2014.6.26. Food Truck in Portland - a book talk

Thursday evening. I happened to be downtown for a short meetup. Decided to walk to Powell's afterwards. Steven Shomler of "Portland Food Cart Stories" and Tiffany Harelik of "Trailer Food Diaries Cookbook" talked about food truck owners and their stories tonight. Quite a few food truck owners were present. Shomler's son happened to sit next to me: a very amicable and courteous boy. During the course of today's talk, Roy and Kimmy Swope, owners of Retrolicious Food Cart, brought 4 courses of tasty creations: watermelon with balsamic vinegar and basil, pulled pork sandwich, crispy chicken on waffle, mini burger.
