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.
