Have you read this magazine? This second issue just arrived in my mailbox and I love it. The moment I heard that McSweeney's was coming out with a food magazine I got a subscription. After the first two issues I can't recommend Lucky Peach enough. I'm not the only one that loves it. This is the kind of food/drink magazine I've been dreaming of for a long time.
In Lucky Peach you won't find page after page of fussy kitchen and food shots that require stylists and production teams and you won't have to page through seemingly endless glossy ads until you get to the meat of the matter. There are paintings of past-its-prime blue cheese, recipe corrections composed in comics, how-to photos for killing and cleaning fish, and stickers! (The mock fruit stickers -- you know these kinds of stickers but funny -- are between page 112 and 113 in the second issue.) There's cursing. There's a haiku about corn with miso butter and bacon. There are honest and original stories with strong voices that you haven't heard before that make you laugh, think and feel and want to cook and eat. It's real, raw and it's ripe for the picking. Go get yourself a Lucky Peach.
