MAD Mondays x Dispatches

To celebrate the release of our very first book publication, MAD Dispatches, we organized a series of evening events along with our editor, Chris Ying. The three MAD Mondays draw content from Dispatches’ first volume, You and I Eat The Same, highlighting how cooking and eating connect us across cultural and political borders. Together with the book’s contributors and local experts, we talked about how good food can be common ground between different cultures—a link between communities—and explored how immigration has built these cities’ rich culinary culture.
