Summary, etc.: Stand-up comedian Jim Gaffigan has made his career rhapsodizing over the most treasured dishes of the American diet and decrying the worst offenders. Here he gives his thoughts on all things culinary, including why he believes coconut water was invented to get people to stop drinking coconut water and why pretzel bread is #3 on his most important inventions of humankind.
