Check out this cover by Cannaday Chapman for The New Yorker‘s Food & Travel issue.

“For me, one of the finest things about traveling is trying new and exotic foods,” Cannaday says, about the inspiration for his cover.

Chapman recently returned from Argentina, where he ate “a whole lot of steaks and the best pork chops I ever had,” but has never visited China. “Everyone says they have the best street food,” he adds. “My Chinese friend was trying to get me there, describing the seahorses and also scorpions, lots of bugs. I’m told they taste like crab or lobster, which makes sense. Those are just sea bugs.”
