This was highly entertaining, thoughtful, thought provoking and informative. I enjoyed it. I have previously avoided your sandwich essays because the subject sparked no interest for me, but after reading this I will go back and read the rest. Thank you.

The sandwich essays are why I became a paid subscriber -- they are fascinating and a wonderful insight into the often dark cultural history behind food around the world!

You let us 'have a seat at the table', but are we included in the discussion? You might include us finally, but we still don't feel like we *belong*." --consolidated over the years.
