L. A. SON: My Life, My City, My Food; My Life, My City, My Food

New York: Harper Collins, 2013. First Edition. Hardcover. 340 pages. 23.5 x 19.5 cm. Presentation copy, with two photos of Choi signing book. Abounding with both the food and the stories that gave rise to Choi's inspired cooking, L.A. Son takes us through the neighborhoods and streets most tourists never see, from the hidden casinos where gamblers slurp fragrant bowls of pho to Downtown's Jewelry District, where a ten-year-old Choi wolfed down Jewish deli classics between diamond deliveries; from the kitchen of his parents' Korean restaurant and his mother's pungent kimchi to the boulevards of East L.A. and the best tacquerias in the country, to at last, the curbside view from one of his emblematic Kogi taco trucks, where people from all walks of life line up for a revolutionary meal. Photography by Bobby Fisher. Color illustrated boards. Very good. Item #1882

Price: $35.00
