Event Description

Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy - Virtual Film Screening Friday, May 22-Thursday, May 28 One $9.99 ticket is good for a 3-day pass to see Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy. Passes available beginning May 22. After you watch the film, join a virtual Q&A with the director, culinary icon Alice Waters,two-time James Beard semifinalist Gabriela Cámara (A Tale of Two Kitchens) and New York Times City Kitchen columnist David Tanis: Saturday, May 23 at 7 pm CT. Click here to register. At five feet tall and 95 years old, Diana Kennedy is larger than life: a foul-mouthed fireball far more feisty and energetic than her age and petite frame let on. British ex-pat Kennedy has spent over sixty years researching and documenting the regional cuisines of Mexico on her own. Kennedy has lived ‘off-the-grid’ on an eight-acre ranch outside Zitácuaro, Michoacán since the 1970’s: composting, growing her own crops, and using solar power to run her home. Aware of her own mortality, she is working tirelessly to solidify the legacy of her life’s efforts, with the hope of turning her home into a foundation for culinary education in Mexico. Featuring extensive interviews with Diana Kennedy and famed chefs José Andrés, Rick Bayless, Gabriela Camara and Alice Waters, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy provides an intimate portrait of a still vibrant culinary trailblazer. The author of nine acclaimed cookbooks and a two-time James Beard Award winner, Diana is called the “Julia Child of Mexico”, but the feisty cook prefers “The Mick Jagger of Mexican Cuisine”. Director: Elizabeth Carroll | 2019 | In English and Spanish with English subtitles| 82 minutes | NR
