Food by Jim Gaffigan


You probably know stand up comedian for his most famous bit… “Hot Pocket!”.  Jim, is an eaty. Not a foodie… an eaty.  He believes he has a personal relationship with food. Fast foods from McDonalds, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, Subway, you name – Jim has probably ate it.  Kale?  Is not a food… bacon?  Is like crack.  Eating bacon also is like being murdered by your lover.  Yes, Jim loves food…. and in food, a love story… you will get plenty of that.


I absolutely loved Jim Gaffigan’s Food A Love Story.  He is honest with his food addiction.  He claims he is planning his next meal while eating.  The only time he is not eating is when he is sleeping.  I enjoyed Jim’s book Dad Is Fat, and I enjoyed Food.  I laughed many times while listening to this audio book.

If you are looking for a great listen, I highly recommend Food A Love Story.  Jim Gaffigan is an excellent speaker and his narration is spot on.
