Book You Must Buy: New York a la Cart


Let's take a few moments to discuss the next book you're going to buy, New York a la Cart: Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple's Best Food Trucks. I'm not just telling you that you must buy it because there's a pun in the title, or because I love New York City, or because the book is written by my bloggy BFFs Blondie & Brownie. Or because one of the authors, Alexandra Penfold, is now my literary agent. Although, technically, all of things are true.
But truthfully, the reason I am telling you to buy the book now is that there is practically a metric ton worth of dessert recipes nestled in its delectable pages! And better yet, sweet stories from cart owners and tasty pictures to accompany the recipes. It's truly a delightful book, and a love letter to New York City street food culture. Even if you've never been to New York City, it's a fantastic piece of sweet armchair travel.
Here are some of the sweets that you'll see featured in the book:

The Treats Truck: Spiced Zucchini Cake, Coffee Ice Box Cake

Dessert Truck: Brioche Doughnuts, Goat Cheesecake with Rosemary Caramel Tuille

Miss Softee: Make Your Mark Coffee Cake Ice Cream Sundae, Apple Crumble Pie

Coolhaus: Dirty Mint Ice Cream sandwiches with Double Chocolate Cookies, Browned Butter Bacon Ice Cream Sandwiches with Butterscotch Potato Chip Cookies

Otto Gelato: Banana Tartufo

Big Gay Ice Cream: Salty Pimp Sundae, Wooly's Ice Strawberry Ice, Green Tea Ice, Sea Salt Leche Syrup

Wafels & Dinges: Brussels Waffles Belgian Chocolate Sauce

Van Leeuwen:  Ice Cream base with variations

Om nom nom! Go buy the book now: New York a la Cart: Recipes and Stories from the Big Apple's Best Food Trucks

This would be great to have, never been to New York so it would be great to find some new foods.
