Eaten in your car so you wouldn’t have to share with your children? Gotten hungry while watching a dog food commercial? Does the presence of green vegetables make you angry?
If you answered yes to any of the following questions, you are pretty pathetic, but you are not alone. Feast along with America’s favorite food comedian, bestselling author, and male supermodel Jim Gaffigan as he digs into his specialty: stuffing his face. Food: A Love Story is an in-depth, thoroughly uninformed look at everything from health food to things that people actually enjoy eating.
Quotes from Food
I wouldn’t trust them skinnies with food advice.
I don’t know much about grammar, but I think kale salad is what they call a “double negative.
I’m convinced that anyone who doesn’t like Mexican food is a psychopath.
I treat my body like a temple. A temple of doom, but a temple nonetheless.
I for one can think of a thousand things that taste better than thin feels. Many of them are two-word phrases that end with cheese.
