Congratulations on winning the first-ever Pulitzer prize for food criticism to L.A.'s own Jonathan Gold, who extols taco trucks and Korean offal as well ...if not better...than he describes top tier restaurants. The Pulitzer committee cited his "zestful, wide ranging restaurant reviews, expressing the delight of an erudite eater."
Not to diminish the award at all, but it probably didn't hurt that two of the Criticism jury members, film critic and Pulitzer winner Joe Morgenstern and USC's Sasha Anawalt are based in L.A. I've been a fan for a very long time...in fact, I recently unearthed a handwritten letter Jonathan sent me in the late '80s, recommending I try some barbecued pig uterus. Way to go, JG and the L.A. Weekly!
