Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan

Goodreads Summary

Have you ever finished a meal that tasted horrible but not noticed until the last bite?

Eaten in your car so you wouldn’t have to share with your children? Gotten hungry while watching a dog food commercial? Does the presence of green vegetables make you angry?

If you answered yes to any of the following questions, you are pretty pathetic, but you are not alone. Feast along with America’s favorite food comedian, bestselling author, and male supermodel Jim Gaffigan as he digs into his specialty: stuffing his face. Food: A Love Story is an in-depth, thoroughly uninformed look at everything from health food to things that people actually enjoy eating.

 My Thoughts

If you like listening to Jim Gaffigan’s stand up comedy, you will love this book!  He loves food and he loves to talk about food!  In this book, he talks about food he likes, food he doesn’t like, and some of his favorite restaurants.

He is so funny!  He talks about being overweight and that he won’t take restaurant or food advice from skinny people because they aren’t passionate enough about food to overdo it!  Jim also said that he doesn’t call himself a foodie; instead, he says he’s an “eatie.”  Hahaha!

Food: A Love Story is a very funny book that made me laugh out loud quite often!  It is definitely a book that I will be recommending.  Actually, I already recommended it to my son and he’s reading it now!  However, I do feel that I need to put a warning out there…. Do not read this book if you are on a diet!  All of the talk about doughnuts, pizza, burgers, and all the other deliciousness will ruin your diet!

*Note: I received a copy of this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review.
