"Lucky Peach" is a journal of food writing, published on a quarterly basis by McSweeney's. It is a creation of David Chang, the James Beard Award-winning chef behind the Momofuku restaurants in New York, "Momofuku" cookbook cowriter Peter Meehan, and Zero Point Zero Production--producers of the Travel Channel's Emmy Award-winning "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations."
The result of this collaboration is a melange of travelogue, essays, art, photography, and rants in a full-color, meticulously designed format. Recipes will defy the tired ingredients-and-numbered-steps formula. They'll be laid out sensibly, inspired by the thought process that went into developing them. The aim of "Lucky Peach" is to give a platform to a brand of food writing that began with unorthodox authors like Bourdain, resulting in a publication that appeals to diehard foodies as well as fans of good writing and art in general.
