I had the incredible pleasure of photographing Jonathan Gold for Dean & DeLuca’s podcast “Live from Prince Street.”
I got to sit in the back of JGold’s truck and listen to him discuss LA’s culinary history, while stifling my giggles to not ruin the audio recording because JGold was SO FUNNY.
We ate fried chicken for lunch, and JGold gave me his biscuit recipe, for which he imported flour from Kentucky. But mostly we drove around the same 5-block radius as JGold debated where to take us to eat, sharing the history of nearly every restaurant we passed. To the untrained eye, it looked like a typical LA strip mall wasteland, but to Jonathan Gold, it held limitless possibilities.
