Lucky Peach release their Spring 2014 “All You Can Eat” issue. As always, compellingly in-depth and playful food writing grace the pages, from an investigative report on fixed prison meals to a humorous fiction on lobsters. An illustrated timeline of the history of meat consumption teaches us when humans first started eating (uncooked) crocodiles, an all-you-can-eat buffet-hopping trip to Vegas results in the term “Pradarhea,” and an exploration of bananas from around the world yields the discovery of red and blue bananas (respectively from Jamaica and Hawaii, if you wanna know). You can also find almost 20 unique recipes for you to try at home. Purchase the issue here.
