I just was tuned into awesome news: Skillet ’s Josh Henderson is teaming up with local publishing house Sasquatch Books to pen a cooking tome.

Details are on the DL, but here’s what I do know: The book is slated for late spring of 2012. It will include recipes for food you’d find at the Skillet trailer and at his (also awesome news) forthcoming diner—retro, Americana stuff with a French flair. That diner is expected to open in early spring of 2011 on Capitol Hill.

This is the first publishing project for Henderson, whose roving airstream trailer revolutionized Seattle street food when it hit the pavement in 2007. His gourmet treatment of comfort food classics—poutine, burgers, lasagna—forced us to rethink the brick-and-mortar model, proving an always-on-the-move truck can sling mighty fine fare. That story alone packs book cred.

More details should surface in coming weeks, so make sure to stay tuned and check back for updates.
