Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver at TheCommentary.ca.
James Cunningham joins me now. The host Eat St. has a new companion book to the popular television series, which incidentally has just started its fourth season on Food Network Canada and the Cooking Channel. There are 125 recipes in this book from some of the best food vendors in the world, trucks we’ve seen on the show. They’re deliciously photographed, and from what I’ve read of the recipes rather easy to make. I’ll get Mr. Cunningham to tell us about the recipes in this book, some of the best food he’s had here in Vancouver and beyond, and the popularity of the food truck phenomenon. Is it a fad? Is the food as good as that which you’d get at a more traditional restaurant? James Cunningham is the host and associate producer of Eat Street. He’s also a comedian and host that’s been featured on Last Comic Standing, Just for Laughs, and Comedy Now. Other than the television show, he is a busy speaker, performing comedy and corporate shows, and his award-winning youth financial literacy program, Funny Money. www.james-cunningham.com is the website for more. The book, published by Penguin is called Eat St. Recipes from the Tastiest, Messiest, and Most Irresistible Food Trucks. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, James Cunningham; Mr. Cunningham, good morning.
