Film Information

An intimate, candid perspective into the curious world of cookbook author and British ex-pat Diana Kennedy — widely regarded as the world’s expert on Mexican cuisine. At five feet tall and 97 years old, Diana is larger than life: a foul-mouthed fireball far more feisty and energetic than her age and petite frame let on.

Featuring extensive interviews with Diana Kennedy and famed chefs José Andrés, Rick Bayless, Gabriela Camara, and Alice Waters, DIANA KENNEDY provides an intimate look at the leading expert on Mexican cuisine. 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.” — Greenwich Entertainment
