Dynamic 4th generation Austinite and Trailer Food guru Tiffany Harelik offers a unique perspective on stories of food truck entrepreneurs and their recipes. With her Masters’ degree in Health Psychology, and a background in festival production, she has been engaged in a number of visionary projects including the Gypsy Picnic trailer food festival, Trailer Food Tuesdays and beyond.
Tiffany is inspired by her great-grandfather Haskell Harelik who came to the states as a Russian immigrant and opened a banana food-cart in the early 1900’s. His entrepreneurial endeavor with the food cart ultimately led to opening five general stores in central Texas. His and other similar stories are why Tiffany writes the Trailer Food Diaries. Her passion is promoting the American Dream, and those who are finding their happiness in the niche market of food trailers.
Joined by her best friend and food truck entrepreneur, Maurine Winkley, the girls put their aprons on to add jams and sauces to the Trailer Food Diaries collection in the fall of 2012.
