Three Things I Learned from Jim Gaffigan’s Food: A Love Story
Crown Archetype, $26.00, ISBN 978-0-8041-4041-6, 2014
1. If you read only one chapter, read the one on Hot Pockets. Comedian Gaffigan is known for these jokes for a reason. HOT POCKETS!
2. He covered his eating adventures all over the country, but his food journal of Chicago was sadly limited to a page about his love for our deep dish. This city alone could fill his next book on food.
3. His closing chapter “Final Meals” will have you skipping dinner and going straight to dessert. After all, life is short.
Have you read this book? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Please comment below!
