Overview


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 #13, our "Feel the Joy" issue, arrives just in time for the holiday season. Like Dorie Greenspan, the high priestess of holiday (and year-round) baking, we're indiscriminate lovers of all holidays. This issue's educational: there's fiction from Anthony Bourdain, with real advice on how not to ruin a turkey dinner (hint: two turkeys), and recipes for recreating Peter Meehan's traditional Christmas Eve Feast of the One Fishes (that's lobster rolls). Our celebrations take us all around the world, from a halal butcher shop in New York's East Village to Haiti, where Adam Gollner celebrates with Vodounistes. We learn from a mithai master at a sweets shop in London, celebrate Christmas in India, home of some of the world's oldest Christian communities, and marvel at mountains of food in Indonesia, where celebrations are marked by gunangans (food mountains). We learn the science behind what happens when we overeat; plus plans for how to build your own gingerbread mansion and cocktail cures for what ails you.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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
