The trip will start and end in Mexico City. For more details go to her website.

  1. Hello Marilyn– First, my profound apologies – I just returned from a lengthy trip to Vietnam during which I didn’t check my e-mails Delighted you kept me on your list for food travel opportunities in Mexico – and certainly an opportunity to cook with Diana Kennedy should be at the top of every serious Mexican foodie’s list. Just as an aside – I used to know Diana’s sister in New York City where she worked as a well-known public relations executive. A long time ago and I still have a copy of Diana’s first book on Mexican cooking. I doubt that it was her only one. If there is still an opening for this trip, can you send me more details while I check if I can make it so soon after my return from Asia and check air fares and availability – which City would I fly into? I will certainly give it a try but must check against prior business commitments here. Looking forward to hearing more from you – and this being New Year’s Eve – my very best wishes to you and staff for a Happy & Healthy 2015. Warm regards – Hermine

    • Hermine: I did want to get back to you regarding the bootcamp at Diana’s. I have nothing to do with organizing this but rather was just passing on the information. If you are interested in attending, I suggest that you contact: as she is doing the arrangements for this trip and can provide you with any needed information. Good luck and do have a good new year.
