You know how we know summer is nearing? We get multiple e-mails a week from new food trucks! And MAN do they make us giddy for the months ahead. We will tell you more about them next week (hint: one truck’s concept is they sell all things in patty form)!
That also means that The Taste is near. Despite all the stupid politics around food trucks, we of course will be there to support our trucks! A group of us food truck freaks can visit the trucks and nosh together. Join us at 4:30pm on Thursday July 11; the music portion (Estelle and Robin Thicke) take the stage at 5:30. Comment below or tweet @foodtruckfreak if you plan to join!
For now, we want to share with you some great recipes the folks from Eat St. sent us to share in honor of their 4th season airing and new cookbook sittin’ pretty on shelves.
(BTW Eat St. airs on Mondays at 11:00pm and 11:30pm ET on Food Network Canada and on Tuesdays at 8:00pm ET on Cooking Channel. If you want a gazillion-ish more food truck recipes, you can get the full book Eat St.: Recipes from the Tastiest, Messiest, and Most Irresistible Food Trucks by James Cunningham at bookstores or online).
