Now Tila has added the title Culinary Ambassador to Thailand to his resume.
“It’s a position that the Thai Consulate General in L.A. and I came up with,” says Tila. “I don’t think there’s a singular spokesperson for Thai food and I think we need that. We need someone that has media experience, that has journalism experience and has operations experience. My job is to wave the flag for Thai food. When people like yourselves [food writers] that have an audience that want to know, 'What is Thai food?' we’ve got a voice that understands it and that can address it,” says Tila.

Jet Tila spoke to LA Weekly at the LA Food and Wine Festival about why LA is the greatest food city in America. Check out his answer below and see what other LA chefs had to say here.
Jet Tila, ChefJet
I love that we have an annual food and wine festival here; many other cities in America celebrate their restaurant scene, but I’m a native Angeleno, and I think it’s important that we revel in our landscape here too. This is the only city in America where you can drive through seven countries in 15 miles — Thai Town, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, Filipinotown, etc. There is no other city that has that kind of diversity in such a tight-knit area.
