Two writers have gathered the stories of women who changed history through food. There’s a new documentary on how LA’s agricultural past informs its present. Patricia Escárcega returns to discuss a new “Pan-Latin” restaurant in DTLA. A crop scientist is skeptical about the “ugly produce” business, and we also explore the range of life experiences in one LA neighborhood.
