City of Gold
City of Gold chronicles Pulitzer Prize-winning restaurant critic Jonathan Gold's relationship with the food and culture of Los Angeles. Gold has long been known for his robust writing about the hidden culinary treasures in LA and here the rigour, knowledge and compassion that makes Jonathan's style of criticism stand apart is explored. Jonathan maps Los Angeles through his Odyssey-like quests for new food experiences so that we too can discover and understand the city. Featured in the film are Roy Choi, David Chang, and Ludo Lefebvre, as well as the chefs and owners behind some of Gold's favourites: Jitlada (Thai), Guelaguetza (Oaxacan), Meals by Genet (Ethiopian), and Chengdu Taste (Sichuan). City of Gold offers the rare opportunity to see Los Angeles through the eyes of its foremost cultural writer, and most loyal fan.
