i love food. like, love love food. so when i can not only eat it, cook it, think about it, and look at it, but also read interesting articles about it, then i'm as happy as a clam. the new quarterly publication lucky peach takes the culinary genius of david chang (momofuku) and combines it with the literary genius of mcsweeneys, and the result is a really fresh and smart take on the world of food. whereas most cooking-related magazines usually take a glossier approach to things (and i find, can get repetitive), i appreciate how lucky peach reflects the grittier, snarkier side of the kitchen. also, the covers, illustration, and photography are great. check it out on your newsstands or get it online here.
