Jacksonville Food TrucksJacksonville Food Trucks: Stories & Recipes from the Road
By Nancy White

Chronicling the stories of Jacksonville’s food trucks, the city’s latest food trend, Nancy White’s book gives food lovers the chance to get to know their local food vendors. Nancy takes a first-person point of view while she travels from truck to truck and samples their dishes.

The book begins with the story of how Jax Truckies came about. The origin, struggle and success makes for a heartwarming account of what hard work can accomplish. Those integral to the process are mentioned and commended on their contributions. Jacksonville Food Trucks continues to tell the stories of the food vendors associated with Jax Truckies.

What sets this book apart from other food books is how the author puts readers right into the culture and scene of the food trucks. Her connection with the truck owners translates well on paper. Foodies will enjoy the vibrant pictures and recipes included in Jacksonville Food Trucks from trucks like Corner Taco, On the Fly and South in Your
Mouth.

For readers and foodies interested in Jacksonville culture and cuisine, grab this book and a GPS for a tasty adventure.
