October 10-13, 2019 will bring the seventh Flatirons Food Film Festival to Boulder, a carefully-curated smorgasbord of local, national and international films, speakers, art, and special events. This year’s festival features an exploration into immigrants and international cuisine, including a Saturday night tribute to Diana Kennedy, a British expatriate known by some as the Julia Child of Mexico. The tribute will begin with a Mexican feast and end with a discussion with James Beard semi-finalist Chef Claudette Zepeda, a San Diego-based chef most recently known for her time as the executive chef and partner behind El Jardín, a regional Mexican restaurant in San Diego, and Top Chef Denver. Inspired by the regional cuisines of Mexico where her passion for food was first cultivated, El Jardín was an expression of Zepeda’s culinary journey as a chef.
