Maybe our bodies or tastes are telling us something. Maybe they're showing us the way that we can learn from each other to everyone's benefit. Maybe our palates should lead the way on immigration policy--welcoming newcomers from around the globe will continue to enrich our culinary options. Weight Watchers beware!

Richard Maize | Posted 08.31.2016 | Business
Richard Maize

The street-food business, which includes food trucks, is a $1 billion industry that grew by 8.4% between 2007 and 2012. Between 2010 and 2015, the food truck sector of the business experienced an even higher growth rate of 9.3%. However, despite the sector's boom, investing in a food truck may not be for everyone.

I had been meaning to check out the Friday Food Truck show at the Progressive headquarters on Old Cutler in Miami for a while now, but I was always working and never got a chance to.

If you want to know New York, get to know its street cuisine. I learned it early. Growing up in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood, I would get a lunch of two hot dogs in steam-soft rolls from the guy who set up his stainless-steel pushcart on the corner of 17th Street every morning, rain or shine, Saturdays and holidays, summer-fall-winter-spring.
