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 that has become one of the most celebrated culinary legends of Mexican cuisine. Blending incredible archival footage from her many television appearances and unprecedented access to her ecologically sustainable home, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy is a charming homage to a culinary trailblazer and a true inspiration.

Featuring extensive interviews with Diana Kennedy and famed chefs José Andrés, Rick Bayless, Gabriela Cámara and Alice Waters, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy 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”.
