6:30 P.M. Welcome Drinks
6:45 P.M. Screening of Nothing Fancy: Diana Kennedy
8:15 P.M. Q&A
8:30 P.M. Reception

Nothing Fancy: Diana Kennedy provides an intimate, candid perspective into the curious world of 95-year-old cookbook author and British expatriate Diana Kennedy, widely regarded as the world’s foremost academic expert on Mexican cuisine. Standing barely five feet tall, with a thick English accent, Kennedy is a formidable critic of anyone who doesn’t agree with her views on Mexican culinary traditions, or—heaven forbid—doesn’t recycle. The author of nine acclaimed cookbooks, Kennedy has spent nearly 70 years exploring Mexico (typically solo in her truck) and researching the country’s varied and complex cuisines. A two-time James Beard Award winner,  Kennedy was decorated with an Order of the Aztec Eagle from the Mexican government in 1982 and became a Member of the Order of the British Empire from the UK in 2002. Despite her notable achievements,  Kennedy is difficult to categorize; often referred to as the “Julia Child of Mexico.” Given her edgier style, however, she prefers a different title: “The Mick Jagger of Mexican Cuisine.”
