This is the second issue from the Lucky Peach team. There are a few changes in this issue: more diversity in the topic and a few tasteful (har har) adverts (they need to pay the bills y'know).

I eagerly await the next issue...

HASH(0xa8345894) out of 5 stars Keeps getting better Nov. 18 2011
By Michael M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lucky Peach is a very unique quarterly primarily targeted at "foodies" (pejorative? or badge of honor?), but can hold its own when keeping the attention of varied audiences. It's got social commentary, cultural insights, and hell of a lot of interesting stories/viewpoints. The first issue of Lucky Peach was fantastic, but it is in the second issue that Chang's Lucky Peach shows that it's got what it takes to stick around and be worth your continued attention and dollar. It doesn't fall into food blogger-esque habits of relying on cuss words and attitude like a crutch, nor does it heavily rely on the pretension of constant name dropping of celebrity chefs and the hottest digs to be seen at. I really appreciate this, because I don't care about keeping track of the who's who in the culinary world. I'm also far from being a "good" cook or chef, yet the writers and Chang remain very relatable in their experiences/musings. Despite this issue's themes and cover involving rot, the bottom line is that Lucky Peach stays fresh.

There are also stickers in this issue.

HASH(0xa8345ae0) out of 5 stars Ode to David Chang Feb. 17 2012
By Jerilea Hendrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I thought this magazine was okay (issue 2). Unique recipes, lots of food writing. I love food writing. The first story was primarily about David Chang. The second one was about David Chang. The third and fourth one too.... Please don't get me wrong, he has done great things for the world of food and his cook book is great. No doubt. It's just that after a while with every story being about him or making strong reference to him, it felt like a biography. I guess I just love food writing with a variety of food stories about various places, things, topics, foods that are not centered around just one person or just one thing.

HASH(0xa8345d20) out of 5 stars Full of Good Reads Nov. 24 2011
By V. McMullen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great food writing! I am really enjoying the creative approach Lucky Peach designers and writers use to present each issue's theme. I read issue #1 cover to cover and am devouring issue #2. It is so exciting to learn about new techniques and trends in fine dining as well as some more accessible things such as "decorate fruit stickers." There is something for everyone in Lucky Peach. I wait on the doorstep for the mail when it is Lucky Peach time.

HASH(0xa835209c) out of 5 stars Lucky Peach hitting the Sweet Spot Dec 21 2011
By Matt Faust - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great read, I love Lucky Peach. So worth the cover price. The theme for this issue (the point at which food reaches the "sweet spot" of freshness/aging/fermentation) was a bit to wrap my mind around at first, but it all comes together.

In comparison to Issue 1, I would say that the articles are a bit more weighty (a good thing) and the recipes are bit further out of reach for the home cook. That said, there are still quite a few things in here I'd like to try, and I already made the fish sauce vinaigrette (amazing).

HASH(0xa83522b8) out of 5 stars Not sure what to think.... Dec 30 2011
By Krista Richards Mann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Kind of weird, kind of cute. Literary food magazine with crazy cool stickers to decorate fruit. Actually, the fruit stickers fascinated me and I wanted to go to the grocery store to paste them on produce that had yet to be purchased. But, they have surveillance cameras in markets, right? It was a fun read with a couple great recipes (involving hard to find ingredients).
