Are Celebrity Chefs Good For Food?

[caption id=“” align=“aligncenter” width=“500” caption=“Chef Ludo Lefebvre: A Resident Celebrity Chef”][/caption] It’s been joked that Food Network is the new MTV. Whether personalities matter more than actual cooking skill or music, we all know that the former makes for better reality TV. And what it has yielded, in part, is a chef celebrity culture that hits close to home for Los Angeles and abroad. It’s a culture that reaps rewards that we as diners and consumers personally experience - whether it’s when we are in the cookbook section, watch TV, make local fine dining outings or shop at the grocery store when we compare labels on bottled sauces. Jonathan Gold, the Pulizer Prize-winning LA Weekly food critic, will be moderating a star chef panel which includes including Nancy Silverton of Mozza and “Top Chef Masters” star Susan Feniger of Street. At this Zocalo Public Square event, find out how famous foodies shape what we cook, how we eat, and the future of high cuisine.
