Are You a Dog Person?

Last week on 4th of July, I briefed you on the history of the all-American hot dog. Delving even deeper, Bruce Kraig and Patty Carroll go on a gustatory adventure in their book, Man Bites Dog, to explore how the hot dog became the American icon it is today. Man Bites Dog goes over the differences between a Seattle and a Chicago-style frank, and lists some of the best hot dog stands in the country. Bringing the dog into our own hands, Bruce and Patty also offer their favorite hot dog recipes, from the classic frank to a Korean barbecue-flavored hot dog with kimchi.  If you love yourself a good, meaty dog, Man Bites Dog by Bruce Kraig and Patty Carroll is a must-have! Find it online and in stores for $40.
