurs makes it a fun and delicious read. You could shelve it with your other cookbooks, but it's perfect on the coffee table with great pictures and an easy layout to browse. Sure the packaging is wonderfully cute, but there is something deeper within, an uplfiting undercurrent about Americans thriving during a depressed economy. Austin is leading the way in the food trailer movement, and this book captures the spirit of self-starters who are experts at what they do best.

I hear there might be cookbooks on the line for other cities, can't wait to see what's next.

I enjoy supporting young entrepreneurs and new talent. Tiffany Harelik has popularized and captured the essence of our unique local Austin, Texas food vendors. I was delighted to be a contributing photographer for her Cookbook and to get an up close and personal session of the recipes I photographed. No assignment was complete without smelling and tasting a delicious sampling. I haven't visited all the trailers, but Trey's is a favorite on South Lamar.
Bon Appetit

The thing I enjoyed most about this book was it took me on a tour of all the street food places I wanted to try. Since I live in Austin, I have the choice to cook these recipes at home or run down the street and see how the chefs do it themselves. This is a great gift for anyone needing something from Austin.

This book is great - I'm typically not a cookbook person, but I love this one and have already given copies to several friends. It really captures a side of Austin that many may not know exists, but is one of the defining features of the city, and a perfect sampling of the mix of cultures and styles that make up Austin. The recipes are easy to follow and it helps that there's some amazing food photography used throughout.. Definitely worth picking up, it makes me want to try making (and eating) everything in there, as well as visit the trailers themselves!

Love this book...I no longer live in Austin, but this book definitely captures the unique flavors of my beloved Austin. I was literally drooling over every page.
