  • Interesting piece by local food writer Victoria Pesce Elliott in the Miami Herald a couple of days ago about food trucks finally reaching Miami in a big way. You'll find them in locations including South Beach, downtown, the Design District, Biscayne Boulevard, with updates via Web and Twitter. Top contenders include Gastropod (www.gastropodmiami.com, international bistro fare) and Latin Burger (www.latinburger.com) - gourmet tacos, latinized burgers/fries). About time!

    It is great example of drawing together a few themes (cycling, international events, cookery, tourism) to create a saleable product which she has published as an ebook and as hard copy. Maybe I need to do something like it for regional French wines.
