Discussion: 6:30 pm
“LA History on Your Plate” with Jonathan Gold, Bricia Lopez and Josh Kun
Once upon a time, Angelenos grew what they ate. But WWII Japanese internments whisked accomplished growers off the land, and by the 1950s, aside from some fancy New York-style eateries, food culture was bleak. New immigrants brought delicious unknowns in the ’60s, and casual chic cuisine emerged in the ’70s. The cheeseburger, fortune cookie, French dip, Chinese chicken salad – all L.A. creations. Find out how the most diverse city in the nation became its foodie capital.
