Overview

Street food has redefined the landscape of American restaurants, and Skillet Street Food is considered to be one of the top gourmet food trucks in the nation. Armed with a shiny Airstream trailer and a devoted lunch crowd, it has helped turn the food truck trend into a lasting movement. Raising the bar from tacos and hot dogs to truly gourmet bistro fare, such as poutine and deconstructed corned beef hash, chef Josh Henderson has created an empire out of his simple dream: to feed people delicious and satisfying food on the street when they need it. The Skillet Cookbook features favorite recipes from the four main courses prepared every day in the city: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Filled with stories and recipes, Henderson reveals everything from how to make the legendary Skillet burger to the business of running a street-food truck.

Sarah Jurado's gorgeous, intimate photographs capture a journalistic glimpse in the day—and the life—of Skillet, from the process of making the food to the grainy contrast of the urban backdrop.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"From its mobile Airstream trailer to its new brick-and-mortar home, Skillet serves up comfort-food hits (burgers and waffles and bacon jam, oh my!), which chef Josh Henderson now shares in this collection of recipes. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert are all on the menu, including the sweet cinnamon brioche French toast, the savory crab cake po’boy with lemon aioli and the sinful Skillet poutine."
Seattle Magazine

"...filled with favorite recipes from both truck and diner, and beautiful photos by Sarah Jurado. Henderson also weaves in his take on food safety laws, food quality in general, and the story of launching his high-end food truck in the days before everyone was obsessed with high-end food trucks. My biggest surprise as I flipped through the pages was how much thought and preparation go into these recipes, since the end result never feels overly complicated." 
Seattle Metropolitan's Nosh Pit blog

"This isn't just hot dogs and bistro fare: it comes from a chef who has created an empire out of his dream to feed people satisfying food on the street when they need it, and packs recipes with photos, stories, and truck classics. From Cauliflower Scramble to Roasted Duck Legs, this is packed with easy dishes anyone can do from home, and is a top pick for any looking to produce gourmet fare in a small kitchen space."
