The summer issue of Lapham's Quarterly is all about food — specifically, about all ways of experiencing food, from the political to the aesthetic. Divided into categories (Feast or Famine, Chefs and Gourmands, and Dishes and Ingredients, plus the magazine's regular departments, such as Essays), the issue includes food writing both new and classic, from such luminaries as M. F. K. Fisher, Michael Pollan, Madhur Jaffrey, Ruth Reichl, and Anthony Bourdain. (Alas, the mashup Ruth Bourdain does not make an appearance.) Much of it is available online, if you don't feel like tracking down the heavy paper original. But check it out nonetheless.
