Adam Gopnik: The Table Comes First: Family, France, and the Meaning of Food

Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


Description

Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review Amazon Best Books of the Month, November 2011 : Adam Gopnik again demonstrates his considerable talents in The Table Comes First , a collection of musings on one of his favorite subjects: food. Fans of Paris to the Moon and Through the Children’s Gate know that Gopnik is a true gourmand whose tastes have been refined in the kitchen with his friend Alice Waters, on the velvet banquettes of Parisian bistros, and at chaotic New York City takeout counters. These essays cover a broad range of food-related topics, including the origins of the modern restaurant and the arguments for and against eating meat. But Gopnik’s overarching mission is to celebrate the pleasures of sitting around a table and sharing a meal with family and friends--a pleasure, he notes, that is at once universal and deeply personal. It is at this intersection of macro and micro where Gopnik’s insatiable intellect and warmth are best displayed. --Juliet Disparte --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Review “Adam Gopnik brilliantly weaves together the history, philosophy, and culture of food with his deep passion for cooking and the shared pleasures of the table.” —Ina Garten “At once sweeping and intimate. . . . Gopnik’s story is more ambitious than a history of restaurants—it’s about how we taste, dream, and argue about food. . . . The Table Comes First indulges gourmands everywhere. And it’s a refreshing defense of the nation responsible in so many ways for the way we eat now. In Gopnik’s distinctive style, it is encyclopedic yet personal and funny, and it drives at deeper truths.” — Newsweek   “Captivating.” — The New York Times   “Exuberant. . . . What flows through [ The Table Comes First ] is a deep fascination with gastronomy as a life force and with the way it’s awakened and flourished over the last couple of centuries. . . . Gopnik acts as reporter, historian, participant and philosopher as he leads us on a kind of walking tour of the food world.” — Slate   “Unapologetically intelligent yet charmingly witty . . . [here is] history, nutrition, philosophy, anthropology, and sociology all rolled up into one delectable streusel of insight and illumination.” — The Atlantic   “Gopnik is the nearest thing there is—in the English-speaking world, at any rate—to a philosopher of food. . . . These essays blend enormous erudition with great elegance of expression, and pack intellectual firepower too.” — New Statesman   “I need to read anything that Adam Gopnik writes, and this book on food, eating and—it follows—life is a particular feast. His acuity, grace, sensitive intelligence (in short, his brilliance) are, as ever, dazzlingly displayed and yet with the lightest of touches.” —Nigella Lawson   “Gopnik would surely be the world’s greatest dinner guest; he can make any subject fascinating, and always backs up his curiosity with unhurried research and an acute eye for the telling detail.” — Chicago Tribune   “Compelling. . . . Gopnik gets elbow deep in heady theory, culinary history, and his own passions. . . . He is a champion at making connections, wild and free-ranging. Among the allusions are revelations.” — The Boston Globe   “The perfect book for any intellectual foodie, a delicious book packed with so much to sink your teeth into.” —Padma Lakshmi   “Entertaining. . . . Gopnik’s long experience with France and fine dining yields some fine observations. . . . [Reading The Table Comes First ,] you feel as if you’re sitting across the table from an amusing friend recounting his adventures.” — Minnesota Star Tribune   “Gopnik’s discussions on the changing nature of tastes and how it defines what we believe to be ‘good’ and ‘right’ in food are a timely study on the divergent yet complementary trends in modern cooking.” — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette   “Gopnik’s writing about food is highly intellectual and profoundly witty, while also being warm and personal and rooted in common sense. He thinks hard about the routines of the table, and makes you think too.” —John Lanchester, author of The Debt to Pleasure   “Those who share Gopnik’s twin affections for food and reading will find plenty to savor in The Table Comes First . . . . He’s an essayist in the grand tradition, throwing out pithy sentences that offer the reader plenty to argue about, and then blithely contradicting himself on the next page. It’s easy to imagine how pleasant a table companion he must be.” — The Columbus Dispatch See all Editorial Reviews

From the author of Paris to the Moon , a beguiling tour of the morals and manners of our present food mania, in search of eating’s deeper truths.   Never before have we cared so much about food. It preoccupies our popular culture, our fantasies, and even our moralizing. With our top chefs as deities and finest restaurants as places of pilgrimage, we have made food the stuff of secular seeking and transcendence, finding heaven in a mouthful. But have we come any closer to discovering the true meaning of food in our lives? With inimitable charm and learning, Adam Gopnik takes us on a beguiling journey in search of that meaning as he charts America’s recent and rapid evolution from commendably aware eaters to manic, compulsive gastronomes.

    Terry Pratchett: The Last Continent (Discworld)

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review Terry Pratchett's 22nd Discworld novel, The Last Continent , is a lighthearted tour of the fantasy land of Fourecks, a very Australian sort of place, with brief courses in theoretical physics and evolution thrown in for good measure. Pratchett returns to his first Discworld protagonist, the inept and cowardly wizard Rincewind, who habitually runs into trouble as fast as he flees. Rincewind's arrival in Fourecks has distorted the space-time continuum, and he has to sort it out before the whole place dries up and blows away. The situation is complicated because the actual problem is located 30,000 years in the past--just where the Faculty of the Unseen University currently are. Pretty frightening, given "the true wizard's instinct to amble aimlessly into dangerous places," and then "stop and argue ... about exactly what kind of danger it [is]." If you're baffled by all this, no worries, mate. You needn't have read Pratchett before--not even the five previous Discworld novels starring Rincewind ( The Colour of Magic , The Light Fantastic , Sourcery , Eric , and Interesting Times )--to enjoy this latest romp. Nor to have visited Australia. When you finish, however, you'll likely want to rush out and do both. --Nona Vero --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review "Consistently, inventively mad...wild and wonderful!" -- -- Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine "If I were making my list of Best Books of the Twentieth Century, Terry Pratchett's would be ost of them" -- -- Elizabeth Peters "Superb popular entertainment" -- -- Washingtom Post Book World "Unadulterated fun... witty, frequently hilarious.... Pratchett parodies everything in sight." -- -- San Francisco Chronicle "Consistently, inventively mad...wild and wonderful!" -- -- Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine "Simply the best humorous writer of the twentieth century." -- -- Oxford Times "Terry Pratchett is fast, funny and going places. Try him!" -- -- Piers Anthony "The funniest parodist working in the field today, period." -- -- New York Review of Science Fiction --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. See all Editorial Reviews

    Something is seriously amiss at Unseen University, Ankh-Morpork's most prestigious (i.e., only) institution of higher learning. A professor is missing--and not just any professor. The Egregious Professor of Cruel and Unusual Geography. Also the University Librarian, who transmuted (you know how things change!) into an ape (a handy configuration for a librarian, don't you think?) so long ago that no one exactly remembers his name, least of all himself. But fear not, the search is on! The Lecturer in Recent Runes and the Chair of Indefinite Studies, as well as the Dean and the Archchancellor, will follow the trail wherever it leads--even to the other side of Discworld, where the Last Continent, Fourecks, is under construction. Imagine a magical land as bald as a baby's bottom, where there are no trees; where rain is but a myth; where there are precious few animals (and few of them precious). You have just imagined Fourecks (EcksEcksEcksEcks) where even the ordinary is strange (the four legged duck, for example,) as though evolution is being hurried up with the intention of sorting things out as soon as possible. Experience the terror as the University's bold would-be rescuers encounter the cowardly Wizard Rincewind, a Mad Dwarf armed with a crossbow, Death, Death of Rats, and even a Creator or two. Feel the passion as the bizarre denizens of the Last Continent learn what happens when rain falls out of the sky and rivers actually fill with water. (It utterly spoils regattas, for one thing.) Thrill to the promise of next year's regatta, in remote, rustic Didjabringabeeralong. It'll be absolutely gujeroo.

    Iris J. Stewart: Sacred Woman, Sacred Dance: Awakening Spirituality Through Movement and Ritual

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Review "If we seek the real source of the dance, if we go to nature, we find that the dance of the future is the dance of the past, the dance of eternity, and has been and will always be the same." ( Isadora Duncan ) "This is a marvelous and unique exploration of women's spirituality through a study of dance. It is beautifully illustrated with inspirational photos of sacred dancers. This is an excellent addition to the study of the many forms and expressions of Women's Spirituality." ( Circle Magazine, Winter 2000/2001 ) "Her bibliography and notes are extensive. She doesn't leave hanging the reader who wants to learn more about or participate in sacred dance, but offers several pages of resources. The book is not only a history of women and dance, but a textbook for performing sacred dances." ( Katie Watts, Argus-Courier Online ) "This book is the first to explore women's spiritual expression in the study of dance. In reclaiming our connection to sacred dance, we regain a valuable spiritual expression. A wonderful book!" ( Catholic Women's NETWORK, January/February 2001 ) "Although a wealth of research is behind the text it is conveyed in a very digestible form. Myths, history, symbolism together with ancient and modern forms of dance from all cultures are drawn together to uncover the meaning behind the dance." ( Frances Fawkes, The Grapevine Magazine ) "Stewart has provided a multitude of lovely pictures and illustrations to underscore her discovery of the existence of earlier sacred dance and her aspiration to encourage its growth. Although all of what she describes is available elsewhere, she has performed a valuable service by bringing it together under a single cover." ( Anne Apynys., Ph.D., Habibi, A Journal for Lovers of Middle Eastern Dance & Arts, Vol. 18, No. 3 ) "Richly illustrated with graphics and photographs from around the world (some taken at the sites by the author), this book is a record of Iris Stewart's search for evidence of the sacred-logically, historically and experientially." ( Dance Magazine, March 2001, Vol. 75, No. 3 ) "I don't know of another book like this one--don't miss it." ( Mary K. Greer, Tarot Newletter, Summer 2001 ) ". . . includes extensive source notes, bibliography and other resources, such that it could be considered a bible of sacred dance!" ( The Midwest Book Review, May 2002 ) "Dancers will find it of special interest, but it's delightful for everyone else as well. Highly recommended." ( Elizabeth Barrette, SageWoman, Summer 2002 ) "Exceptional." ( Today's Books, August 2000 ) About the Author Iris J. Stewart has taught dance and lectured on women’s subjects for over twenty years. She is the founder of WomanDance, a troupe which performs interpretive dances that explore women’s spirituality. To research this book, Stewart visited archaeological sites throughout Europe, the Middle East, and South America. She lives in northern California.

    Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review A Reading Guide for Ender's Game. THE ENDER UNIVERSE Ender's Series : Ender Wiggin: The finest general the world could hope to find or breed. The following Ender's Series titles are listed in order: Ender's Game , Ender In Exile , Speaker for the Dead , Xenocide , Children of the Mind .

Ender Novellas A War of Gifts , First Meetings . The Authorized Ender Companion : A complete and in-depth encyclopedia of all the persons, places, things, and events in Orson Scott Card’s Ender Universe. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition. From Publishers Weekly Starred Review. Card's latest installment in his Shadow subseries ( Ender's Shadow , etc.), which parallels the overarching series that began with Ender's Game (1985), does a superlative job of dramatically portraying the maturing process of child into adult. The imminent death of Bean, a superhuman 20-something Battle School graduate who suffers from uncontrolled growth due to a genetic disorder, leaves little time for Peter the Hegemon, Ender's older brother, to set up a single world government and for Bean and his wife and former classmate, Petra, to reclaim all their stolen children. When Card's focus strays from his characters into pure politics, the story loses power, but it's recharged as soon as he returns to the well-drawn interactions among Bean's Battle School classmates whose decisions will determine Earth's fate. They were trained to fight a (literally) single-minded alien enemy, but that war is over. Now, as young adults in command of human armies pitted against each other in messy conflicts with no clear solutions, Bean's old cohorts must help create a peaceful future for Earth after they're gone. Card makes the important point that there's always more than one side to every issue. Fans will marvel at how subtly he has prepared for the clever resolution. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. See all Editorial Reviews

    Bean's past was a battle just to survive. He first appeared on the streets of Rotterdam, a tiny child with a mind leagues beyond anyone else. He knew he could not survive through strength; he used his tactical genius to gain acceptance into a children's gang, and then to help make that gang a template for success for all the others. He civilized them, and lived to grow older. Then he was discovered by the recruiters for the Battle School. For Earth was at war - a terrible war with an inscrutable alien enemy. A war that humanity was near to losing. But the long distances of interstellar space has given hope to the defenders of Earth - they had time to train military geniuses up from childhood, forging them into an irresistible force in the high-orbital facility called the Battle School. That story is told in two books, Orson Scott Card's beloved classic Ender's Game , and its parallel, Ender's Shadow . Now, in Shadow of the Giant , Bean's story continues. Bean was the smallest student at the Battle School, but he became Ender Wiggins' right hand, Since then he has grown to be a power on Earth. He served the Hegemon as strategist and general in the terrible wars that followed Ender's defeat of the alien empire attacking Earth. Now he and his wife Petra yearn for a safe place to build a family - something he has never known - but there is nowhere on Earth that does not harbor his enemies - old enemies from the days in Ender's Jeesh, new enemies from the wars on Earth. To find security, Bean and Petra must once again follow in Ender's footsteps. They must leave Earth behind, in the control of the Hegemon, and look to the stars.

    Dreams of Terror and Death: The Dream Cycle of H. P. Lovecraft [ Free Download]

    H. P. Lovecraft: Dreams of Terror and Death: The Dream Cycle of H. P. Lovecraft

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review "One is drawn into Lovecraft by the very air of plausibility and characteristic understatement of the prose, the question being When will the weirdness strike? " writes Joyce Carol Oates in The New York Review of Books. Del Rey has reprinted Lovecraft's stories in three large-format paperbacks. This second volume, 25 tales in all, collects the classic "Case of Charles Dexter Ward," the phantasmagoric novel "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath," several fantasies inspired by Lord Dunsany and other stories. Introduction by Neil Gaiman (author of the Sandman comics). --This text refers to the Paperback edition. From Publishers Weekly Horror master Lovecraft (1890-1937) frequently used dreams in his tales of the supernatural to evoke fantastic worlds inconceivable to the conscious mind. This repackaging of 25 stories and fragments calls attention to that aspect of Lovecraft's work, but it won't convince anyone that the selections form a coherent cycle. In the light fantasies "Celephais," "The Silver Key" and "The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath," dreams are vehicles for travel to lands of enchantment in which men rub shoulders with gods and imaginary creatures. In the terror tales "The Dreams in the Witch-House," "Hypnos" and "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward," dreams intrude upon reality and serve as portents for horrors too terrible to engage directly. Both "The Statement of Randolph Carter" and the prose-poem "Nyarlathotep" are based on actual dreams of Lovecraft's, but a number of the other stories, good though they are, have no dream association whatsoever. Comics virtuoso Neil Gaiman (Sandman) supplies a respectful introduction that gives no clue to the selection criteria and, in several places, is factually incorrect. (Lovecraft placed two tales, not one, in the magazine Astounding Stories before its name was changed to Astounding Science Fiction, and before the tenure of editor John W. Campbell.) Its failed agenda notwithstanding, this book is a welcome tribute to a writer whose dreams inspired some of this century's finest literary nightmares. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Paperback edition. See all Editorial Reviews

    [Read by Robertson Dean, Simon Vance, Sean Runnette, Elijah Alexander, Stefan Rudnicki, Bronson Pinchot, Simon Prebble, Tom Weiner, Malcolm Hillgartner, Patrick Cullen] More than twenty tales from a master of horror! -- This volume collects, for the first time, the entire Dream Cycle created by H. P. Lovecraft, the master of twentieth-century horror, including some of his most fantastic tales, such as: The Doom That Came to Sarnath - Hate, genocide, and a deadly curse consume the land of Mnar. The Statement of Randolph Carter - ''You fool, Warren is dead!'' The Nameless City - Death lies beneath the shifting sands, in a story linking the Dream Cycle with the legendary Cthulhu Mythos. The Cats of Ulthar - In Ulthar, no man may kill a cat . . . and woe unto any who tries. The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath - The epic nightmare adventure with tendrils stretching throughout the entire Dream Cycle. *Plus twenty more tales of surreal terror!

    Lear, King of Britain, has three daughters: the hard-hearted Goneril and Regan and the gentle Cordelia. Wishing to ease himself of the burden of rule, he determines to divide his kingdom between them, giving the largest share to she who can say she loves him the best. Lears tragic lack of judgement and self-knowledge is paralleled by the blindness of the loyal Gloucester who is persuaded to reject his virtuous son Edgar in favor of the villainous Edmund. Plot and sub-plot combine to form a shattering drama of isolation and lossone of Shakespeares mightiest achievements and one of the greatest tragedies in the literature of the world.

    David Thomson: Moments That Made the Movies

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews From Booklist Our memories of movies tend to be dreamlike impressions. Often they involve “the look, the pace, the movement, the texture, the context,” a scene, or an image of a film. Film critic Thomson (The New Biographical Dictionary of Film, 2003) presents us with his selection of idiosyncratic moments, chronologically arranged, that are guaranteed to pique our interest and prompt us to revisit films or add others to our movie queue. Thomson, sensitive to film’s innate eroticism, begins in 1887 with Eadweard Muybridge’s One Woman Standing, Another Sitting and Crossing Legs, less film than experiment, featuring the titular women in the nude, before moving on to more contemporary films, such as Sunrise, Pandora’s Box, and the famous lovemaking scene in Don’t Look Now. Moments with Jack Nicholson are featured five times, with four films by Hitchcock, three by Antonioni, and two starring Meg Ryan (really). Thomson is authoritative, yet personal, and includes anecdotes, little-known facts, juicy gossip, and a number of surprise selections (see Ryan, above), especially from the past 20 years. Accompanied by wonderfully evocative stills, this eminently browsable book is certain to delight film lovers. --Ben Segedin Review “A coffee-table book with a brain... Thomson is arguably the best American film critic since Pauline Kael, and almost everything he has to say in “Moments” is savvy and stimulating.” (The Washington Post) “ Moments That Made the Movies , is cinema history cloaked as a coffee-table showpiece. It comes at 70 individual films—usual suspects and irregulars alike— by way of a defining sequence. Whichever his approach, this most offbeat of cinephiles and spot-on of writers shows how the part represents the whole. The consistent delight of Moments , which samples both the thin crust ( When Harry Met Sally . . .) and the deep dish ( The Passenger ), is how Thomson makes the reader see how often the microcosm is both macro and cosmic.” (San Francisco Chronicle) “A marvelous wordsmith with a keen eye, Thomson . . . somehow manages to illustrate his many moments in films both obscure . . . and legendary.” (The Boston Herald) “The Brit transplant's long experience with writing accessible, entertaining, idiosyncratic, erudite and enlightening movie books led him to the most delightful one of all: Moments that Made the Movies . . . . This is a keeper.” (IndieWire.com) “Explores iconic scenes in both classic and contemporary films that were not only enjoyable, but in some way groundbreaking.” (The Huffington Post) “ Moments That Made the Movies is full of assured declarations, chatty asides and free-associative essays. . . . both fun and not a little feverish. . . . Moment by moment, each statement is certainly worth considering, made as it is by a highly respected critic who is appreciated exactly for such a garrulous parade of this-not-that explications.” (New York Times Book Review) “If your imagination is captured by freeze frames . . . movie history might be summed up in film historian David Thomson's Moments That Made the Movies. Films are often encapsulated by single scenes — consider the boulder pursuing Indiana Jones or Joseph Cotten's endless wait at the end of The Third Man—and the ever-sharp Thomson picks several dozen to tell the story of cinema.” (CNN.com) “The idea here is to focus on a series of moments in seventy-two films of particular significance and accompany them with wonderful stills representing those moments.” (The Nation) “Accompanied by wonderfully evocative stills, this eminently browsable book is certain to delight film lovers.” (Booklist/American Library Association) “[A] film-lover's treasure. . . . The book's effect is undeniable, as the reader feels determined to hit the nearest theater.” (Publishers Weekly) “It is fascinating to read why such moments as the airplane scene in North by Northwest , the initiation of Michael Corleone into the family business in The Godfather , the noir mood of the pool scene in Sunset Boulevard , and the café scene in Bonnie and Clyde . . . are important in the history of film. . . . Highly recommended.”” (Library Journal) “Unafraid to stump for lesser-known and lowbrow movies . . . may inspire you to look at the whole medium anew.” (The Week) “Thomson’s . . . moments are captured in a few pages each, with 250 glorious stills accompanying the brief analyses.” (Shelf Awareness) “A visually thrilling tour of the magic of the movies, one special moment at a time.” (American Profile) “This book is both a visual delight and a valuable tool for anyone who enjoys a good movie. ” (Lifestyle Mirror) “Film critic David Thomson is an artist who paints pictures with words. ... What makes Moments special is Thomson’s choices. He doesn’t spotlight the obvious moments. ... In doing so, Thomson reveals unique and telling moments in film history that viewers may have overlooked. Moments That Made the Movies is a treasure-trove that highlights and helps etch many of these films into the minds of cinephiles.” (Lafayette Journal & Courier) “[Thomson’s] basic premise in this beautifully illustrated book is sound—that it is the moments from movies that we retain rather than the whole thing.” (The Buffalo News) “A real treasure.” (Woman Around Town) “Tells of many an incredible filmed moment.” (Short and Sweet NYC) “A lovely visual and written pairing that will be perfect for any film or arts library.” (The Midwest Book Review) “Remarkable. . . . Thomson remains acutely sensitive to the motion picture’s birthplace in the world of still imagery.” (Rangefinder) See all Editorial Reviews

    Editorial Reviews Review Notable African-American Interest Book of 2012-13, Publishers Weekly   ( Publishers Weekly ) “I have three words for Carrie Mae Weems: Three Decades of Photography and Video:  Wow. And wow . This stunning visual chronicle is packed with more than 200 of the Oregonian’s arresting images.”—Patrik Henry Bass,  Essence   (Patrik Henry Bass Essence )  Honorable Mention in the Photography/Art category at the 2012 New England Book Festival. (Photography/Art Honorable Mention New England Book Festival 2013-01-22) Honorable Mention, Photography/Art category at the 2013 San Francisco Book Festival sponsored by the JM Northern Media LLC (San Francisco Book Festival JM Northern Media LLC 2013-05-08) Honorable Mention, Photography/Art category at the 2013 New York Book Festival sponsored by JM Northern Media LLC (New York Book Festival JM Northern Media LLC 2013-06-10) About the Author Kathryn E. Delmez is curator at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Henry Louis Gates Jr. is Alphonse Fletcher University Professor and director of the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research at Harvard University. Franklin Sirmans is Terri and Michael Smooke Curator of Contemporary Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Robert Storr is dean of the Yale School of Art. Deborah Willis is university professor and chair of the department of photography and imaging at the Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.

    The work of contemporary artist Carrie Mae Weems (b. 1953) hits hard with a powerful mix of lived life and social commentary. Since the late 1970s, her photographs, films, and installations have become known for presenting realistic and authentic images of African Americans while confronting themes of race, gender, and class. This book, the first major survey of Weems's career, traces the artist's commitment to addressing issues of social justice through her artwork. Her early photographs, which focused on African American women and families, have since led to work that examines more general aspects of the African diaspora, from the legacy of slavery to the perpetuation of debilitating stereotypes. Increasingly, she has broadened her view to include global struggles for equality and justice. This beautifully illustrated book highlights over 200 of Weems's most important works. Accompanying essays by leading scholars explore Weems's interest in folklore, her focus on the spoken and written word, the performative aspect of her constructed tableaux, and her expressions of black beauty.

    Description

    Editorial Reviews Review "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 About the Author David Chang is the chef and founder of Momofuku, which includes award-winning restaurants in New York City, Sydney, and Toronto. He has been honored as a Time 100, Fortune’s 40 Under 40, and was named a GQ Man of the Year. He lives in New York City. Peter Meehan is a former New York Times restaurant columnist. His writing has appeared in many foreign and domestic magazines and he has coauthored a handful of books, including the bestselling Momofuku cookbook. He lives in New York City. Chris Ying was the publisher of McSweeney's before he assumed the role of editor in chief of Lucky Peach. He is the coauthor of Ivan Ramen and of the forthcoming Mission Chinese Food cookbook. He lives in San Francisco.

    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. Less summary than survey, the street food issue takes to the world’s streets like a starved flâneur, flitting from birria in Mexico City to chicharron-studded tortillas in Buenos Aires, from chaat in Mumbai to gizzard noodle soup in Chiang Mai’s Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. This issue watches as children made stick bread in Copenhagen and shares a report on who’s eating all your cigarette butts (spoiler: microbes). For Jonathan Gold, the experience of eating street food is inseparable from time and place. Issue 10 also delves into the history of “Turkey in the Straw,” an ice-cream truck ditty that rings out across Los Angeles; spends a day with the Doughnut Luchador of East LA (doughnut slinger by day, luchador by night); and learns what happens, exactly, when you cook with charcoal, and what nixtamalizing does to corn. Plus, a look into the wondrous array of street sausages around the globe, the best of the wurst.
