Who knew that one of the world’s most respected authorities on Mexican cuisine was a 96-year-old Englishwoman? After seeing NOTHING FANCY: DIANA KENNEDY that’s a fact you’ll never forget. In this educational and entertaining documentary, we’re introduced to a singularly passionate cookbook author who has spent her life travelling around Mexico documenting culinary traditions for posterity. This is an exceptionally charming portrait of a woman who has been described as “an Indiana Jones of food”.
After the screening Tuesday of NOTHING FANCY, there will be a Taco pop-up at Legal!
