Book Description

25 Feb 2014 Lucky Peach (Book 10)
"Lucky Peach" is a quarterly journal of food and writing. Each issue focuses on a single theme, and explores that theme through essays, art, photography, and recipes. "Lucky Peach Issue 10" is our Street Food issue. Less summary than survey, the issue takes to the world's streets like a starved flaneur, flitting from birria in Mexico City to chicharron-studded tortillas in Buenos Aires, from chaat in Mumbai to gizzard noodle soup in Chiang Mai's Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. We watched as children made stick bread in Copenhagen and share a report on who's eating all your cigarette butts. (Spoiler: microbes.) For Jonathan Gold, the experience of eating street food is inseparable from time and place. We delve into the history of "Turkey in the Straw," an ice-cream truck ditty that rings out across Los Angeles; we spend a day with the Doughnut Luchador of East LA (doughnut slinger by day, luchador by night). We learn what happens, exactly, when you cook with charcoal, and what nixtamalizing does to corn. Plus, a look into the wondrous array of street sausages around the globe, the best of the wurst.

Product Description


"A glorious, improbable artifact... "Lucky Peach" is not only something to behold, it is also something to hold, a reminder of print's true wingspan."--"The New York Times""A masterpiece of modern-food culture." --"Time""The magazine's tone is so casual it's almost drunken. Its aesthetic is a graphic pulp pastiche of drawings, photo essays and kitsch--you'll discover traces of comic books, handwritten script and recipes presented in science-lab format." --"The Wall Street Journal""There's been a sudden growth in magazines for food obsessives eager for more than just recipes. "Lucky Peach"... is perhaps the cleverest. A nerdy, witty high-end- fan-zine, it makes smart use of Chang's contacts, with Anthony Bourdain, Harold McGee and Mario Batali among the contributors." --"The Guardian"

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing approach to food writing 13 April 2014
By Jameso
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been buying Lucky Peach since issue one, so no surprises I like it. Having read many examples of the standard food mags, whiile enjoying thier recipes and info, get a vauge feeling it's all slightly differing approaches to the same concept, which is fine but sometimes you hanker after a more novel outlook.

Lucky Peach takes a more culty ziney approach, it is not packed with recipes, and some of those that are included may not be of your mid-week supper variety. But what this mag does in spades is, great contributers (Harold McGee always fascinates me), food culture, personal experiances, and rarely covered international themes.

So if you like your straight recipe packed mag, maybe not for you. But if you like to take a big (sometimes quirky) picture approach to food and the culture surrounding it, you may well embrace it's originality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great articles with a few bores... 14 April 2014
By Maniwero - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some of the articles in this edition, like the one related to making Masa and Nixtamalization are incredibly informative and include great recipes (like poaching an egg inside a puffy tortilla). Unfortunately there are a few bores that seem like filler, perhaps at fault is that the edition sticks too firmly to being a "street food" edition. Overall, very good though and worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Issue of A Stellar Magazine 25 Mar 2014
By Tyson Chaplin - Published on Amazon.com
Lucky Peach is hands down one of my favorite magazines. I am a foodie and this publication combines great writing and illustrations with the tasty morsels I love so much. If you like food and you want a more youthful and well-written magazine about it, try Lucky Peach. After your first issue, you will wish this was a monthly publication and not a quarterly one.

As denoted, this is the street food issue and it is plum full of great essays and articles on various street food vendors, locales, and ethnicities.

Lucky Peach is a great magazine and this issue is one of its best yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brimming with great articles about street food! 25 Feb 2014
By T. Viemont - Published on Amazon.com
I am a Lucky Peach subscriber. This issue is, perhaps, the best one yet. There are so many articles to read! If you're at all into street food, buy this magazine immediately.

3.0 out of 5 stars What's it all about 16 May 2014
By JoAnn K Mirsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about. While it is an interesting concept, sort of Mad Mag meets food writer,
Don't think I'll be getting the next issue.
