Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: An All-American Road Trip . . . with Recipes! by Guy Fieri, 256 pages, read by Angie, on 06/27/2012

I love Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and thought I would check out this book to see if it had some of the recipes I have heard on the show. The book takes us throughout the country to place Fieri has visited on the show. The intros to each location are typical Guy Fieri and really remind me of the show. He does give us a lot of background and reminds us about what makes the place special. I really enjoyed the pictures and the guy asides. I didn’t try any of the recipes and some of them are definitely ones I would never make. There seemed to be a lot of recipes for coleslaw for example. Why? I am sure the restaurants got to submit whatever recipes they wanted but they often weren’t even the ones they are famous for. This is a fun book to peruse but reading it cover to cover isn’t really necessary.
