A Gender Issue for “Lucky Peach”

The highbrow food mag tackles men, women, and sex.

In its eighth issue, David Chang and Peter Meehan’s brainchild Lucky Peach, a quarterly food magazine published by McSweeney’s, devotes itself to gender in the kitchen and at the table. Featuring two different covers, male (butternut squash, sausage, carrots) and female (cross-sections of oysters, figs, melons), the issue is split into sections “For Women,” “For Men,” and “Sex.” Topics include cooking stag penises, gay American cooking, and strip-club cuisine. For presumably tamer fare, Chez Panisse chef Alice Waters weighs in on “being a woman in the kitchen.”
