The Lucky Peach Cookbook is Great: A Few Of Our Favorite Recipes

We’ve been turning to the brand-new cookbook from Lucky Peach almost daily in the past few weeks: They’ve managed to take some theoretically difficult Asian concepts and make them really accessible and easy, without sacrificing any of the taste—not always a simple thing to do. While everything that we’ve tried is great and full of authentic flavor, the recipes below are a few favorites so far.
