Gourmet on the go

At the 2010 NRA show I noticed several vehicles very well equipped to transport food. In Chicago the only mobile food is ice cream so I did not see the need. However the mobile trend across the nation has not reached this little hamlet on the southwestern edge of Lake Michigan.

In the last couple of years, a gourmet food truck craze has swept cities from Los Angeles and Austin, Texas, to New York and Minneapolis. High-end chefs and talented amateurs have hopped in mobile kitchens to serve kimchi tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches and Latin-Asian chow to foodies who follow them on Twitter and line up in convivial droves.
