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.
