    Description"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. Issue 11 is our ALL YOU CAN EAT issue. We eat and eat and eat some more: at a country club in Boca Raton, at a series of wedding feasts in the Republic of Georgia, in the parking lot outside of the Iron Bowl. We attempt to beat the buffet, see how people stuff themselves at sex parties, hang out with Yu Bo, the best Chinese chef you've never heard of ("All Yu Can Eat"), and learn about ruminant digestion ("All Ewe Can Eat"). Gabrielle Hamilton demonstrates the many ways to enjoy the celery languishing in our crispers; novelist Padgett Powell shoots (then stews) the ubiquitous squirrel. Plus, we take stock of what hunger looks like around the world and of what's for dinner at a prison in Westville, Indiana. Too much? That's the point.

    Review quote
    "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."--"Time""The magazine's tone is so casual it's almost drunken. Its aesthetic is a graphic pulp pastiche of drawings, photo essays and kitsch--you'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."--"The Guardian"
