The Los Angeles Times will host a gathering to remember the newspaper’s late food critic Jonathan Gold on Sunday in downtown Los Angeles, featuring food trucks, remembrances from family and friends and unseen footage shot for the documentary about his life, "City of Gold."
The evening event includes tributes from Gold's younger brother Mark Gold; Evan Kleiman, the host of KCRW-FM's "Good Food"; City Councilman Jose Huizar; Carolina Miranda, a Times culture columnist; Sang Yoon, chef of Lukshon; Michael Cimarusti, chef of Providence; and Bricia Lopez, a proprietor of Guelaguetza.
The event, which is free of charge, begins at 5:30 p.m. in Grand Park with a DJ set from KCRW's Anthony Valadez. There will also be food trucks, including Carnitas El Momo and Los Originales Tacos Arabes de Puebla.
Gold died July 21 of pancreatic cancer at 57. He wrote about food in Los Angeles for four decades, bringing new attention to street food and small, mom-and-pop restaurants opened by immigrants.
