Time for Eat Film Festival again! Join us for a trip to Mexico with a a British nonagenarian on top of the roof of Central Market.

Elizabeth Carroll's zesty docu-portrait of the British-born Mexican food guru does equal justice to her spicy cooking and spiky personality.

The film [...] positions her less as an individual cookery queen than as a kind of gastronomical anthropologist — “an Indiana Jones of food,” notes one Mexican chef — responsible for concretely preserving and sharing a wealth of regional dishes and methods hitherto passed down largely through oral tradition, mother to daughter.

“Nothing Fancy” is cinematic comfort food of the first order. (Guy Lodge, Variety)
