Featured collection - Diana Kennedy

The current display features books by Diana Kennedy (1923-2022) who explored, cooked, taught and wrote about Mexican cooking for more than 60 years. She was considered by many to be the leading non Mexican authority on its food and received Mexico's highest honor, the Order of the Aztec Eagle. Her first book, The Cuisines of Mexico (1972) was a best seller and was followed by ten others.

Ms. Kennedy was born in Sussex and lived in Canada and New York as well as Mexico and moved permanently to Zitacuaro, Michoacan in 1976.

Check out the library's selection of her books on display and also many more cookbooks from around the world under Dewey number 641 in the stacks.
