AMELIA LESTER, jour­nal­ist Lucky streak, p84

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Contributors -

Aus­tralian jour­nal­ist Amelia Lester spent a decade eat­ing her way around the Big Ap­ple as an edi­tor and writer at The

New Yorker. She re­mem­bers the first time Lucky Peach mag­a­zine, which she writes about in this is­sue, ar­rived at her Times Square of­fice in 2011. “It was a print pub­li­ca­tion which, against all odds, de­fined the times,” says Lester, who re­cently moved from the US to Ja­pan. “Just when restau­ra­teurs be­came rock stars, Lucky Peach was the new Rolling Stone.”
