“This grilled cheese is a sandwich that depicts hope, and the absence of hope, in modes that are simultaneously personal and universal. The surface of the sandwich may appear simple, but one is always engaged by a deeper fullness, richness and multivalence. A triumphant debut.”







“At times both funny & heartbreaking, these three emotionally rich & incisive musketeers weave the remembered with the present. A postmodern classic.”






“If there’s a more thoroughly brilliant and exciting new muffin than the blueberry…well there just isn’t.”





“A dill pickle continually engages and surprises. In its rhetorical honesty, emotional lucidity and lyric vivacity, it captures the simultaneous joy and dejection of young men caught in the ‘industrial pull’ of our time.”







“Not only Hamlet, but John Locke and Alexander Portnoy would have appreciated this chocolate chip cookie. Deft, sweet, grounded in the real—even the ordinary—yet including in its structure the presence of mystery, this cookie is an excavation of the present moment.”





“I ate this gummy peach at UC Berkeley, and the walls of the academy rumbled.”






“If you like the color blue—if you like 4chan, Mama Cass, and stealing other people’s staplers—you owe it to yourself to eat a meatball sub.”





“It’s been quite a long time since I’ve eaten chicken that combines both bombast and melancholia. General Tso’s has succeeded in doing just that. There isn’t one single piece of chicken that doesn’t bask in its own shadow—near midnight—swooning and singing.”






“There’s so much depth and precision in this breakfast taco that it feels like the culmination of a life’s work. What wonderful providence for us that it’s only 10 AM.”
