@fogoftruth Episode 904: DIANA KENNEDY: NOTHING FANCY and AGAVE: THE SPIRIT OF A NATION

This week, we briefly step away from our problems at home (while never forgetting or minimizing them) to celebrate the culinary traditions of our neighbors to the south. Guest host Sandie Angulo Chen (of Common Sense Media) joins us as we review Elizabeth Carroll’s Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy, which profiles the titular nonagenarian, British-born specialist of Mexican cuisine. Then, Chris interviews director Nick Kovacic about his 2018 documentary Agave: The Spirit of a Nation, which brings the viewer on a journey to Jalisco, Oaxaca, and other locations in Mexico to explore agave’s place in the economy and culture. Eat and drink your fill! As always, you can find the audio of the episode on our “episodes” page, on Apple Podcasts and other sites.
