As first spotted on Twitter, here's the cover of the upcoming cookbook from indie food magazine Lucky Peach. Titled Lucky Peach 101 Easy Asian Recipes, it's written by the magazine's editor Peter Meehan and will be published by Clarkson Potter. The cover is reminiscent of an old school food magazine and features plates of dumplings, a take out container-turned-planter, and a kitschy maneki neko, or lucky cat. The book will be released October 27.
