Two culinary thought leaders of the industry will launch their book entitled, "STREET FOOD: Everything You Need to Know About Open-Air Stands, Carts, and Food Trucks Across the Globe" to provide insight to all foodies out there who would want to venture and learn about street food of over 75 countries around the world.

Editors Colleen Taylor Sen and Bruce Kraig have teamed up once again to create another read and feast for the eyes and mind of the world's famous and emerging street food. In 2013, the duo published "Street Food around the World: An Encyclopedia of Food and Culture" that captures various street food around the world from tacos to kebabs.

The new book is a must-have for any traveler who wants to experience his own culinary heaven with the help of the guides provided in the pages. Not only that, "Street Food" offers a recourse on the history and culture aspect of each street food in a country. The editors would like to show why China, India, and Mexico have the most street food hawkers, while those in England have only a few to none at all.

In an interview with Agate Publishing, Sen mentioned that it was her early visit in 1970 that made her love Indian street food. Likewise, Kraig started his love for street food when he was a small child in New York enjoying hot dogs and the likes. It was there when the culinary experts' interest for street food began.

The editors may have visited so many countries, but there's one spot each of them has maintained close to their hearts. To Sen, it has always been India, though she's been around Southeast Asia. At the same time, Kraig fell in love with Mexico's cuisine while revealing that China's food scene was also interesting.

Meanwhile, they both disclosed that politics played a significant role in the future of street food as some cities like Portland or Austin have policies that promote street food, while other regions have restrictive regulations that hinder the growth of the street food industry.

The book will be out on May 9 and will be sold at $24.95.
