Pick Up a Copy of New York á La Cart at the 2013 Vendys

Boxty recipe testing shot
We're in the final countdown to this year's Vendy Awards. The big day is on Saturday. If you haven't bought your ticket yet, there are still some available and if you haven't bought your copy of our book New York á La Cart: Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple's Best Food Trucks--wait, you haven't bought a copy yet?--you can do so this weekend at the Vendys with the proceeds benefiting the Street Vendor Project! Inside you'll find recipes and stories from four of the five finalists for the 2013 Vendy Cup featured in our book. Learn how to make The Cinnamon Snail 's Blue Corn Pancakes with Pinenut Butter, chicken pupusas from El Olomega, shrimp rolls from Luke’s Lobster and boxty (aka awesome Irish potato pancakes seen above) from The Chipper Truck and much much more...

There are about 100 other recipes from vendors all around the city including many from past Vendy finalists and winners. Vegetarians and carnivores alike will find something tasty in the pages like zucchini pupusas from Solber Pupusas, black bean tamales from Tamales Guadalupe, dosas from NY Dosas, Greek Pork Chops and Lemon Potatoes from Uncle Gussy's Truck, Lamb with White Sauce from Kwik Meal, Chorizo Huaraches from The Country Boys. Got a sweet tooth? How about Coffee Ice Box Cake from The Treats Truck, The Salty Pimp Sundae from Big Gay Ice Cream, or Frozen Mint Juleps from Kelvin Slush? Gluten free? No problem, the GF recipes are labeled for your convenience.

Here's the drill. If you're at the Vendy's come on by the merch table. I'll be there selling copies of the book to benefit SVP until we run out. Want a hot tip on the best dishes to prepare for your own street food party or some recommendations for where to get started in the kitchen? I can help you with that. You can take home a, ahem, pretty sweet book and help raise more money to support the Street Vendor Project's mission. Sounds like a street food win/win to me. Get your tickets and I'll see you Saturday!
