..but two of my very favourite things are coming together in print in June. Meet McSweeney's latest: Lucky Peach, a quarterly food journal edited by only some of the finest in food writing--Anthony Bourdain, David Chang, Peter Meehan, and Chris Ying. I love McSweeney's dearly--they've brought such spectacular things to print as Dave Eggers' Zeitoun, Darin Strauss' Half a Life, and, of course, the McSweeney's Quarterly (the last issue of which came boxed in a delightfully pink head)--and the announcement made today is just one more reason to gush like a school-girl about the quirky brilliance that is McSweeney's. The first issue's theme is ramen. Naturally, there will be recipes and gorgeous photography. It will also feature pieces by such luminaries as Ruth Reichl and John T. Edge. And, of course, bearing Bourdain's stamp, it couldn't be without "a booze-fueled rant on mediocrity in American cuisine." Needless to say, I've already put in for a subscription.
