LA Weekly’s Jonathan Gold was the first restaurant critic to win a Pulitzer Prize. Although he covers all types of cuisine, he often chooses small, ethnic restaurants for his reviews. A collection of his articles can be found in his book, Counter Intelligence: Where to Eat in the Real Los Angeles.
Aspiring chefs take note! Bernstein’s La Bonne Cuisine includes recipes for Plum Pudding and Oxtail from Madame Saint-Ange’s famous 1927 cookbook. However, consider the ingredients of Bolcom’s hilarious Surprise before you serve it to your guests. Soprano Elissa Johnston reveals all. In this artfully designed musical feast, Andres’ Sorbet cleanses the palate before the main course: the virtuosic Sextet Dohnányi wrote in the tradition of Brahms.
