Every food truck in Columbus has a story. Jim Pashovich, godfather of the local scene, honors his Macedonian heritage with his fleet of Pitabilities trucks. After working as a New York City line cook, Catie Randazzo returned to Columbus to open Challah! and wow the hometown crowd with her reimagined Jewish comfort food. Chef Tony Layne of Por'Ketta serves up rotisserie-style porcine fare in his tin-roofed truck. Established favorites like Paddy Wagon and Explorers Club pair with the city's best nightlife venues and breweries to extend their offerings at permanent pop-up kitchens. With insider interviews and over thirty recipes, food authors Tiffany Harelik and Renee Casteel Cook chew their way through the thriving food truck scene of Columbus.
