Bite Notes

  • Jim Gaffigan would approve of The Famous Original Genuinely Not Ray’s Sandwich Extravaganza, which is also the perfect sandwich to eat while driving.
  • Another pairing for Jim Gaffigan’s Food is the L. A. Dirty Dog. The recipe can be found in Roy Choi’s L. A. Son. 
  • According to Claire Messud, one of the writers contributing to Eat Joy, Mrs. Hemmings’s Chocolate Brownies have helped her “through exams, loneliness, even despair.” They are just the thing for a cold pandemic night.
