I don't know what I was looking for but certainly not this. I thought it was a different food magazine. Different it is but there mich more about anything else then about food and there's certainly too much about the magazine's instigators. It's like a big journal where they a,d their friends come and say whatever comes to mind about a theme. The design isn't appetizing at all. The recipe aren't appetizing either which is a big shame. Some texts are fun to read, most are too long. For me, it's a lot of blabla. Not worth the prize at all. I cancel the order for the next issue.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Keeps getting better18 novembre 2011
Par M. McFall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Lucky Peach is a very unique quarterly primarily targeted at "foodies" (pejorative? or badge of honor?), but can hold its own when keeping the attention of varied audiences. It's got social commentary, cultural insights, and hell of a lot of interesting stories/viewpoints. The first issue of Lucky Peach was fantastic, but it is in the second issue that Chang's Lucky Peach shows that it's got what it takes to stick around and be worth your continued attention and dollar. It doesn't fall into food blogger-esque habits of relying on cuss words and attitude like a crutch, nor does it heavily rely on the pretension of constant name dropping of celebrity chefs and the hottest digs to be seen at. I really appreciate this, because I don't care about keeping track of the who's who in the culinary world. I'm also far from being a "good" cook or chef, yet the writers and Chang remain very relatable in their experiences/musings. Despite this issue's themes and cover involving rot, the bottom line is that Lucky Peach stays fresh.
There are also stickers in this issue.

3.0 étoiles sur 5Ode to David Chang17 février 2012
Par Jerilea Hendrick - Publié sur Amazon.com
I thought this magazine was okay (issue 2). Unique recipes, lots of food writing. I love food writing. The first story was primarily about David Chang. The second one was about David Chang. The third and fourth one too.... Please don't get me wrong, he has done great things for the world of food and his cook book is great. No doubt. It's just that after a while with every story being about him or making strong reference to him, it felt like a biography. I guess I just love food writing with a variety of food stories about various places, things, topics, foods that are not centered around just one person or just one thing.

Great food writing! I am really enjoying the creative approach Lucky Peach designers and writers use to present each issue's theme. I read issue #1 cover to cover and am devouring issue #2. It is so exciting to learn about new techniques and trends in fine dining as well as some more accessible things such as "decorate fruit stickers." There is something for everyone in Lucky Peach. I wait on the doorstep for the mail when it is Lucky Peach time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5Lucky Peach hitting the Sweet Spot21 décembre 2011
Par Matt Faust - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a great read, I love Lucky Peach. So worth the cover price. The theme for this issue (the point at which food reaches the "sweet spot" of freshness/aging/fermentation) was a bit to wrap my mind around at first, but it all comes together.
In comparison to Issue 1, I would say that the articles are a bit more weighty (a good thing) and the recipes are bit further out of reach for the home cook. That said, there are still quite a few things in here I'd like to try, and I already made the fish sauce vinaigrette (amazing).

"I can't wait for the next issue." pretty much sums up this review. Lucky Peach is filled with whimsical artwork (stickers even!), interesting articles of all kinds that will provide even the most seasoned food nerds with new information. It's a thrill to sit down with a good drink and plow through page after page.
