Happy to say that YOU AND I EAT THE SAME is out in the world, the first book in a series spearheaded by Chris Ying and Rene Redzepi. Through multiple voices and approaches, the book makes a layered argument about how food connects us and affects us, no matter where we’re from. My contribution is the essay “Fried Chicken is Common Ground,” which Eater previewed in full for the book’s release. The collection and my essay received kind shout-outs from Bon Appetit and the New Yorker.
