New York a la Cart
Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple's Best Food Trucks
By (author) Siobhan Wallace By (author) Alexandra Penfold

Summary

Divided into neighborhood sections (Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, the Boroughs, etc.) New York a la Cart will spotlight the best of the Big Apple's cart cuisine, profiling 50 vendors and including their most popular recipes. There are terrific "only in New York" stories here: the IBM exec who quit his six-figure job to flip Belgian waffles, the banquet hall chef who followed his dreams from Bangladesh to 46th Street, the second generation souvlaki masters carrying on their family traditions, among many others. With full-color photos that capture the local color as well as the delicious food, New York a la Cart is a celebration of the food-cart scene — but most importantly, offers more than 60 recipes so that readers can make their favorite street food at home.

reviews

New York Daily News
“Popular bloggers “Blondie” and “Brownie” hit the road, literally, in this celebration of all things street food. Their thorough book details the rich history of the genre and features profiles of some of the city's favorite carts and trucks as well as the (sometimes eccentric) personalities behind them.”

SeriousEats.com
“A fun book and a good read for anyone interested in food trucks.”

Organically Cooked.com
“New York a la Cart is a must-read for those who love to hear the stories behind the food. It also contains so many enticing photos, and the recipes given are quick, easy and cheap to make.”

Bless Their Hearts Mom blog
“the recipes are great … If you know someone who left NYC and misses the food trucks, this would be a great 'souvenoir' book for them. If you have someone interested in the whole food truck scene, they would love this book as well.”
