ABOUT THIS BOX
This week’s Narrative Provision’s box is one from our archives. It originally was created in anticipation of the (then) upcoming release of City of Gold. which celebrated the culinary landscape of Los Angeles as seen through the eyes of Jonathan Gold, our favorite Pulitzer Prize-winning culinary geographer who redefined the art of the meal and the joy of food criticism.
Throughout his tenure at the Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly and Gourmet, along with his contributions to KCRW’s Good Food, Gold exposed food lovers across Los Angeles to local jewels — the many exquisite kitchens and restaurants that are often tucked away, far from the beaten path, where master chefs turn their cuisine into culinary feasts as well as a cultural events. As Gold’s writings transport us, director Laura Gabbert brings his palate to life. Her Sundance-selected documentary “City of Gold” is a gastronomic treat and travelogue with Jonathan Gold as he combed through colorful neighborhoods in his green pickup truck, sniffing out his next strip-mall discovery — Oaxacan grasshopper soup, hand-cut tonkotsu ramen, and a particularly unctuous pad see ew.
Our City of Gold inspired Narrative Provisions Box puts the pickup truck at your fingertips as it reaches for the critic’s most cherished authentic food discoveries. You’ll enjoy recipes and ingredients to cook Black Bean Soup with Coriander Cream with an Oaxacan mole sauce from Guelaguetza, Roy Choi’s Kogi Dogs, Pad Thai with a sauce from Ayara Thai, a Szechuan rice bowl, and Ludo Lefebre’s Roasted Carrot Salad.
