On Saturday, November 19, the legendary Diana Kennedy will be at the Aptos Farmers Market from 10am – 11am to visit with market customers and to sign her latest cookbook release: Nothing Fancy — Recipes and Recollections of Soul-Satisfying Food.
Featuring new and revised recipes, photos, and bêtes noires, this culminating book of an illustrious career presents the favorite dishes and personal stories of the world’s foremost authority on traditional Mexican cooking and one of its most celebrated food writers.
Diana Kennedy is the world’s preeminent authority on authentic Mexican cooking and one of its best-known food writers. Renowned for her uncompromising insistence on using the correct local ingredients and preparation techniques, she has taught generations of cooks how to prepare traditional dishes from the villages of Mexico, and in doing so, has documented and helped preserve the country’s amazingly diverse and rich foodways. Kennedy’s own meals for guests are often Mexican, but she also indulges herself and close friends with the nostalgic foods in Nothing Fancy.
Please arrive early — seating is limited. Copies of her cookbooks will also be available for sale.
