Southtown’s La Vida Gallery hosts world-renowned cookbook author Diana Kennedy on Saturday, beginning at 7 p.m.
"Oaxaca al Gusto" won this year's James Beard award for Cookbook of the Year.
Kennedy, whose UT Press publication “Oaxaca al Gusto: An Infinite Gastronomy” recently won the James Beard Foundation’s Cookbook of the Year, will be signing copies of this book, which describes the diverse cuisine of Oaxaca’s 11 regions with hundreds of recipes and photos, along with three previously published works: “The Art of Mexican Cooking,” “From My Mexican Kitchen: Techniques and Ingredients” and “My Mexico: A Culinary Odyssey with More Than 300 Recipes.”
Limited copies of all four cookbooks will be available for purchase at La Vida Gallery the day of the event and in advance either by phone or in person. Prices per copy range from $30 to $50. La Vida Gallery is at 716 S. Alamo St.
