Screening of City of Gold and Q&A with Jonathan Gold at the Hammer Museum

Hammer Museum

10899 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90024



City of Gold with a Jonathan Gold Q & A

Wednesday, February 24, 7:30PM

Some restaurant critics get ink traversing the globe; Jonathan Gold forged a more challenging route; the San Gabriel Valley hole-in-the-wall, a dull strip mall closer to home, a food truck that presaged the fad.  Gold teases Angelenos' tongues by mining culinary greatness in offbeat locales as he serves up vats of knowledge on global cuisine.  City of Gold captures the proces that won the Gold the Pulitzer Prize.  It will be followed by a Q&A with Jonathan.

From the Sundance website about the film: 

In this richly penetrating documentary odyssey, Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold shows us a Los Angeles where ethnic cooking is a kaleidoscopic portal to the mysteries of an unwieldy city and the soul of America.

Combing through colorful neighborhoods in his green pickup truck, Gold is sniffing out his next strip-mall discovery—whether Oaxacan grasshopper soup, hand-cut tonkotsu ramen, or a particularly unctuous pad see ew. As piping-hot platters are served up, so are stories of immigrants whose secret family recipes are like sacred offerings pledged for the opportunity to build their American Dream. With eternal curiosity, razor-sharp intellect, and existential longing, Gold is a culinary geographer taking us where no critic has gone before.
