An intimate culinary portrait of Los Angeles today—a city now recognized among food lovers for its booming, vibrant, international restaurant landscape—with 100 recipes from its restaurants, juice bars, coffee shops, cocktail lounges, food trucks, and hole-in-the-wall gems.

Once considered a culinary wasteland, Los Angeles is now one of the most exciting food cities in the world. Like the multi-faceted, sprawling city itself, the food of Los Angeles is utterly its own, an amalgam of international influence, disposable income, glamour, competition, immigrant vitality, health consciousness, purity, and beach-loving, laid back, hip, unrestrained creativity. With 100 recipes pulled from the city’s best restaurants but retooled for the home cooklike Charred Cucumber Gazpacho, Roast Chicken with Spicy Harissa, Vietnamese Coffee Pudding, Blackberry Mint Mojito Ice Cream and Thai Basil MargaritasEAT. COOK. L.A.; Notes and Recipes from the City of Angels is both a culinary roadmap and a sophisticated insider’s look at one of America’s most iconic and fascinating cities.

“Food writer Crapanzano (The London Cookbook) is a New Yorker with the culinary heart and soul of an Angeleno. Here she considers the menus of restaurants, coffee and juice bars, and food trucks from across L.A. to present 80 excellent recipes that focus on simplicity, freshness, and bright flavors. . . The City of Angels takes flight in this vibrant survey of its diverse cuisine.”
– PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“In EAT. COOK. L.A., Aleksandra Crapanzano deftly explains the real reason we love to eat in L.A. restaurants: they have the best home-style cooking in America. The city’s obsession with all things casual and healthy means that its chefs are dishing out seasonal vegetables with romesco, cornmeal pancakes with turmeric butter, and chocolate sesame cake, a wildly exciting sprawl of restaurant dishes you can cook at home. Better still, Aleksandra, through her wide-ranging curiosity and engaging voice, makes you want to race to the kitchen. Her stunning book captures a moment in cooking that we’re all going to want to embrace–and preserve!”
—Amanda Hesser, cofounder and CEO of Food52

“The L.A.-centric recipes you want right now! With chefs building on rich immigrant cultures, dynamic ingredient combinations, and bountiful markets, Aleksandra’s book showcases the recipes that make L.A. one of the most exciting places, anywhere, to eat.”
—Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Cooking
