Lucky Peach uses food as a filter to tell stories about people, places, traditions, flavors, shared experiences, and cultural identities. Smart, thoughtful writing and influential design have made Lucky Peach’s quarterly magazine one of the world’s most trusted and fiercely loved culinary resources.

In the past two years, Lucky Peach has expanded its mission with a (now award-winning) website, cookbooks, and live events, helping it to reach a wider audience of cooks and diners seeking an inclusive, irreverent, and authoritative approach to cooking, eating, and entertaining.

"The outlet has distinguished its digital presence as a knowledge-based counterpart to the voice-, story-, and language-based enthusiasms of its print edition. On, you can learn how to make ramen-fried chicken from David Chang himself, without either Chang’s technical mastery or the original defining essence of Lucky Peach getting short shrift." —James Beard Foundation

Over the past several years, Lucky Peach events have become engaging rallying points for the food media world. 

Lucky Peach events bring the brand to life. From large scale festivals for the general public to intimate gatherings for influencers in the food and beverage industry, Lucky Peach events bring our distinctive brand to life by connecting chefs, food obsessives, artists, musicians, and media in new and unique ways.  Each of our events has sold out–tastings, readings, performances, parties, pop-ups–and our audience remains hungry for more.
