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 Jonathan’s truck and listen to him discuss LA’s culinary history, while stifling my giggles to not ruin the audio recording because Jonathan was so witty and funny.
We ate fried chicken for lunch, and Jonathan gave me his biscuit recipe, for which he imported flour from Kentucky. But mostly we drove around the same 5-block radius as Jonathan debated where to take us to eat, sharing the history of nearly every restaurant we passed. To the untrained eye, it looked like what some would call an “LA strip mall wasteland,” but to Jonathan Gold, it held limitless possibilities.
