    Dispatches is the inspired and ambitious collaboration between MAD, the international nonprofit organisation founded by René Redzepi, the chef and co-owner of Noma, and Lucky Peach cofounder and editor in chief Chris Ying. Each edition of this new series of single-subject books will encourage readers to think about food in new ways and take action to make food better. Each book will unpack a single urgent and interesting topic, from the history of creative cooking to farming in a world changed by global warming.

    The first book—You and I Eat the Same: On the Countless Ways Food and Cooking Connect Us to One Another—proposes that immigration is fundamental to cuisine, and that good food is the common ground between different cultures. The book comprises long-form writing about the ways in which immigration has shaped food, and shorter features that point to our similarities, including the many ways we wrap meat in flatbreads, a basic primer on fire, and a catalog of all the species of animals that we eat. Dispatches is poised to take all our ideas about food to the next level.

    Amidst the olive groves of Jerusalem, the pulsating spice markets of Nazareth and the vineyards of Bethlehem, travel writer and cook Yasmin Khan falls in love with the flavours and fragrances of modern Palestine. Palestinian food is simple, seasonal and predominantly plant-based, bursting with a freshness and brightness that is characteristic of all Levantine cooking. It has evolved over several millennia, through the influences of Arabic, Jewish, Armenian, Persian, Turkish and Bedouin cultures and civilisations that have ruled over, or lived in, the area known as ancient Palestine. From the colourful array of mezze dishes that make use of the region 's bountiful aubergines, peppers, artichokes and green beans; to slow-cooked stews of chicken and lamb flavoured with Palestinian barahat spice blends; to the masterful marriage of citrusy local extra virgin olive oil with earthy za 'atar, served in small bowls to accompany toasted breads, Palestinian food rejoices in satisfying all the senses.

    Yasmin 's journey takes her from the sun-kissed pomegranate stalls of Akka, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, via evergreen oases of date plantations in the Jordan Valley, to the fading fish markets of Gaza city. In each place she visits, Yasmin enters the homes and kitchens of Palestinians of all ages and backgrounds, discovering the secrets of their ancient cuisine and sharing heart-lifting stories. Featuring more than 80 modern recipes that are all fully accessible to the home cook, Zaitoun reveals and revels in the delights of the Palestinian kitchen.
