Photos, Food, & More from the Los Angeles Times Food Bowl Night Market 2022

Another year, another incredible Los Angeles Times Food Bowl. A fantastic month-long series of nights celebrating local restaurants, innovative chefs, and fine wine in locations all over town. The finale of every Food Bowl? A weekend of Night Markets on the legendary Paramount Pictures Studios backlot. We were there on Saturday evening for their delectable Dumpling Crawl and again on Sunday afternoon for their hearty Backlot Brunch. While we had to skip night one, we’re told the “Smoked Soiree” was a rollicking good time with many of the same restaurants and chefs from Saturday and Sunday. That night was a classic celebration of the cities renowned food scene, highlighting top chefs, pitmasters, burger barons and grilling experts who gave patrons tasty food options to see first-hand what makes them so special.

We opted for the more vegetarian-friendly nights two and three, but all three days absolutely had something for everyone no matter your tastes or dietary restrictions. The Dumpling Crawl included celebrity guests such as Megan Mullaly and Nick Offerman who enjoyed  the Live Demo hosted by Chef Matty Matheson and Culinary Producer Courtney Storer of the hit television series The Bear on FX. We also enjoyed bites from chefs such as Kevin Bludso of Bludso’s BBQ and Eric Greenspan of Mr. Beast Burger. Night 2 Saturday we celebrated the city’s renowned food scene by highlighting the diverse flavors of L.A. We sampled a smorgasbord of global cuisines for an experience that is quintessentially L.A. The Crawl was curated by L.A. Times food columnist Jenn Harrisinspired by her new series “The Bucket List: Dumplings!” with dumplings from CHD Mandu, Go Go Gyoza, Hui Tou Xiang, Lunasia Dim Sum House, Paradise Dynasty (VIP Only), Monta Factory, and more!

On Sunday we celebrated with the Backlot Brunch by feasting upon L.A.’s greatest brunches from west side surf to old school Hollywood glamour.  The highlight of the afternoon was Duff Goldman, who is best known for the hit Food Network show Ace of Cakes, where his team of pastry chefs and artists at Charm City Cakes create spectacular custom cakes. Duff let us into the wonderful world of baking with his delicious baking demonstration.
