We love getting free Columbus food-oriented stuff in the mail, and what’s this? – we just received an advance copy of The Columbus Food Truck Cookbook, by Renee Casteel Cook & Tiffany Harelik.
This clear labor of love features a cool cover, great photography, and recipes from many of our favorite trucks. It also features a sizable Q&A style interview on local food truck matters with yours truly, not to mention notable food truck observers such as Jim Ellison and Nick Dekker.
We look forward to trying out some of the recipes in the book – Bethia has her eyes on Ajumama’s “D’duk ‘n’ Cheese” – and expect to report back on how it went.
One last thought – if you’re thinking about opening a food truck, we implore you to absorb the back 10 pages of this book. It features indispensable hard earned wisdom from some of the most successful food truck operators out there. It’s good, smart stuff that’ll go a long way towards easing the learning curve.
