Food: A Love Story

Hamburgers, cake, Hot Pockets, french fries, and bacon are just some of the things comedian Jim Gaffigan writes about in his new hilarious book, Food: A Love Story. The story is about how Jim travels around the country eating.  He also has the tendency to over exaggerate the way the food looks, tastes and feels.  Also, he explains how his eating habits get in the way of not only his marriage but also how it affects his kids growing up. He has a funny way of saying things, for example, “What are my qualifications to write this book? None really. So why should you read it? Here’s why: I’m a little fat. If a thin guy were to write about a love of food and eating I’d highly recommend that you do not read his book.”  Jim doesn’t only tell priceless stories, but he will also teach you a thing or two.


For those people out there who love comedy and food, this is the perfect book for you.  However, I will warn you this is a challenging read, and in some parts it might be a little hard to follow but overall it’s a great book.  He is so detailed in his writing, it makes it seem like you are there looking at and even tasting the food.  For those who absolutely love this book, I would highly recommend the New York Times Best Selling; Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan.  After you read this book, you might just learn the answer to the old-age question “which animal is more delicious: the pig, the cow, or the bacon cheeseburger?”
