“Food trucks first rolled onto the scene in the US around the time of the last global financial crisis,” Christina added.

“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.”

In Around the World in 80 Food Trucks some of the world’s most creative food truck chefs share their recipes to make at home.

The dishes cover everything from classics and family recipes to fusion concoctions inspired by travel experiences.
