Food: A Love Story Read Online Free - “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.”
Bacon. McDonalds. Cinnabon. Hot Pockets. Kale. Stand-up comedian and author Jim Gaffigan has made his career rhapsodizing over the most treasured dishes of the American diet (“choking on bacon is like getting murdered by your lover”) and decrying the worst offenders (“kale is the early morning of foods”). Fans flocked to his New York Times bestselling book Dad is Fat to hear him riff on fatherhood but now, in his second book, he will give them what they really crave—hundreds of pages of his thoughts on all things culinary(ish). Insights such as: why he believes coconut water was invented to get people to stop drinking coconut water, why pretzel bread is #3 on his most important inventions of humankind (behind the wheel and the computer), and the answer to the age-old question “which animal is more delicious: the pig, the cow, or the bacon cheeseburger?”

"Mind you, I'm not criticizing the biscuits and gravy or the chicken and waffles. I find them delightful. I'm just saying if I lived down there I would be dead." (p.48)
"I remember when I was ten years old looking around at my small Indiana town that didn't even have a McDonald's and thinking, I'M...

RELEASE DATE TODAY 10/21 - YUMMY YUMMY!
As a person who enjoys Jim Gaffigan’s stand-up routine, I jumped at the chance to read Dad is Fat. Unfortunately (probably due to the fact that I’m raising my own brood of horrible offspring), that...

Maybe all Americans should just eat starving people from other nations"....
.......maybe it's just me, but I was dying-laughing silly when Jim Gaffigan spit out the sentence.
I had another thought: perhaps the hungry people should eat the obese Americans.
Go ahead ... Spank me.. I've a sick sense o...

If aliens studied Earth, they would come to the conclusion that the United States is somehow consuming food on behalf of other countries.
And so begins Comedian Jim Gaiffigan's Food: A Love Story. Actually, that's not how it begins. I just thought the quote sounded almost philosophical, plus I wan...

Warning: Do not read this book when you are hungry. The discussions of pizza, cheeseburgers, bacon, doughnuts, steak, and all kinds of yummy foods could break your diet.
Comedian Jim Gaffigan loves food and talks a lot about it in his standup routines, including his popular bit on Hot Pockets. Thi...

Thank you, Mr. Gaffigan, for my first book of 2016 - and a good way to start!
In spring of 2000, I went to The Late Show with David Letterman - the guests were Jackie Chan and up and coming (and little known) comedian Jim Gaffigan. I am excited that years later I can say that I was there to see so...

Food: A Love Story is another great book by comedian and actor Jim Gaffigan.
This is seriously a laugh-out-loud book. Some of this is repeated from his stand up, but I don't care.
Give me more Gaffigan, and spray cheese!

It is because I like Jim Gaffigan so much that I enjoyed this book so little. With his last book, Dad Is Fat , I put part of the blame on the topic (fathering five children), and some of the fact that I read (and did not listen to) the book. So, I thought I was being clever by listening to ...

I really wanted to like this. But I think Jim Gaffigan and I just feel just too differently about food for me to find much humor in this. I would never consider myself a foodie, but the foods we love/hate are completely opposite. So after the great introduction, which had me laughing out loud, th...
