From The Hold Shelf (Or What I'm About To Read)...


"Food Truck Road Trip" by Kim Pham & Philip Shen
Kim, Phil and Terri traveled from state to state, visiting the best food trucks out there to get the incredible and authentic recipes that make their trucks some of the most popular in the country. This book includes delicious recipes for everything from sandwiches, soups and chilies to vegetarian dishes, classics with a twist and desserts--all straight from the cooks themselves. With the country's food truck favorites made accessible in your own kitchen, you'll deliver incredible and unique food at home you'd have to travel across the country to try.   

Outstanding dishes include Prosciutto and Grape Pizza from The Urban Oven in Los Angeles, Maker's Mark Fried Chicken from Big D's Grub Truck in New York, Santa Fe Black Bean Burgers from Mix'd Up Food Truck in Atlanta and Pad Thai Tacos from The Peached Tortilla in Austin.   

To get these recipes, the authors found and traveled to the most vibrant food truck cultures across the country, including: Southern and Northern California; New York City; Portland, Oregon; New Orleans; Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte, North Carolina; Atlanta; Minneapolis; Austin; Washington, D.C and Philadelphia.   

This cookbook includes all the recipes of your wandering road trip dreams.

"The Doodle Revolution: Unlock the Power to Think Differently" by Sunni Brown
A fearless guide to awakening your mind using simple visual language. What do Einstein, Edison, Richard Feynman, Henry Ford, and JFK have in common? Like virtually all heavy-hitting thinkers, they looked beyond just words and numbers to get intellectual and creative insights. They actively applied a deceptively simple tool to think both smarter and faster: the doodle. And so can the rest of us-zero artistic talent required. Visual thinking expert Sunni Brown has created The Doodle Revolution as a kick-starter guide for igniting and applying simple visual language to any challenge. The instinctive and universal act of doodling need only be unleashed in order to innovate, solve problems, and elevate cognitive performance instantly.

The last two books I mentioned were "The Banh Mi Handbook: Recipes for Crazy-Delicious Vietnamese Sandwiches" by Andrea Nguyen and "Banh Mi: 75 Banh Mi Recipes for Authentic and Delicious Vietnamese Sandwiches" by Jacqueline Pham and I really enjoyed both of them. I got some excellent ideas for making my own banh mis at home and my friend's really liked them when I made them.
