The Plant Kingdom issue of Lucky Peach celebrates the great many things you can do with fruits and vegetables, from cooking and eating them, to growing and grafting new ones, to churning them into ice cream, to growing cabbages the size of Volkswagens. We talk to Deborah Madison, who redefined vegetarian cooking in America through her food and her writing. We take an unflinching look at the reality of producing white sugar, find out the truth about “Ethiopian” teff, meet a few mezcaleros, and get a lesson in the art of fruit massage. Daniel Humm turns daikon into fish, and Sam Mason turns baked beans into dessert. Meanwhile, Barbara Lynch, Joshua McFadden, and Marc Vetri showcase the many simpler splendors of cooking with vegetables.

Lucky Peach Magazine Issue 13
Softcover, 168 pages.
Lucky Peach is a quarterly journal of food and writing. Each issue focuses on a single theme, and explores that theme through essays, art, photography, and recipes.
Lucky Peach #13, our "Feel the Joy" issue, arrives just in time for the holiday season. Like Dorie Greenspan, the high priestess of holiday (and year-round) baking, we're indiscriminate lovers of all holidays. This issue's educational: there's fiction from Anthony Bourdain, with real advice on how not to ruin a turkey dinner (hint: two turkeys), and recipes for recreating Peter Meehan's traditional Christmas Eve Feast of the One Fishes (that's lobster rolls). Our celebrations take us all around the world, from a halal butcher shop in New York's East Village to Haiti, where Adam Gollner celebrates with Vodounistes. We learn from a mithai master at a sweets shop in London, celebrate Christmas in India, home of some of the world's oldest Christian communities, and marvel at mountains of food in Indonesia, where celebrations are marked by gunangans (food mountains). We learn the science behind what happens when we overeat; plus plans for how to build your own gingerbread mansion and cocktail cures for what ails you.
Lucky Peach Magazine Issue 16 : Fantasy
Softcover, 168 pages
In Lucky Peach’s sixteenth issue, Fantasy, we finally reveal our much-anticipated picks for “America’s Next Best Restaurants”—and better still, for readers who are disinclined to show their faces in public—we’ve scored the hottest recipes from these mythical eateries. When you’re ready to retreat from the scorching sizzle of all that hot, buzzy news: Meg McCarron holds court on the history of food in fantasy literature and Laurie Woolever shares a personal essay from the dark side of the Yellow Brick Road. Tienlon Ho traveled to the steppes of Central Asia to bring back a story about yartsa gunbu, a mostly flavorless fungus-infested caterpillar that is hugely valuable on the black market and may or may not have magical healing properties. There’s also a heartfelt open letter from the Great Dane himself (René Redzepi) and another one of those crazy insightful and doubly delightful profiles of a chef by Rachel Khong, this time about the couple behind Hartwood, everybody’s favorite outdoor restaurant on a jungle road in Tulum.
