Chef, Restaurateur and Humanitarian José Andrés
A two-star Michelin chef with an award-winning group of restaurants, several cookbooks and whose Spanish-inspired food popularized tapas-style small plates in the U.S., José Andrés is not resting on his laurels. Through his nonprofit World Central Kitchen, the award-winning chef has responded to an earthquake-devastated Haiti, Hurricane Maria-ravaged Puerto Rico, a refugee crisis on the Venezuelan border and right here in wildfire-scorched Southern California, quickly mobilizing volunteer chefs to prepare fresh, nourishing meals for thousands of people in need. During the coronavirus pandemic, Andrés led the charge to provide food relief to the elderly, those suddenly without work and frontline health care and essential workers.
