Issue #17


This winter’s issue of Lucky Peach is a chance to reacquaint yourself with the pleasures of breakfast.

Follow along, as we survey breakfasts around the world, in a feature called It’s 8 A.M. Somewhere. Inside: Naomi Duguid writes about the comfort of bread and tea in Iran; Philip Gourevitch tells tales of mornings in Rwanda; Mary H.K. Choi talks up breakfast tacos in Texas. Writers, artists, and the editors reported on the most important meal of the day from nineteen more locales, too, with advice on different ways to break your fast in Tokyo and how to keep eggs fresh for eight months the next time you’re wintering in the south pole. The issue covers coffee (the real reason people eat breakfast) two different ways—through the eyes of the always illuminating Harold McGee, and an in-depth profile of coffee shaman George Howell. Plus, the resurgence of the New York bagel is explored in extensive and photographic detail.
