Hmm, I subscribed a while back, got issue 1 from Amazon but still waiting on issue #2...
Funny. I bought the first issue at B&N, and ordered the second one from Amazon as soon as I read (here) that it was out. Got it in two days. I haven't had a chance to sit down with it, but if it's anything like the first issue, I will devour it in one sitting.
It's fun to leave it out on the coffee table and watch people's reactions when they pick it up and start to leaf through it.

There was certainly some fluff (I mean, in some ways, it's a lifestyle magazine as much as anything), but the article on miso types, kimchi, Japanese knives (if you're a neophyte), foams and dry aging were all good solid articles, I thought. Not the most in-depth pieces of their type, perhaps, but solid. I've also really come to appreciate the literary excerpts at the end of the magazine. They may be reprints, but if they're reprints of things I've never read before, I'm not bothered by it!
i must have put it down too soon...i don't think i read those!

I didn't get any further than idly thinking, "I should look into getting those books." Sad to hear that they're not widely available.
Yes! - the Russell Chatham reprints in the back were new to me and quite enjoyable. Of course I went on line to see about getting the books and a brief search yielded only very pricey options.....

I would agree with you. I believe I liked the first issue better than the second, but the second was still very good. Maybe it was because the first issue was so "out of the box" and fresh, and the second one needed to be even more so.....but we were already expecting that.

Lucky Peach #3 arrived today and I think it is the best one by far. I have already pre-ordered #4! Write on...
That's interesting. My reaction so far (admittedly only 80% through) has been the complete opposite. I have seen a lot of the content about chefs (hours, culinary school a rip off, the good/bad old days etc) from other places so those articles were not particularly interesting to me. The one article that I did particularly enjoy was about the military cook. That is a side of the cooking industry that is rarely discussed and I found it fascinating.

Why is the first issue 150$, yikes! Wish mine was in good enough shape to sell, I'd make my subscription money back.

font and I find it super frustrating to read. The articles themselves rock. I have issue #1 in near mine condition...hum. I
do know that these are magazines that I won't be passing along to the local book sale or putting in the library free rack!

I definitely agree issue #3 was a much better read than issue #2.

I got 3, tried to start reading it, forgot I was reading it, misplaced it, and now I'm not sure if I can review it other to say it didn't hold my attention.

Arghhhh! Left my copy of issue 2 on the plane. I'd only read the corrections comic strip
Just think how happy you made another passenger or air steward though!
Wow the prices for issue 1 are ridiculous, Will this happen to subsequent ones? Worth stocking up now for future massive profits?
Posted 07 July 2012 - 09:12 AM
Is issue 1 actually selling at those prices, or are they simply the prices being asked? Big difference...

Edited to add: it was $8 last time I looked! Could kick myself.
