Spawned two years ago from the creatively devious minds of chef David Chang and writer Peter Meehan, Lucky Peach, the quarterly food magazine (published by McSweeney’s) with a cult following, has proved that long-form food writing is still vibrant. The magazine’s seventh issue focuses on a single theme: travel. Featuring articles such as the history of curry, visiting the most beautiful Taco Bell in the world, and helpful tips on how to avoid getting diarrhea while traveling, Lucky Peach will be the culprit behind your sudden itch to hop on a plane. At the issue’s launch party, travel secrets will be revealed by a panel of contributors. But don’t go on an empty stomach: Food will not be served (and isn’t that just a little bit evil?).
