The fourth issue of Lucky Peach covers American Food—if not comprehensively, at least enthusiastically. We’ve got David Simon, creator of The Wire and Treme, remembering his father via pickles and cream; a meeting of America’s most celebrated food minds—LA’s Jonathan Gold and New York’s Robert Sietsema—discussing “American cuisine” over Kansas City barbecue; writer/producer/director Brian Koppelman letting us in on what Diner means to him; an illustrated look into sushi in the USA; and a “Choose Your Own Adventure”-style hunt for tacos through Texas and California. And if you’ve ever wanted to make your own mortadella, seaweed burger, or monkfish tripe, you’re in luck: we’ve got recipes from Marco Canora, Wylie Dufresne, and Jonathan Benno to guide the way.
