Le Fooding, the Paris-based guidebook searching for the honest core in contemporary French cuisine, held its first event in Los Angeles this weekend. Subdued soirees held on Friday and Saturday nights on the front lawn of MOCA, Le Fooding curated a small selection of local chefs and Parisian imports to cook side-by-side, making use of sublime California ingredients for small servings like Roy Choi's remix of his famous Kogi tacos, pulled lamb sliders from Frenchie's Gregory Marchand, and a drinkable pizza coming from the collaboration between Jean-Francois Piege and Chateau Marmont chef Carolynn Spence. Over a curious soundtrack, we lurked around Friday night's festivities to see who and what Le Fooding was crushing on in Los Angeles. Come take a peek at the chefs and dishes in our slide show look back at Le Grand Fooding Crush L.A.'s opening night.
