For those who live in and around Austin – and for the many who have visited – you are, more than likely, extremely aware of the huge importance of food trailers, food trucks and the overall “mobile cuisine” movement here in the Live Music Capital of the World.
Over the past few years, a great friend of mine, Tiffany Harelik, has established herself as the “Queen” of the trailer food craze here in ATX – and points beyond – with the creation of the “Trailer Food Diaries,” her involvement with the “Trailer Food Tuesdays” down at the Long Center for the Performing Arts and the publishing of two brilliant titles, “Trailer Food Diaries Cookbooks, Austin Edition, Volumes 1 & 2.”
With the recent release of Volume 2 of the Trailer Food Diaries Cookbooks, I am extremely excited to help Tiffany spread the word and extend her promotion of such a unique aspect to our great city’s culinary scene. Information about both cookbooks are listed below AND if you want to speak to the one and only, Tiffany Harelik, you can find her at BookPeople at 603 North Lamar TONIGHT – Wednesday, November 7th (also known as Tiffany’s birthday!) – for a book signing starting at 7pm. Don’t miss out!
Here’s the goods on the best little cookbooks in Texas!
