Episode 677: Do We All Eat the Same?

February 7, 2020
Listen: Do We All Eat the Same?

We are examining the truth around the idea that everyone essentially eats the same. Chris Ying, co-founder of Lucky Peach and editor of the aptly named You and I Eat the Same, talks about the real truth behind that statement. San Francisco Chronicle food critic Soleil Ho take us to a mountain village in Japan for an annual wasp eating festival (they are delicious, by the way). Food historian Bee Wilson, author of The Way We Eat Now, answers the question, what has happened to lunch? And America’s Test Kitchen takes us to a legendary burger joint that forces everyone to eat the same.
