56 Years of Traveling, Cooking, and Writing in Mexico

Diana Kennedy billed her MAD3 talk as a reflection on the six decades she has spent celebrating Mexico’s culture, landscape, and gastronomy. But given her brilliant, charmingly irascible ways, it was no surprise to see that she didn’t simply use her time for a nostalgic look back. Instead, she drew on her studies and experiences as a way to argue for the importance of sustainability.
