Planning to see Patti Smith, Rodrigo y Gabriela, or another great show at The Ford this season? Aka The John Anson Ford Theatre, The Ford launches its 2021 season on July 30, as the Beat’s own Ted Kane wrote about recently. The Ford has just announced its new culinary partnership with Jocelyn Ramirez of Todo Verde.
One of the top vendors at Smorgasburg LA, Ramirez is known for creating flavorful, healthy plant-based dishes inspired by her Mexican and South American roots.
At Todo Verde at the Terrace, Ford attendees will be able to purchase three types of tacos: jackfruit carnitas con pipian verde, mushroom y mole, and chorizo-spiced-seared mushroom. Also available: hearts of palm ceviche; mulita (house-made cashew cheese melted between blue corn tortillas with house-made plant-based “chorizo,” cashew crema, and pickled red onion); nachos made with house-made plant-based nacho cheese and plant-based “chorizo” or jackfruit, plus cashew crema and pico de gallo; and poblano mac y cheese made with cashew queso.
Also available: black rice horchata, strawberry rose agua frescas, craft beers from Tijuana and San Diego, natural wines, and plant-based cheesecake and pudding.
At The Ford’s Grab & Go Market, you can buy dishes from some of Ramirez’s favorite local businesses. Catering to carnivores, pescatarians, and plant-based eaters alike, you’ll find burritos from George’s Boyle Heights; Korean fried chicken from Seoul Sausage; eggplant and scallion or green curry shrimp and potato from Bridgetown Roti; Caesar Salad or Southwestern Chicken Salad from Toss It Up; French ham and butter sandwich from Maison Matho; musubi from Mama Musubi; sushi rolls from Plantae Sushi, and more. Desserts, local craft beers, and natural wines are also available.
