Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan

***This is a Sponsored Book Review***

Jim Gaffigan is a comedian who loves to eat. Calling himself “an Eatie, not a Foodie” and having one of his most popular bits about Hot Pockets, Gaffigan teamed up with his wife again to write a second book, reflecting on his opinion and experiences with food.

The content regularly made me laugh aloud, and I enjoyed collecting quotes from its pages, i.e. “A taco that won’t force you to break your diet can’t be that great” (pg. 4).

Though the book was only published a year ago, some things about specific restaurants have changed: McDonald’s and its breakfast menu, and Subway’s business relationship with Jared Fogel.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys comedic writing. I consider this book to be a “light reading” book, that can be picked up and put down (though I doubt you would do that). Nothing heavy to bog you down.

    Totally adding this to my goodreads app for my holiday reading, especially if it’s funny because let me tell you I need a good funny read when the in-laws are driving me bananas!

      It has some funny parts that you may want to read aloud to get everyone laughing. My husband claims I read half the book aloud when sharing bits with him. He’s reading it next.
