NOTHING FANCY: DIANA KENNEDY
Mixed Plate Elizabeth Carroll
United States, Mexico
“Cinematic comfort food of the first order” - Variety
For the past forty years, Diana Kennedy has devoted her life to documenting, describing and teaching authentic Mexican cooking. Known for her feisty personality, strict rules and insistence on fresh, sustainable produce, Kennedy has published nine cookbooks covering every facet of regional Mexican cuisine drawn from years of travelling the country. But how did a 96-year-old white British woman with a blunt sense of humour and a .25 calibre pistol stuffed in her handbag become the global expert on authentic Mexican cooking?
Stuffed with good food and beautiful locations, NOTHING FANCY: DIANA KENNEDY is a gorgeous portrait of the cooking world’s most unique people. At a time when mass-produced Mexican food is everywhere and the pleasures of slow living seem just out of grasp, NOTHING FANCY plates up an extraordinary story of simplicity, authenticity and joy.
