The New Potato Interview

ELIJAH-WOOD-THENEWPOTATO-2

Thanks to Elijah Wood’s facebook, he posted a new article. Photos were taken at Mother Dough, a restaurant based here in Los Angeles.

When we asked Elijah Wood for restaurants he’d like to be photographed at in Los Angeles, he took some time to decide. The actor is a foodie at heart, and after much deliberation decided to take us for Neapolitan pizza in LA at Mother Dough, his favorite.

Wood’s most recent project, a thriller called Open Windows, was released this past Friday, and us fantastical potato-heads of course couldn’t help but still be starstruck by the lead of the Lord of The Rings trilogy. After wrapping up Wilfred, Wood has a number of projects in the works, one being eating his way around LA – and the rest of the world (he was off to Istanbul the day after we sat down with him). Peruse the interview for his favorite food haunts, LOTR memories, advice from Peter Jackson and pre and post shoot habits…

From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?

There are so many different combinations that I could choose that would make for an ideal day of eating. I’ll choose one city: Austin, Texas.

Breakfast: Breakfast taco with chorizo.

Lunch: Smoked Duck Pastrami sandwich from Noble Sandwich.

Dinner: Ramen Tatsu-Ya, where I’d order a Munchie Katsu Slider (I dream of this) and Tonkotsu Original ramen with a Spicy Bomb.

A pre and post shoot habit that hasn’t changed since your LOTR days…

I don’t really tend to have a strict habit that I stick to before and after shooting. Pre shooting tends to be about preparation. Post shooting, once home, I become a bit hermetic for the first few days to decompress from the experience.
