 Lucky Peach is a new journal of food writing, published on a quarterly basis by 

McSweeney’s. It is a creation of David Chang, the chef behind the Momofuku

restaurants in New York, writer Peter Meehan, and Zero Point Zero Production—producers of the

Emmy Award–winning  Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. The aim of Lucky Peach is to create a

publication that appeals to diehard foodies as well as fans of good writing and art in general.

Okay, so there's tons of foodie mags out there. This one really delivers the goods. Imagine if Gastronomica and the old print version of BoingBoing had a love child; that's Lucky Peach.  It sucked me right in with it's A-list contributors, great art, and focused stories. If you're the kind of person who loves Andrew Zimmerman AND Anthony Bourdain on TV but still also clings to their Julia Child DVD set, you want this magazine. (THUS QUOTING THREEMOONS)
