“Seven Gifts from LA Kitchens to the World”
The waves of immigrants to Los Angeles each brought their own tastes in food, and recreated their traditions in their new home. This wasn’t easy because vital ingredients weren’t available, so they had to improvise with things they could grow in California. New cuisines developed that included elements from Europe, Central America, and Asia. This talk traces the waves of migration to Los Angeles and looks at seven items invented in California with inspiration from all over the world.
