Sponsored Post: The Ai Food Truck Stems Out by From Our Sponsor in View All Posts, October 17th, 2012
From Our Sponsor: The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes
The International Culinary Schools at The Art Institutes’ Ai Food Truck recently finished a month-long food truck tour across Southern California, visiting Art Institutes’ campuses in Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. Throughout the tour stops, The Art Institutes’ culinary students challenged local food truck heavyweights to no-holds-barred battles, taking three out of four challenges.
In addition to the on-site food truck competitions, Jesse Brockman, a 2009 graduate from The Art Institute of California (Orange County) with an Associate of Science in culinary arts and winner of season two of The Great Food Truck Race (from The Lime Truck), showed off his culinary chops with exciting food demonstrations. One dish in particular won over attendees in each market.
To eliminate waste and capitalize on some extra zest, Jesse showed audiences how to whip up the delicious edamame hummus by utilizing the extra flavor from the stems of fresh green herbs or vegetables that are typically disposed of. It’s extremely easy to do at home.
On the Road: Clevelanders Know How to Eat by Catherine LeFebvre in View All Posts, September 25th, 2012
Cleveland’s a melting pot of various culinary traditions, and as the final three teams of The Great Food Truck Race cruised into town, so was the diversity of food the trucks dished out. Starting with a Truck Stop challenge of cooking with homegrown, ripe Ohio tomatoes, it was important that each team catered to their surroundings. The best example of this was Pop-A-Waffle taking advantage of their Truck Stop win: They catered to Cleveland’s large Polish population by offering a “Polish Boy,” which includes “kielbasa, French fries, coleslaw and hot sauce.”
For the next couple of weeks, we’re following the Food Trucks city by city with our guide of the best eats, compiled by the On the Road app and website. Today we’re exploring the best that Cleveland has to offer.
Michael Symon’s Lola just might be the crown jewel of Cleveland’s culinary scene. The menu gives diners a modern spin on their favorite dishes (smoked pork chop with chiles and cheesy polenta, anyone?), while always showcasing the best of what local purveyors are producing closeby.

Get the full list of winners here and check out our photos from the red carpet below.
Chiles Rellenos — The Weekender by Marisa McClellan in View All Posts, March 2nd, 2012
During my childhood years in Southern California, Mexican food was something we ate only at restaurants. Sure, we’d occasionally have burrito night at home, but there was nothing authentic or traditional about those overstuffed and rolled tortillas.
It wasn’t until I moved to Philadelphia and became friends with a woman who had lived in Mexico until the age of 14 that I discovered how truly approachable this cuisine was. Thanks to Angie, I learned to make authentic tamales and carne asada. She even shared her grandmother’s recipe for mole with me.
In recent days, it’s been harder to find a chance to get into the kitchen with Angie. She has twin toddlers and so keeping them out of trouble is her primary focus. Still, I want to keep nurturing my still-nascent Mexican cookery skills, so last weekend I went in search of a new recipe to try.
What I found was Melissa d’Arabian’s version of Chiles Rellenos. Though labor intensive, this dish was a huge winner in terms of flavor. It was just the thing for a lazy Sunday meal and The Weekender.
