Lonely Planet Food Travels Around the World in 80 Food Trucks

  • Written by Adam Bennett


Lonely Planet Food is serving up easy and tasty recipes from chefs on the road with its latest book, Around the World in 80 Food Trucks, published this March.

 

For Around the World in 80 Food Trucks, Lonely Planet Food has taken to the streets to source 80 fast, fresh and mouth-watering dishes — Japanese, Lebanese, Mexican, Peruvian, and more — from the most exciting culinary minds on four wheels.

 

Australia is represented by 12 food trucks: Açai Corner in PerthSydney’s Cantina Movil and VolkswurstClinto's Kupmurri and Little Wahaca on the Gold CoastMelbourne’s Greek Street FoodMr BurgerPasta FaceToasta and Yo IndiaLittle Bonnie Dot in Mullumbimby; and Adelaide’s Sneaky Pickle.

 

“In the past 10 years,” Commissioning Editor Christina Webb writes in her Introduction to the book, “the culinary landscape of cities all over the world has been transformed by a new kind of street food purveyor: the gourmet food truck.”

 

“Food trucks first rolled onto the scene in the US around the time of the last global financial crisis,” Christina observes. “It was an era when chefs were being laid off from traditional bricks-and-mortar restaurants, and, with no job but a lot of talent and ambition, decided to take matters into their own hands. Combined with a growing number of festivals and a trend for pop-up attractions, the market was ripe for entrepreneurial cooks to make their mark in nomadic kitchens.”

 

“Today food trucks can be found on city streets from London to La Paz,” Christina continues. “With their gourmet plates served at street prices – and with no booking or dress code required – they cater to foodies who are more interested in taste than the formal trappings of restaurant life. Fun, local and affordable, they are also an easy way for urbanites to sample delicacies from the other side of the world and for visitors to get involved in a city’s food scene.”

 

Around the World in 80 Food Trucks discovers how to cook a raft of crowd-pleasing dishes, from sea bass ceviche and Lebanese msakhan to old-fashioned American peach cake. It also introduces the chefs responsible, who share the stories behind their passion projects.

 

The book also includes recipes from food trucks in Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Colombia, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Ireland, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Spain, UK, Uruguay, and USA.
