Home to more than 140 nationalities and 200 languages, Los Angeles is one of the most diverse cities in the country. California is known for its fusion cuisine, but the past decade has seen a rise in cooking truly grounded in the diaspora. While traditional techniques and flavors are celebrated, immigrants and their children find new expressions of their identities through food. Trucks, popups, meetups, and technology all contribute to the city’s vibrant food culture, and a new generation of chefs and institutions are leading the change.

More people are more comfortable with a wider variety of environments and flavors, and there's also a rise in the status, practice, and appreciation of ingredients and techniques from cultures that have been sharing food here for decades.
