Thanks, Lucky Peach, for giving us a sneak peek of the cover of your 9th issue (which just so happens to be the magazine’s second Cooks & Chefs issue). According to the Lucky Peach Tumblr, chefs featured in the food issue include Claudia Fleming, Daniel Boulud, and Michael Anthony. Columnists include Jonathan Gold, artist Lisa Hanawalt, and Francis Lam.

Also, “there’s a magazine inside the magazine, like a Russian nesting doll: with content culled from René Redzepi’s annual MAD food conference, which Lucky Peach had the honor of co-curating.” We can’t wait to get our hands on an issue when it comes out November 26.
