DOWNTOWN CENTRAL LIBRARY - Author Elisa Callow: The Urban Forager

Culinary Cooking & Exploring on L.A.’s Eastside

UrbanForager Cover

Elisa Callow will be in conversation with Mario Rodriguez, excellent home cook and contributor to The Urban Forager cookbook.

The Urban Forager showcases one of California’s richest and most rapidly expanding culinary cultures: the eastside of Los Angeles. Food makers representing the eastside’s diverse traditions share beloved personal recipes, ingredients, innovations, and neighborhood resources. A hands-on, stunningly photographed collection of inspiring recipes, profiles, and references for novice and adventurous home cooks and the culinarily curious, it includes conversations with Sumi Chang (Europane) and Minh Phan (Porridge and Puffs), as well as such acclaimed home cooks as Mario Rodriguez, Rumi Mahmood, and Jack Aghoian. Part cookbook, part guide to foraging the best LA has to offer, The Urban Forager is a compelling bridge to the unfamiliar, inspiring readers to enrich their culinary repertoire with delicious new discoveries.

ABOUT

Elisa Callow shares her recipes and food discoveries on her blog, The Urban Forager. The former founding director of the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena, California, she is a consultant in the nonprofit world with a focus on the arts and education.

Mario Rodriguez, a lifelong food maker and self-taught “food anthropologist,” credits family members as his first and most influential entry into cooking. A graduate of the Pro Cooking program at the New School of Cooking, he is a fearless home cook, working with equal confidence alongside friend and French-trained chef David Feau, his mother, his tias, and his abuelitas. As a supervising social worker for Los Angeles County, Mario's work-related travels allow him to indulge in a childhood habit of food explorations begun with his dad, Chuy, an experience that introduced him to the brilliant diversity of Los Angeles’ food culture.
