Lucky Peach is a journal of food writing, published on a quarterly basis by McSweeney’s. It is a creation of David Chang, the James Beard Award–winning chef behind the Momofuku restaurants in New York, Momofuku cookbook cowriter Peter Meehan, and Zero Point Zero Production—producers of the Travel Channel’s Emmy Award–winningAnthony Bourdain: No Reservations. Momofuku means Lucky Peach.

My buddy Brad Hagen first lent me his issue #1 and I was hooked. It was an issue all about Ramen, every article written was about Ramen. I read that magazine for weeks and I still don’t think I read the whole thing, it is awesome. Sadly I had to give the Issue 1 back, but I have Issues 2 & 3. Now I am kicking myself for not getting #1 on Amazon, because a new #1 is selling new for $210 and used for $185! Current issues are less than $10.
