Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Jonathan Gold is a food writer like no other, passionately celebrating the glorious culinary diversity of multicultural Los Angeles, from Oaxacan grasshopper soup to hand-cut tonkotsu ramen to a particularly unctuous pad see ew. Combing through colorful neighborhoods in his green pickup, Gold sniffs out his next strip-mall discovery and, in the process, uncovers stories of immigrants whose family recipes are helping them build a new American Dream. With inexhaustible curiosity and razor-sharp intellect, Gold opens Angelenos’ eyes to the mouth-watering world around them.
