Los Angeles Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold died Saturday at 57. He celebrated street food, food trucks and family run restaurants in strip malls — not merely fine dining.

Host Jeremy Hobson remembers Gold, the first food critic to win a Pulitzer Prize, with Here & Now resident chef Kathy Gunst (@mainecook).
