Publishers Text

Lucky Peach was a quarterly journal of food writing. It was 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 Productions' producers of the Travel Channel's Emmy Award winning Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations.

The result of this collaboration was a mèlange of travelogue, essays, art, photography, and rants in a full-color, meticulously designed format. Recipes defied the tired ingredients-and-numbered-steps formula. They were laid out sensibly, inspired by the thought process that went into developing them.

Each issue focused on a theme, with contributions from Harold McGee, Ruth Reichl, John T. Edge, Todd Kliman and a cavalcade of other writers and artists.

The aim of Lucky Peach was to give a platform to a brand of food writing that began with unorthodox authors like Bourdain, resulting in a publication that appealed to diehard foodies as well as fans of good writing and art in general. The magazine has now folded.
