José Ramón Andrés Puerta (born 13 July 1969), known as José Andrés, is a Spanish-American[1] chef often credited for bringing the small plates dining concept to America.[2] He owns restaurants in Washington D.C.; Philadelphia; Los Angeles; Las Vegas; South Beach, Florida; and Dorado, Puerto Rico. Andrés is chair of the advisory board for LA Kitchen,[3] a social enterprise in Los Angeles, California that works to reduce food waste, provide job training, and increase access to nutritious food. In September 2016 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal.[4]

Life and career[edit]

Andrés was born in Mieres, Principality of Asturias, Spain. He is married and has three daughters.[5] Early in his career, he trained under Ferran Adrià at the restaurant elBulli. Beginning in the fall of 2010, Andrés taught a culinary physics course at Harvard University with Ferran Adrià.[6] In May 2012, Andrés was named dean of Spanish Studies at The International Culinary Center, where he and Colman Andrews developed a curriculum in traditional and modern Spanish cuisine, which debuted in February 2013.[7] On 29 October 2012, he announced he was heading back to the classroom, and would teach his first course on how food shapes civilization at George Washington University next year,[8] which awarded him an honorary doctorate degree in public service on 18 May 2014, when he served as university's commencement speaker at the National Mall.[9]

Andrés became a naturalized U.S. citizen in December 2013.[1] In response to the 2010 Haiti earthquake, he formed World Central Kitchen that works to provide healthy food to families and individuals touched by disasters. The organization operated in Southern California during the December wildfires to assist firefighters and first responders including the huge Thomas Fire in Ventura County. The organization also provided food to families affected by the fires.[10]

Trump Hotel restaurant[edit]

Andrés planned to open a restaurant in the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC, in 2016. However, after Trump made disparaging comments about Mexicans in June 2015, Andrés withdrew from the contract with the Trump Organization, which then sued him.[11] Andrés counter-sued, and the parties reached a settlement in April 2017.[12] Andrés remains an outspoken critic of Trump.[13][14]
