Diners, Drive-ins and Dives on Apple BooksWe have complicated feelings about Guy Fieri around here. Of course we find his enthusiasm to be grating we are human , his hair to be ridiculous and his fratty portmanteau-heavy slang is frequently the bane of our existence. Where things get tricky is that we actually have a ton of respect for the original motivation behind his now ubiquitous show " Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. As you guys probably already know, we have a special love for and commitment to American regional foods here at HuffPost Taste. Our editors are all from opposite corners of the country, and we all have our own regional favorites to rave about. We live in a huge country and celebrating everyone's food is an important job that we admire.

Food Network star Guy Fieri takes you on a tour of America's most colorful diners, drive-ins, and dives in this tie-in to his enormously popular television show, complete with recipes, photos, and memorabilia. Packed with Guy's iconic personality, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives follows his hot-rod trips around the country, mapping out the best places most of us have never heard of. The iron-stomached Fieri, restaurant owner and Food Network personality, has probably choked down more burgers, bacon, pancakes, hash browns and fried eggs than any person should have to, and this dense, photo-packed retrospective allows viewers to replicate many of his favorite restaurants' recipes at home. Like the show, Fieri takes diners on a tour of the country's best local eateries, like Kansas City favorite YJ's Snack Bar, which uses two electric burners and a sidewalk grill to crank out exotic fare from around the world; James Beard Award-winning Al's Breakfast in Minneapolis; and all culinary points in between. The book contains a fair number of predictable classics like coconut cream pie, macaroni and cheese, meatloaf and burgers including one that's dipped in batter and deep-fried , but has an equal number of interesting riffs such as Cap'n Crunch French Toast, Nut N' Honey Pancakes, Pork and Sweet Potato Empanadas and Chicken Fried Lamb Chops.
