Lucky Peach Issue 12 : Seashore
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 #12 is all about food from littoral realms - the spaces where land meets sea. We dive for abalone and gather seaweed off the California coast; we harvest honey in the Bangladeshi Sundarabans; we go behind the scenes at a shrimp farm in Indonesia, and spend a Sunday at the cockle sheds in Leigh-on-Sea. We learn lots about edible sea beasts, from clams to hagfish to sea squirts. Anthony Bourdain takes us on a stroll down a beach town's memory lane; Robert Sietsema samples practically all the clams on Long Island; Stuart Dybek catches himself a perfect breakfast in the Florida keys. We share recipes from Vietnam and Portugal and the Oregon coast-we aren't shellfish. Also in this issue: a special, detachable sixteen-page Beach Reads comic book to take on your seaside jaunts, featuring comics by Jason Jagel, Tony Millionaire, and more, because it's summertime, and the reading is easy.

"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
