3/13/12: Lucky Peach - The Cooks & Chefs Issue

On Tuesday, Doug is joined once again by Peter Meehan and Chris Ying, editors of the food magazine Lucky Peach. The newest issue of the magazine explores the world of cooks and chefs -- from three-star Michelin restaurants, to street cooks in Thailand, even an elementary school cafeteria and a military dining hall. Ying and Meehan will give us a guided tour to the inner-sanctums of celebrity chefs, explore the intersection of food and fashion, and discuss the influence of molecular gastronomy.
