Food trucks carry on a tradition that began in the American West over a century ago. How to feed scores of hungry cowboys with nutritious food? The answer was reused US Army covered wagons lined with shelves and drawers, and multiple cooks who specialized in certain foods.
The Chicago Food Truck Fest will be held at US Cellular Field (White Sox Park), 333 West 35th Street in Chicago. For tickets and more information, go to www.chgofoodtruckfest.com.
