Lucky Peach #14
In This Item
Obsession is the theme of Lucky Peach #14. This issue highlights both the team’s obsessions, and those of true obsessives. Get obsessed with Tartine’s Chad Robertson, who shares about his obsessions with ovens and pizza; and learn to make gnocchi with Marco Canora, Mark Ladner, and David Chang. Dig around in the past of chef Jeremy Fox, formerly of the Michelin-starred Ubuntu. Read about a sake sommelier and a pizza burlesque dancer. Todd Kliman writes the story of his life in pork. Lastly, look into America’s love for playing Monopoly at McDonald’s; why West Virginia is for ranch dressing-lovers; and what James Bond ate.
This quarterly might have some serious foodie star power behind it, with Momofuku legend David Chang as a co-founder, but once you pick up a copy, it'll be the last thing on your mind. Each issue is dedicated to a certain theme, and the stories are so in-depth, vivid and well-written - and peppered with impactful, unexpected visuals - that by the time you're done devouring the magazine, you're guaranteed to be an expert on the topic ... be it ramen (like the first issue) or even Chinatown and its myriad of culinary offerings.
