Rick and Bubba's Big Honkin' Book of Grub

A book about food from two self proclaimed fat men, how can you go wrong?  With so many books out there about what you should and should not eat, it was refreshing to read from the perspective that food is not evil.  These two men do an excellent job of bringing to life the joy of eating.  They proclaim the goodness of so many social events that the majority of dieting Americans miss out on.  This is a definite invitation to change the way that you view food, but it is also a comical look at the things we do eat. 
There are a few recipes included, the biscuits were delicious and simple to make.  I would have liked to see more of their favorite recipes, but was pleased to discover their restaurant choices along with rules for determining a good restaurant and wait staff.
I was impressed to see my home state of South Carolina getting three of their food festivals into this short work.  I know my mom enjoys the Grits Festival in St. George and may have to plan a trip home to partake one of these years.  And the Hatch Festival has been on our personal to-do list for awhile.
This book was enjoyable, if you like food or if you want to like food but haven’t figured out how to yet.
