"A glorious, improbable artifact
Lucky Peach is not only something to behold, it is also something to hold, a reminder of print’s true wingspan.”
The New York Times
"A masterpiece of modern-food culture."
The magazine’s tone is so casual it’s almost drunken. Its aesthetic is a graphic pulp pastiche of drawings, photo essays and kitschyou’ll discover traces of comic books, handwritten script and recipes presented in science-lab format.”
The Wall Street Journal
There’s been a sudden growth in magazines for food obsessives eager for more than just recipes. Lucky Peach
is perhaps the cleverest. A nerdy, witty high-end- fan-zine, it makes smart use of Chang’s contacts, with Anthony Bourdain, Harold McGee and Mario Batali among the contributors.”
