So why did we decide to do a cookbook?

  • To celebrate 100 years of Grand Central Market! GCM opened in 1917 and has been in continuous operation since as downtown’s original gathering place for the cuisines and cultures of Los Angeles. #GCM100
  • To celebrate the vendors and visitors of Grand Central Market, the people who make it what it is today! The GCM Cookbook is an anthology of 80 recipes with contributions from every vendor in the Market—plus a special family recipe from Adele Yellin, president of The Yellin Company, which owns GCM. Nearly 160 photographs of the food and the people of GCM—plus the stalls and the lines and the neon signs—bring the experience to life.
  • Because there’s never been one! For 100 years, what happened in the Market stayed in the Market. But now you can to take home vendor recipes for Eggslut’s signature Slut (coddled eggs with mashed potatoes), Sarita’s pupusas, G&B’s yeasted waffles, Villa Moreliana’s carnitas tacos, Jose Chiquito’s breakfast burrito, McConnell’s cinnamon ice cream, and nearly 75 other Market classics.

The GCM Cookbook was written by GCM’s Adele Yellin and Kevin West, the Market’s co-creative director from 2012-2016, with recipes contributed by every food vendor. Photographer Johnny Autry shot the pictures over a week in the Market in January. His trip coincided almost to the hour with a “pineapple express” that dumped floods on Los Angeles, but somehow you’d never know from the pictures that he was shooting in the rain. Johnny and food stylist Charlotte Autry (who is also Johnny’s wife) then took the recipes into their studio to create the amazing food “portraits” that accompany the recipes.

The book’s October release coincides with the Market’s other 100th anniversary celebrations.
