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.

Lucky Peach #13, our “Feel the Joy” issue, arrives just in time for the holiday season. Like Dorie Greenspan, the high priestess of holiday (and year-round) baking, we’re indiscriminate lovers of all holidays. This issue’s educational: there’s fiction from Anthony Bourdain, with real advice on how not to ruin a turkey dinner (hint: two turkeys), and recipes for recreating Peter Meehan’s traditional Christmas Eve Feast of the One Fishes (that’s lobster rolls). Our celebrations take us all around the world, from a halal butcher shop in New York’s East Village to Haiti, where Adam Gollner celebrates with Vodounistes. We learn from a mithai master at a sweets shop in London, celebrate Christmas in India, home of some of the world’s oldest Christian communities, and marvel at mountains of food in Indonesia, where celebrations are marked by gunangans (food mountains). We learn the science behind what happens when we overeat; plus plans for how to build your own gingerbread mansion and cocktail cures for what ails you.

I really like this magazine/book I really like this magazine/book. The stories are interesting. It’s not your typical food magazine it gives the reader much more than recipes , it gives you insight into the whole food experience. Also, I’m a sucker for any Christmas issue of any magazine. I have saved back issues of every Christmas mag I’ve bought since 1980, maybe longer. This will be a great addition to my collection.
