On my recent trip to Austin, Texas, I met a slew of people (mostly women, all wonderful, all talented).
I attended the Country Living Magazine Fair which was held at the Travis County Exposition Center in their rodeo arena.
Cowboy chicks are so cool, and some are even cooler.
Enter, Tiffany Harelik, author of the Trailer Food Diaries Cookbook, Austin Edition (see link). Not only is her family history full-up with entrepreneurial spirit (not to mention a mobile food business or two) she was raised in Austin, which has the largest trailer food culture in the United States.
A “trailer food crawl”, with a group of girlfriends in 2009 (I’m pretty sure there were margaritas involved), was the inspiration for a collection of one of the most interesting cookbooks I’ve seen in a while.
Filled with very unique recipes (and even more inspirational personal stories) I can’t wait to try the Turkey and Brie Sandwich with Organic Fig Spread (Courtesy of La Boite) and the Hot ‘n’ Crunchy Chicken (Courtesy of The Mighty Cone).
Her tenacity in collecting these recipes in the, “pursuit of authenticity and happiness”, is appreciated.
