On this week’s episode of The Morning After, Jessie and Sari are joined by Jonathan Gold of the Los Angeles Times who, in 2007, became the first food critic to win the Pulitzer Prize. He is also the subject of the new documentary City of Gold, which follows his exploration of the culinary culture of Los Angeles. Tune in to hear them discuss food as a cultural product, the rise of chefs as restaurant owners, and Jonathan’s desert island dish.


“We all live life surrounded by artifacts of culture, and the way to understanding, I think, is being able to connect one to the other.” [24:00] – Jonathan Gold
