On Monday, Doug’s chatting with Peter Meehan and Chris Ying, the editors of Lucky Peach magazine, about American food. It’s an admittedly hard topic to nail down. There’s diner food, of course. Fried chicken, sandwiches and sausages. But we’ll also consider the All-American cast-iron pan and Native American food, and food’s prominent place in American film and the oeuvre of Andy Warhol. Doug, Peter, Chris (and, just maybe, a special guest) will try to get to the bottom of what makes American food American.
The newest issue of Lucky Peach is on newsstands now. To order a copy of the magazine, visit Lucky Peach's web site.
