I'm never sure what this is supposed to be but I do enjoy reading most of it. It is like a foodies Playboy without the centerfold.

I have all of them (that I am aware of anyway) and I find them close by as I pick them up now and then.

I bought this on a whim with a credit I had from a purchase gone wrong .... I'm not saying that it's "Bad" but it just did not resonate with me ... I'm more of a clean eating mag / rachael ray type ...

HASH(0xb7f27a68) out of 5 stars My favourite issue so far. Dec 24 2012
By Wild Thing Foodie - Published on

Anyone with a food interest who orders Chinese Takeaways and Chow Mein, should buy this issue. Not only did I like the subject matter and the writing on it, but enjoyed the little tidbits of historic information on packaged Chinese sauces, and the small affects of the Chinese Alien Act in the late 1800's, the origin of the name for "Bing" cherry, etc. I own every Thomas Keller cookbook, but give me cold, leftover Chinese takeaways and Chinese peasant food for breakfast any day! Again, I enjoyed the articles.
HASH(0x9aa51b58) out of 5 stars Addictive! Dec 5 2015

This is definitely one of the more interesting LP issues, but I don't think I'd ever pay the crazy high prices I usually see on Amazon for it. I got lucky and found this issue for $5 and promptly bought it. The articles all revolve around a China Town theme and they're very well written. It is interesting to see how this issue is different from later issues, as I can see LP has evolved for the better. Still, the articles are well thought out and suck me in. It is very hard to put down, even when my 3 month old son screams for me I grudgingly must finish every paragraph I'm reading, because I'm hooked. In short, this is just as addictive as General Tsaos chicken and crab Rangoon.
HASH(0x9b43d9cc) out of 5 stars If you like your Chinatown they buy this issue. April 1 2014

I love San Francisco's Chinatown, and Lucky Peach #5 has an article about it and other Chinatowns. The greatest San Francisco Bay Area food writer Jonathan Kauffman wrote a piece about the vegetables grown for sale in Chinatown.

Love, love, love Lucky Peach. There is such a creative compilation of food writing, great recipes, and great graphics. Kind of joyful romp in the eyes of many very creative people.

HASH(0x9aea16e0) out of 5 stars "ANOTHER FASCINATING ISSUE OF LUCKY PEACH!" Nov. 6 2012
By Author/Reviewer Geri Ahearn - Published on
I collect them all, and every issue has not yet disappointed. In issue 5 of this very enjoyable journal, includes interesting facts on travel, fun-filled ideas and tips, and much more. In addition, the colorful photos are stunning, and the mouth-watering recipes are worth preparing. The essays are thought-provoking, and the journal inspires, page-after-page. I love this issue of 176 pages that entertains from beginning to end. I find this issue more appealing than the last issue. However, this journal always aims to please, and I will indeed collect them all! The perfect gift for family and friends for any occasion. They will enjoy it as much as you did, especially that the holiday season is around the corner. A gift of pure joy that you can simply read over-and-over, and a Great conversational piece for your coffee table. I always leave an issue out in the open, during social gatherings. It never fails that Someone always takes a glance at it, and a topic of choice begins a conversation of pure joy. Delightful, refreshing, and Highly Recommended!
