The #MeToo movement has been an opportunity to address this situation. Restaurant industry insiders Beth Gruitch, a partner in the Crafted Concepts restaurant group, and Sara Brito, Co-Founder of the Good Food Media Network and publisher of the Good Food 100 Restaurants™, will share their insights on this topic.
Small Bites: Short Films for Food People is a program of short films that will include our Colorado Student Film Contest winning films, several other captivating short films, and El Jardin, an episode in the Emmy Award-winning The Migrant Kitchen series from KCET that profiles visiting speaker Chef Claudette Zepeda.
Featuring a Mexican feast with an assortment of bites of regional Mexican food, a film about Diana Kennedy (often called the Julia Child of Mexico), and an interview of Top Chef Denver competitor and James Beard semi-finalist Chef Claudette Zepeda, formerly of San Diego restaurant El Jardin, by former Eater Denver editor Andra Zeppelin, our tribute to Diana Kennedy is a must-see about a culinary legend.
Join us for a late-night celebration of culinary legend Diana Kennedy and her substantial contribution to our culinary culture. Come lift a glass to Diana Kennedy’s extensive research into Mexican regional cuisines and the nine cookbooks that she wrote about it. While this is a free event, registration is required.
