    One thought on “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives: The Funky Finds in Flavortown: America's Classic Joints and Killer Comfort Food

    1. I usually like my cookbooks to show color photos of each recipe made, but this is not your standard cookbook This is a compendium of many of the joints that Guy has visited on his show, Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, and features one recipe with occasional sides from each place The book is divided geographically, and then for each place, is the name, a box with address website to Track it Down , a brief description or history of the place, Krew Notes from his crew , and a restaurant update from t [...]


    2. This book looked like it was hastily thrown together Also, please spend the extra money on color pictures It goes a long way While on the subject of pictures, it would have been nice if they had included pictures of the recipes in the book There were a lot of images, but they were all screen captures from the different DDD episodes and terrible ones at that I appreciate the index in the back of all the various restaurants, but I would have like it to be arranged by state order, not alphabetical [...]


    3. Short reviews of DDD with adapted recipes Skimmed the book and read selected DDDs that interested me.


    4. The DDD fans will say I ve underrated it but I m actually feeling generous as I compose this I haven t read the previous volumes so there s a measure of novelty as I read this It gives recipes but it s not a cookbook at least it isn t a conventional cookbook With exceptions, each featured restaurant gets two pages of photo, description by Guy and comment from members of his krew along with a note from the restaurant s owner s This is followed by two pages with the recipe for a dish that was pres [...]


    5. Unfortunately access to the Internet makes much of this book obsolete and some of these places are no longer in business I m a big fan of D, D D and it kind of feels like this book wasn t put together that well and the paper it was printed on is cheap stuff The pics don t nearly do it any justice as well It s all a bit of a shame but I was thrilled to see one of my favorite places in it called Mama Cozza s which is where I had my wedding reception A good book to thumb through and keep on a coffe [...]


    6. Finally finished this book It started off good, then bogged down in the middle Just as I was getting ready to put it back on the shelf, it picked up This book only has about two two paragraphs from Guy about each joint Mostly made up of comments form the crew that shot the episodes Good people, but mixed vibes The first book was way better though I did make the Oatmeal Shake out of this one and it was good.


    7. I expected a whole heck of a lot out of this cookbook First, the recipes were good, but appeared like they could be difficult for the everyday cook to prepare Second, the book focused on telling the restaurant story than on the preparation of the food There wasn t even any pictures of the completed products I ended up walking away with a small handful of recipes I would prepare.





    8. I m not to sure what you can say about this It is predictable, simple and like the written version of the TV show.



    9. Great book that gave me great ideas for when I travel and what restaurants to look for when I on the road Great read.
