Book Description

26 July 2012 Lucky Peach (Book 4)
Lucky Peach is a journal of food writing, published on a quarterly basis by McSweeney's. It is a creation of David Chang, the James Beard Award--winning chef behind the Momofuku restaurants in New York, Momofuku cookbook cowriter Peter Meehan, and Zero Point Zero Production--producers of the Travel Channel's Emmy Award--winning Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. The result of this collaboration is a melange of travelogue, essays, art, photography, and rants in a full-color, meticulously designed format. Recipes will defy the tired ingredients-and-numbered-steps formula. They'll be laid out sensibly, inspired by the thought process that went into developing them. The aim of Lucky Peach is to give a platform to a brand of food writing that began with unorthodox authors like Bourdain, resulting in a publication that appeals to diehard foodies as well as fans of good writing and art in general. What's inside? -David Simon, creator of The Wire and Treme, remembers his father via pickles and cream. -Jonathan Gold and Robert Sietsema talk Teletubbies in Kansas City. -There's a "Choose Your Own Adventure"--style hunt for tacos through Texas and California. -Plus stuff from Harold McGee, Anthony Bourdain, Elvis Mitchell, and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic as usual 2 July 2013
By Matt P
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe not quite as strong as the superb issue 3, but this is still my all-time favourite magazine title. This issue is worth buying just for Wylie Dufresne's kombu burger recipe. Very very cool.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 15 May 2013
By G.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The people that are involved in this are very good but maybe they should stick to cooking and leave writting to others. This was very disappointing in terms of content and not worth the money

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh what a disappointment 24 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The designer of this magazine must be on something. Dreadful design, confused and poor writing does not make this a long term proposition. I'll give it another year at most

2.0 out of 5 stars Better to order individually from Amazon 19 Sep 2012
By Bonnie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I do not recommend subscribing to this. The journal is cool, but sort of long-winded. Additionally, I swear, the next issue always has at least three "corrections" to recipes from the issue before. Cooking out of this magazine proves to be a waste all around. I think if you are using it because you loooooooooooove Chang, you will most likely be happy. Other than that it is a little too pretentious for me, but I only have a minor love of food, I'm not one of these crazy foodies.

Also, of the four issues I had subscribed for last year, I only received one. At issue three, I cancelled and requested a full refund because I realized that the third issue was out and I hadn't gotten one since the first. They did reimburse me, so I appreciated that. I settle for taking these out from the library.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still good. 17 Feb 2013
By Benjamin Ash - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this issue but I thought The Cook's Issue was worth five stars and this one just didn't stack up as well. It wasn't as entertaining to read, but still far better than the other food mags on the rack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it 10 Oct 2013
By Jason Jablonski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This mag is fun as hell to read, i love it. I cannot wait for more to read. I hope they eventually branch out to a bit more than just star chefs and to more unknowns though.
