    Lucky Peach sure has issues.* In this spectacular double-cover choose-your-own-gender edition, you can explore food from the male and/or female perspectives. It is packed with art, writing, and more of those recipes that I will never make but that understand this fact when they include instructions such as "[Step] 1. What? You don't have pickled mustard seeds on hand?" or "[Step] 1. Cold smoke the shrimp...If you don't have a cold smoker--I'm going to assume that's all of you--you could also not Lucky Peach sure has issues.* In this spectacular double-cover choose-your-own-gender edition, you can explore food from the male and/or female perspectives.

Where was I. No, I will not stop and ask for directions. I'll find my way to the end of this review. The issue steadily shifts tone from sweet and nostalgic and thoughtful to edgy and racy and disturbing. It finally gives you a few ideas for what to do with those stag pizzles that have been sitting in your fridge for ages now. I loved the articles about women who work in the food industry: the Korean haenyo divers, the female butcher's in Ho Chi Minh City, Roberta "Poochie" Roberts, and Alice Waters. There is another great piece by our neighbor John Birdsall. Here's the thing though. The most disturbing part was not cooking with genitalia nor that odd food erotica art section. It was this information which I will hide because once known, you cannot "unlearn" it: (view spoiler)["But in America today, capons [castrated roosters] are practically a historical relic, and roosters are eaten by very few folks--mainly by those trying to preserve traditions that connect to the old country...So what happens to all the little roosters?...'THEY MULCH them.' That image stuck in my head like a scene from Fargo. I thought he must have been overstating the case. But Farm Sanctuary confirmed his story on their website: 'Because male chicks will not grow up to lay eggs and, therefore have little value to the egg industry, 260 million are killed each year upon hatching. Methods include (hide spoiler)] [are you REALLY ready for this? You cannot unlearn this!] (view spoiler)[being sucked through a series of pipes onto an electrified 'kill plate,' being ground up alive and fully conscious in a 'macerator,' or being gassed.' (hide spoiler)] *8 of them so far...but who is counting.

    This was the issue about gender. Got a bunch of stuff to say about it but it is more of a response to the articles and will show up in blog posts. There were some worthwhile reads. It seems that the mag needed to come back from its roots a little and head back into firm foodie territory. It seems to be doing that.

    Food and sex, in a kind of double issue -- girls in one half; flip it over for the boys. This issue's illustrations reached a new high, but sex and its nexus with food must provide plenty of inspiration.

    Some great articles and the female/male division was cutesy. Not very impressed with how they tied the two genders together though, the Sex section needed something more. Recipes: ehh.

    There were some great articles in here! There were also some very awkward ones... Don't show your mother this one! There were some great articles in here! There were also some very awkward ones... Don't show your mother this one!

    Disappointingly, the recipes were mostly for cooked junk. I'm not in a hurry to eat deer schlong. I wouldn't even know where to get it. Disappointingly, the recipes were mostly for cooked junk. I'm not in a hurry to eat deer schlong. I wouldn't even know where to get it.

    In this issue, we learn about boar taint. Yep. Dig the divided gender sections meeting in the middle.

    This magazine keeps doing cool non-magazine stuff. A gender issue with half flipped so you read each half from the front? It's like Mad Magazine for nerds foodies. Meaning: Me.
