Food: A Love Story
"Bacon!" ~ pg. 113
Stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan writes Food: A Love Story with his thoughts of all things culinary.
Food: A Love Story has over 12,000+ positive ratings. I had high expectations when I first added this book to my TBR over a year ago. April was the perfect month to read this book outside of my comfort zone. As sarcastic as I am, there are not many satirical novels in my library.
Was it worth the read? Sure. As the title states, it really is a love story about food. What's not to like about that? But toward the end, I started to lose interest. Enough already about bacon, Cinnabons, Hot Pockets, coconut water and kale. I am sure Gaffigan's love story about food translates better in a stand-up comedy routine.
