“Comfort food of the first order! A zesty documentary portrait of the British-born Mexican food guru.” – Guy Lodge, Variety

Master chef, teacher and environmental activist Diana Kennedy is living proof that size has nothing to do with strength. Now in her 90s and barely five feet tall, she’s a fierce jolt of energy who has become one of the most celebrated culinary legends of Mexican cuisine. Blending incredible archival footage from her many television appearances, extensive interviews with Kennedy and famed chefs José Andrés, Rick Bayless, Gabriela Camara and Alice Waters, and unprecedented access to her ecologically sustainable home, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy is a charming homage to a culinary trailblazer and a true inspiration – a two-time James Beard Award winner and author of nine acclaimed cookbooks who has been called the “Julia Child of Mexico,” as well as the feisty cook’s own preferred nickname, “The Mick Jagger of Mexican Cuisine.” (Dir. by Elizabeth Carroll, 2019, USA/Mexico, 82 mins., Not Rated)
