2013 Favorite Food Truck Menu Item Contest
Mobile Cuisine is pleased to announce a new contest for the readers of our site. This contest will be used to determine what food truck menu items are their favorites.
As many of you may already know, Richard Myrick; the editor-in-chief of Mobile Cuisine is also the author of Running a Food Truck for Dummies. Last year he was contracted to write a second book relating to the the mobile food industry. Unfortunately due to timing issues this contract was cancelled.
Since that time he has been planning to continue this project on his own and now is the time we are asking for your help on this book. This book will not center around the operations of a food truck, but more about the cuisine that mobile food vendors are creating from their rolling bistros.
This food truck cookbook will be a recipe/cookbook that shares the best of the mobile food industry with the world. From appetizers to deserts, every food imaginable that is sold from food trucks will be covered in this tome.
Last year’s winner was What the Fork from Scranton PA and their Sriracha Taco.
The cuisines and style of meal items covered in the book will be:
- Egg Dishes
- Waffles and Doughnuts
- Appetizers and Sides
- American (this includes North and South American cuisine)
- Cookies and Cupcakes
- Other Desserts
The winners of each of the of cuisine types will have the opportunity to have their recipes published and featured in the upcoming book. Submissions can be vegan,vegetarian or packed full of meat.
Please note that each of these vendors will have the option to not have their recipes published…that will be their choice.
To be eligible, the menu item must come from a food truck, food cart or trailer. The vendor can be located in any country from around the world but must have been open since September of 2013. This contest will be run in two parts, the first will be suggestions from the readers. The initial submission portion of this contest begins today and will run through Friday, October 18 at 12PM CT.
Fill out the contact form below or send in your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know:
- The name of the truck and their location.
- The menu item name and what type of cuisine or meal type it is.
Food truck owners can submit themselves and anyone can submit a vote for multiple food trucks or multiple menu items, just make sure your submission is clear or we will not be able to count your submission as a vote.
The top submissions will be part of the top 5 from each area which will be opened for voting on Monday, October 21st.
