Good food is the common ground shared by all of us, and immigration is fundamental to good food. In nineteen thoughtful and engaging essays and stories, "You and I eat the same" explores the ways in which cooking and eating connect us across cultural and political borders, making the case that we should think about cuisine as a collective human effort in which we all benefit from the movement of people, ingredients, and ideas.

Did this book get such amazing reviews because everyone is obsessively in love with Rene Redzepi? This book is like a special issue of The New Yorker, with all the cool kids writing their favorite foodie stories and memories and, well, lists. It's actually not as good as a special issue of The New Yorker because there is no Jane Meyer, no John McPhee, nobody except the famous, beautiful, extremely nice Danish guy who writes something you've probably read already at least a few times.

I guess I was expecting more. It's full of food stories, some of them really tender and personal, some of them the required pull-yourself-up-from-your-boostraps-through-cooking stories, some of them about really exceptional people and their struggles and their genius. But most of them are kind of just nice stories to pass the time while waiting for your doctor's appointment, to be honest.
