Street Food Eats

Street food is all about bringing people together to try new tastes. These four books explore the phenomenon – from San Francisco, where the hugely influential Mission Street Food changed the way the city dined, to the north of England, where Indian street food has made a tasty home for itself.

Mission Street Food

Mission Street Food

By Anthony Myint and Karen Leibowitz

Mission Street Food is a restaurant, a charity, a taco truck, a burger stand, and a clubhouse for inventive cooks tucked inside an unassuming Chinese take-out place in San Francisco. The book, with its step-by-step photography and sly commentary, is also the memoir of a madcap project that redefined a city’s food scene.

Mowgli Street Food

Mowgli Street Food

By Nisha Katona

The third book from Lancastrian barrister turned restaurateur homes in on dishes that are “all about the food that Indians actually eat,” be that at home in the UK or from street stalls in Indian cities. Dishes, such as Mowgli Chip Butty are unashamedly Anglo-Indian while Bhel Puri will transport you straight to Bombay.

Behind the Cookbook: My Street Food Kitchen

Food writer, author, and stylist Jennifer Joyce grew up in the US and has lived in the UK for 27 years. Her love of good food is matched by her sense of wanderlust, her curious palate, and her brilliant recipe-writing skills (Jennifer’s recipes really work). In My Street Food Kitchen, Jennifer explores the street-food scene in Mexico & South America, the Mediterranean, East and Southeast Asia, India, the Middle East, and the US, and delivers recipes that taste as good in your home kitchen as they do on your travels.
