Los Angeles IS A Food City!

Friday, December 16, 2011
This year, the rest of the country recognized what Angelenos have known for years: Los Angeles is a food city!

In a Reuters piece from earlier this year, Saveur magazine's editor-in-chief James Oseland sung our city's praises. "The way the global food cultures casually converge in the place makes for a vigorous food culture that exists nowhere else on the planet," said Oseland. "LA really is the food city of the moment."

Some of the nation's most recognizable culinary stars like Ludo Lefebvre, Suzanne Goin, Roy Choi, Nancy Silverton, Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo, and Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger make their home here, and we have the privilege of eating their cooking any time we care to, as opposed to just watching them longingly on TV.
