Our first book comes out Nov. 4, 2014.
Pre-Order: Food Truck Road Trip: A Cookbook


Hello! We are KIM+PHIL. Behind the Food Carts is a personal project born out of our love for food. We frequent food carts and trucks often and wanted to tell stories not just on the amazing dishes people are producing from these mobile kitchens, but the passionate people behind the scenes who make it happen. Our blog started in 2011 in Portland, OR and we are now located in the Bay Area of California featuring San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles food carts and trucks. We have over 200,000 followers on Tumblr and won Saveur Magazine’s Best Culinary Travel Blog in 2013The BTFC team is completed by our writer Terri Phillips.

Our first book, Food Truck Road Trip: a Cookbook published by Page Street Publishing (distributed by MacMillan) will be released Nov. 4 2014. We completed a cross-country road trip that was funded on Kickstarter to take pics for our book.

Contact us if you’d like to be featured or if you are in need of Food Photography services. Thanks for reading our blog! Check out KP Two for more of our work.
