Chefs have been getting plenty of silver screen time in the past year (Jiro Dreams of Sushi, elBulli: Cooking in Progress), and it looks like food critics might be next. Hollywood Reporter reports that LA Times food critic Jonathan Gold will be starring in a documentary directed by Laura Gabbert (No Impact Man).
The project will reportedly explore Gold's adventures in discovering "offbeat eateries" in Los Angeles. "I loved Laura’s film Sunset Story," Gold said in a statement. "So when she approached me about making a film using me as a prism through which to look at food as a prism looking at Los Angeles, it sounded like a good idea."
No word on whether Gold will be sporting a disguise throughout the film, but he does say in the statement, "You wouldn’t believe how fetching I look in a burqa."
Gold has already appeared in a documentary called How to Live Forever where he waxes poetic about tacos from Chabelita in Los Angeles, sans crazy disguise. Check out the clip from How to Live Forever below.
