Divided into neighbourhood sections (Uptown, Midtown, Downtown, the Boroughs, etc.) New York a la Cart will spotlight the best of the Big Apple's cart cuisine, profiling 50 vendors and including their most popular recipes. There are terrific only in New York stories here: the IBM exec who quit his six-figure job to flip Belgian waffles, the banquet hall chef who followed his dreams from Bangladesh to 46th Street, the second generation souvlaki masters carrying on their family traditions, among many others. With full-colour photos that capture the local colour as well as the delicious food, New York a la Cart is a celebration of the food-cart scene , but most importantly, offers more than 60 recipes so that readers can make their favourite street food at home.
