This is what Bourdain said about Jonathan Gold:

Bourdain wrote about Gold, who was then at L.A. Weekly. (Gold subsequently moved onto the Los Angeles Times.) “Jonathan Gold, the food writer for L.A. Weekly, is a hero. I’m hardly the first to notice. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his dedicated and pioneering coverage of all those places in the L.A. area that nobody had ever covered before. (His award was the first for a food writer.) He gave them respect, treating little mom-and-pop noodle shops in strip malls with a degree of importance they hadn’t enjoyed before.”

Bourdain added, “He helped give a ‘legitimacy’ to serious critical analyses of Thai, Vietnamese, inexpensive Mexican, and less appreciated regional cuisines, which hadn’t really existed before. He put them on a par with fine dining and wrote about them with as much — if not more — enthusiasm, helping to usher in a (very useful) kind of reverse snobbism, a skepticism about fine dining that has only been helpful and a good thing in the long run.”  MORE HERE

And HERE for Anthony Bourdain

Episode 38 of Paris GOODfood+wine features a few of the Best of Season 4. In this show we hear excerpts from my original interviews with Jamiee Anderson , the wine director from La Reserve Hotel & Spa here in Paris, who talks to us about food and wine pairings; then from Dirty Dick’s Tiki bar owner, Pigalle’s very own Scott Schuder; we then go to Steven Spurrier, a fixture on the French and English wine scene, and a consultant editor for Decanter ; then we switch to Victoire de Taillac who, along with her husband, opened the Grand Café Tortoni in the upper Marais last fall; and lastly (but not least!) is an excerpt from my interview earlier this year with two Michelin star chef, Sylvestre Wahid.

This episode of Paris GOOD food+wine is a tribute to two of our finest culinary critics who recently passed away : Anthony Bourdain and Jonathan Gold. Bourdain, of course, was the host of No Reservations and Parts Unknown,  food and travel shows that became embedded in people’s hearts. That Bourdain passed away here in France, makes it all the more poignant. And then only just a few days ago, Jonathan Gold of the Los Angeles Times and Good Food radio show fame, also left us. He was a Pulitzer prize winning food journalist and a staple on the Los Angeles restaurant scene.
