ABOUT THE BOOK

Lonely Planet Food’s Around the World in 80 Food Trucks

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 Perth; Sydney’s Cantina Movil and Volkswurst; Clinto’s Kupmurri and Little Wahaca on the Gold Coast; Melbourne’s Greek Street Food, Mr Burger, Pasta Face, Toasta and Yo India; Little 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.

 

Jackfruit and Blue Ginger

Asian favourites, made vegan by Sasha Gill

THE MODERN ASIAN VEGAN RECIPE BOOK

A modern way to dine: Jackfruit and Blue Ginger is more than a vegan recipe book, it is a true collection of Asian favourites with a vegan twist. Perfect for fans of books such as Plenty, Bosh!, and Eat Vegan.

Vibrant Asian flavours: When Sasha Gill turned vegan, she didn’t want to miss out on the vibrant flavours of her favourite Asian dishes; so she got to work ‘veganising’ them. Studying medicine in the UK, far from her childhood home in Singapore, Sasha is a student who understands what it is to be short on time and budget; most of her recipes don’t take long or demand expensive ingredients. Through constant experimenting, she started to create dishes just as delicious and satisfying as her street-stall favourites and family dinners; only using plants in place of meat and fish.

Sasha takes inspiration from the flavours of Asia. Enjoy her recipes for:

* Jackfruit biryani
* Cauliflower samosas
* Fluffy peanut pancakes
* Creamy spinach curry with crispy tofu
* Shiitake ramen
* Vegan ‘butter chicken’
* Sweet potato and onion pakoras
* Tofu pad thai
* and, Peking jackfruit pancakes
